Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Another birthday for the Old Feller.

Ken turned 67 last Friday. His sister brought their Mum over to our house for tea. I usually buy Ken a crayfish for his birthday tea, but they were about $40 each, and we were going out for dinner with friends on Saturday night, so I couldn't justify the extra expense for a few mouthfuls of cray! One of Ken's favourite meals is chicken and chips from Sammy's Charcoal Chicken shop in Eltham, so I decided that would do him for tea. I bought a mud cake for dessert, put a few candles and a Happy Birthday sign on it, and that was his birthday tea - how easy is that! MIL likes chips too, and she enjoyed being with us for a simple meal away from the hostel.
Before SIL left, I got a few photos of the four of us in various groupings with MIL. This one is a nice shot of Ken and his Mum, but I seem to have shrugged at the wrong moment!
