Day 910

Can I hear you say WOOT WOOT?

Come on ... louder .... I want to hear a really big WOOT WOOT!!!

Everybody ... altogether now ... WOOT WOOT!!!!

Today is my fantastically gorgeous generous adventurous fabulous Mum's birthday.  That's a hell of a lot of "ous" words right there, but what else can I say about Mum?  She's an "ous" type of gal ...

She was given a second chance at life almost 30 years ago and hasn't stopped living since.  She climbs mountains, treks through jungles, builds cyclone proof community centres for remote island villagers in the Solomon Islands. She volunteers to help transport the sick, she volunteers to help me, she volunteers to put in watering systems in Papua New Guinea. She's not afraid to break a nail, sweat, or pull a muscle as she shovels shit.  But she'll make damn sure she looks good as she does it. She'll never hire in a gardener, cleaner or painter preferring always to do it herself.  Yet she's stylish, glamorous and likes fashion and glitter in her life. She's not afraid of manual labour or hard work in general.  She's as strong as an ox but as pretty as picture.  She'll travel hours to see a great show, or to attend a lunch with family or to follow us if we decide to go somewhere else for Christmas.  She's not one to sit in her comfort zone. Nothing is ever too hard or nowhere is ever too far for my mum.  She's motivational, inspiring and down right AMAZING.  And she gives great Nanny cuddles - the kids adore her.

So I think that deserves a bloody loud Woot Woot.  Don't you?


Happy birthday Mum.
