Late - Friday Smiles

Share a smile...
Week 136
Hi everyone - well it's late Sunday afternoon here and I've just found some time to enter the craftavan and check my blog.  I figured I'd missed Friday Smiles at Annies blog but when I read her post I just knew I had to share some smiles this week from our neck of the woods.
It was hubby's birthday on Friday and we had a few family and friends over for dinner.  Sophie helped me with putting the candles on the cake - a few got pushed to the bottom and a few got a bit bent  but that didn't stop us lighting them up for her to join with pa to blow them out.
 Stephen got a new home beer brewing kit from us all, so here he is a few minutes ago, making his first brew in years... loves his beer.
 And I've dug out an assortment of chairs for under the shady mango tree - it's just so nice down there with a cuppa and I can admire my freshly mowed lawn. This is one of my hibiscus plants, just opening in full bloom this morning - it needs some tender loving care - especially as it was nearly discarded a month ago when it only had one live branch left - so glad I didn't pull it up.
Thanks for dropping by, hope you have an enjoyable weekend, cheers
