"Makes Me Happy Monday" number 37.


Happy Monday to you all. Plenty to be happy about here at Kainga. I was so happy to see the Dutch Iris starting to bloom. Last Wednesday they started to bud then on the weekend they came out in bloom. I love Dutch Iris,there are several parts of the garden that have a few tucked in between other plants.
On Sunday Ian celebrated his Birthday. He is a big Brisbane Lions fan and he was given lots of gifts to do with this. So he now has a new shirt mug cup photo frame etc. Which I noticed was on his bedside table,will have to shift that I think!!! Lucy bought him some number plate surrounds,these he put straight away on his ute. Talking about the ute I am so HAPPY to say that on Friday Ian picked it up from the panel beaters. You may remember it was damaged in the hail storm that Perth had earlier on in the year. Six weeks ago today it was put into be repaired, we thought it would be ready in a week maybe two weeks. I am sure the panel beater has a list. A list of excuses.
I am also happy to have found a new author by the name of Clare O"Donohue. I am reading the first book called "The Lover's Knot" If you like Jennifer Chiaverini's books these are very much the same.
I am really happy that Bonnie and Ryan shifted into there new home last week. I got to give her belongings that have been in the spare room. Plus a few boxes from the shed have gone to. There is still more to go but Bonnie tells us that she is busy every weekend for the next couple of months!!!!
I found this little tidbit in a magazine the other week and I knew it would have made the English very happy- In 1547 English Law abolished the method of boiling people to death as a form of execution for criminals. That makes me so happy to be living in 2010.
I hope you all have a Happy Monday.

Happy birthday to your bloke. Please tell him I'm sorry he's a Lion's fan and hope he's over it soon LOL.
At least he won't be allowed to boil me alive!

I bet it is nice to get some room in the spare room.

Your flowers always make me happy too! We have several Dutch Iris plants throughout our yard too. They are so majestic, aren't they? Happy to be living in 2010 with you too. That boiling people story sounded so medieval!

Hello Bev, how are you? I've been following ur blog, although I've been quiet lately :-) I'm loving the Dutch iris!


Pauline said...

Happy Birthday to Ian, Bev. I am trying to blog about our Sunday but Blogger made my Monday very frustrating. Again today no joy! I decided to accept it will happen when the planets are better aligned or something!!
Love your Dutch Iris!
