Monday mash-up!

Hi Friends! How are you all??? Great I hope!!! I know I haven't blogged for a while. I have had a busy week and promise to pop by all your awesome blogs soon! But I wanted to share what I've been upto, and some pics. So this is a Monday mash-up post!!!

First up; on the 25th it was my Birthday. I hit 27. But must say I'm feeling younger than that, but I guess everyone feels that way? I had a nice day, nice meal out with family and a nice homemade vanilla cake back home. 

I have to share a lovely Birthday card I received off the talented Brenda of Stamping Floral Fantasies:

and here is the card I got from my Mum and Dad:

On Saturday we had our first Christmas party luncheon for the season! Can you believe there is way less than 4 weeks to go until Christmas Day???  EEP!!!

Here are some pics I took at one of our local malls, that have started decorating for the occassion:

Santa's area was all set up ready and waiting for him to arrive; 

As well as the giant decorated Christmas tree:

 Santa even has his own post box:

 I do so love the decorations this time of year, the giant tree, the big presents, the reindeer and the lights and other trees etc!

And, of course, the nativity scene:

 I think I have shared before on my blog, pics of the crane birds/brolgas at the fountain - well they have taken on a very festive appearance:

Last night Mum and me attended a concert show at the local club, of a Roy Orbison tribute band! It was really great!!! The gentleman Athol Matcham had an amazing voice, it was as close to Roy as you would ever get! Here is a pic:

His wife, Edith, also sang some songs both with him and before he came on to warm up the crowd - she had a beautiful voice as well.

The band were very talented too, and also a lot of fun!!! Very comical gents.

It was a great night! We really enjoyed ourselves!!!

So that is about it! I hope you liked seeing my pics, and I will pop by your blogs soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs xoxo.
