Another important day today; it is our oldest son's birthday! Which also makes this the anniversary of our last half a day as a coupla dinks... (double-income-no-kids, remember those 90's acronyms?) I have made Tim something for his birthday, and will get a picture of it, soon.
In the meantime, here is my Me-Made June piccie for today. Including my new umbrella, that I bought the other day. Cute, no? Yes, it is black (yah, I know, blah blah boring, sorry) but it does have a cute frill around the edge, which redeems it somewhat and rescues it from predictability. It's kind of exciting that I managed to get out in the rain for one of these pics, I was wondering if it wouldn't happen at all this month!
Thank you so much everyone for your umbrella comments the other day! I did go and check out those links. Whilst I do harbour fantasies about covering my own umbrella one of these days, the immediacy of winter necessitated this purchase; I got it the day Sam and I went out for shopping and lunch together for his birthday. Sooo fortunate that I did, because it started to pour when we went out to go home!!
