Kidnapped!

On Thursday my daughters Sherry and Rosanne kidnapped me........ Why you say?


Need I say more;  I am now officially the wrinkley age........
 When Sherry picked me up I had  NO idea where we were going , told to pack an overnight bag.....
First stop New Dundee Tea Room and Emporium built in  1887


                                                         where Rosanne was waiting..
We enjoyed High Tea...





....  scones and jam and clotted cream , dainty sandwiches , teas  and    sweet treats...So good, we could not eat  all the 3 tier of goodies.........




Doggy box of treats


 We browsed the emporium side   ohing and ahing over some beautiful clothes and jewellery..
Sherry found a few things!
Next stop    Meadow Acres Garden Center In  St. Petersburg On.  which is  decorated for Halloween and also Christmas has arrived there. So many unique ideas      for Xmas decor,   a couple you may see on this blog later in Nov....

Off we drove to Stratford where we   strolled the main street  visiting many   cute shops there, Bradshaws Kitchen  store, Rhea Thompson chocolate shop....
... and  cute    gift  shops.....

Back into  the vehicles   and a short drive later  to, as it is called Stone Town,  St. Marys. and the  Westover Inn..........St Marys  is called stone town because many of the  churches and buildings are built with limestone  which was quarried there......so picturesque.

The Westover Inn a lovely  1867 Victorian  home   located on 19   landscaped   acres, well known for their award winning cuisine........

My cosy room was decorated with Birthday touches from banners , birthday balloons and  buttons



 to  a floral arrangement  from the grandchildren, Thanks so much to  Brianne  Brock  Brittany and Brayden!

 to wine and appetizers........


 We sipped wine and ate our nibbles......

being shown the  lovely charms and told the meaning.
I opened my present tho after the day I was more than happy with just the time with my daughters........A lovely Pandora bracelet with charms.....

Girls made me put on all the   65 touches,

they  were certainly chuckling!
Dressed  for  the  7 PM dinner ,  
it is a  lovely dining room, we had the table in the bay window!

dinner was   delicious as was the wine......  Westover certainly can  boast about their award winning cuisine...
and  yes they even acknowledged my birthday.........  candles all aglow on ginger cake with pumpkin ice cream........

After our late dinner  back in the room where we   changed again..... into jamas...

and a rather scary  cape!


Witch Rosanne


.. to sip more wine!
Crowding on the bed
 having many laughs............Next day after a most filling breakfast we were off to the spa.....
Pedicures, manicures,  brow waxing........   fun time!



Explored the main street of St Marys visiting McPherson's Craft store, Castle Garden store and even another chocolate shop.....
Late  afternoon   lunch  and then home............ What a way to celebrate a birthday!

Thanks to my  most amazing daughters for the fabulous surprise...  thanks for all the  considerate planning and all the fun and laughs  we had....
You are both  terrific women!
Thanks for the wonderful memories of this  birthday ..  making me feel  special and well loved..........
Thanks  so very much  ! Kisses and Hugs to both of you!

Good evening dear Rosemary, and Happy Belated Birthday wishes. I am so sorry I missed your birthday, especially as it was a special one. It looks like your daughters totally spoilt you, and you so deserved it. Hope all is well your end, I have been absent from blogging for a while, but am trying to get back into it. Hope to be back really soon, big hugs Linda x
