Day 729

Deep Fried 42

Don't you just love Facebook for feeling loved on your birthday?  I love that I get happy birthdays from people I know well, people I used to know, people I went to school with, people who know me but who I am very vague on, people I met at a party once .....

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a birthday.  Absolutely gorgeous.

After getting up early to blog and check emails I snuck back into bed so that I could be "woken up" by the family.  Husband and son were enthusiastic well-wishers, whereas daughter took some time to warm up after being woken up for the birthday celebrations.  I "ordered" an egg and bacon roll for breakfast and was then showered with pressies and cards and cuddles.  My birthday didn't change the fact that I needed to yell  scream encourage the kids to do their jobs and that I started to swear curse tsk tsk the dirty dishes in the sink and the random socks lying around the house. But at least my pleas were met with mild enthusiasm instead of eye rolling.

Derek then headed to work while the kids and I went for my nails appointment.  Once my toes and fingers were perfectly kitted out we met Husband in town for a lovely outdoor luncheon at an Italian eatery before the kids and I hit the shops.  Gorgeous!! Given I stuffed myself with food it was time for me to have a little Nanna nap so we headed home and I went straight to bed awaking only to watch The Bold and the Beautiful on my BRAND NEW digital bedroom TV.

Yes, it was a lovely day for a birthday.  Absolutely gorgeous.  And the best news ... it's not over yet! Tahlia and I got Mary Poppins tickets for our birthdays (from Mum) so we're off to Sydney this morning for some supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ......


  1. Sounds like you had the perfect happy birthday. I'm going to Mary Poppins next month with my mum. Can't wait.

    Enjoy! :-)
