…I turned 32!
During dinner club the night before, Janine asked me what we were doing on my birthday to which I replied “going to Gold Class to watch Resident Evil Afterlife in 3D!”. She replied that it is truely like me; it’s either fine dining or gory movie with popcorn & maltesers! And true to that statement, first was the movie & popcorn with hubbie and then the week ended with fine dining with friends!
I had a lovely birthday; at work during a mid-morning meeting, the team set up a cake* with candles and turned off the lights so I could arrive to them singing happy birthday in the dark! It was sweet. (The * denotes the fact that the cake was infact a mound of brownies with a candle on top that they procured from the downstairs cafe!) None of the girls were around, so the boys took me to lunch at Wok on Inn, and then Jay took me out to the movies, where slight drama ensued (Macquarie Gold Class strikes again…they never get anything right…the food & drinks didnt arrive til the end of the movie so we had to cancel the order, we ended up eating Maccas for dinner).
My celebration dinner with friends was on Saturday night and it was so lovely. We went to Baroque in the City and had delicious French food, with good wine, surrounded by the pretty ambience and of course my friend’s wonderful company.
Jay, being the total darling that he is, organised fireworks out the window (haha!) and a beautiful cake custom made for yours truly…sponge, marscapone cream, strawberrie & gold leaf….
Big ups to Gracie for coming down even though she was sick (& for getting cricket man to leave early-ish) and to Tam for dragging her entire family and conning Leon into staying at Lindy’s place to babysit; I love you guys!
And here is my birthday loot!
So, what a wonderful way to enter into my 32nd year! I am truly blessed and loved.
