a week ago today…

…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.

One thought on “a week ago today…

  1. Your presents look fabulous! I love that clutch and I want one of those Napolean make up sets! I haven’t seen Woodwick candles before but am going to look them up.

    Wish we had been there for your party.
