wordful wednesday: happy birthday to me!


i became 47 fabulous years young last friday (the 26th)

considering tara wasn't here (a vital component to the enjoyment of ANY birthday!) - i had a pretty good day.  a fabulous day actually.  i had previously asked for a Wii fit - and i got one!

i also got some great new headphones for my ipod (which will come in handy on the plane on saturday!), a lovely scarf from the girls at work, the 'living oprah' book from miss 20, along with some gorgeous bangles and bracelets from her work, ready to drink cosmo mixture from miss 18 and all sorts of lovely other bits and pcs.

tara is also planning another birthday once i get to sydney!

i started my birthday with a body wrap and chakra massage, followed by lunch with the girls from work, afternoon tea with my friend sara then dinner out with the fam.

i had resigned myself to the fact that i wouldn't have a cake this year (tara has been surprising me with delicious home-made gourmet (her dad's a baker) birthday cakes for years), but my darling husband ordered this plate of chocolate, caramel, couli, cream and icecream goodness.

those wedges are solid chocolate - mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

thanks to everyone who made my birthday so special

you're never too old to get excited about your own birthday

Happy late birthday (again). I figure I was late the first time I wished it, I may as well wish it to you even later again. :)

No we can't! They are always fun. And you are almost a full year younger than me:)
