Happy Birthday to me for the last time. Wow what a week it's been! First my wonderful dinner with my family, what a surprise and what a blast that was. Then our weekend away in Sydney with our good friends Carmel and Merv. That was a blast too! Seriously spoilt that's all I can say I am. Thank you guys I love ya.
This beautiful Pandora gift of two charms for my Breast Cancer pink leather bracelet from Carmel and Merv is gorgeous. The little wrapped present to remind me it was for my birthday and the little clock because as Carmel said time is racing by ha ha wait till she turns 50.
Our weekend was spent laughing, and sipping Bubbles and laughing and chatting. Adrian and Merv climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, very well done I must say. Carmel and I wandered the streets of Sydney, shopping in the Markets, and then decided after we were unable to get a facial or massage at short notice, that we would instead, take a ride on the super fast speed boat that flies across the harbour. We donned our totally classy looking plastic purple ponchos and wondered why we even bothered. Totally saturated at the end of the 45 min dash we stood dripping on the waterfront at Circular Quay. We screamed, laughed, spluttered as we copped mouthfuls of salty water, squinted through our totally splattered glasses and the salty stinging water. We had a blast. It was so much fun, so glad we did it. The guys were a little envious I think. No pictures of that though as absolutely everything is banned in the boats. You have to use both hands to hang on or go swimming ha ha!
Sunday morning found us at Manly for breakfast and strolling along the ocean front. The hot sun beating down and the ever present life savers on duty.
Sunny summer days in Australia are best spent near or on the water.
Even our animals take to the water when they can.
My birthday was fabulous, I was surrounded by people I love doing things I love to do, eating, drinking, going to the theatre, did I mention we went to Jersey Boys in Sydney? What better could I have asked for, nothing truly.
If 2011 is like this all year I will need lots of sleep and lots of exercise ha ha, what a way to go.
