Happy Birthday to me!
I'm finishing up the week feeling very loved after a week of birthday festivities.
The boys woke me this morning with breakfast in bed, a gift and 4 bunches of flowers.
One from each of them. Just beautiful!
The morning was spent answering birthday phone calls (such a lovely start to the day), reading birthday text and facebook messages and getting the boys ready for school. Simon and I decided to have lunch at The Grounds. Always a great place to spend some time.
The sun was shining and it was great to have a wander around while we waited for our table.
Lunch was delicious! We decided on the steak sandwich and lamb parpadelle with a side of fries + polenta chips. We picked up some Nutella balls on the way out to take home for afternoon tea instead of having a birthday cake.
After school we lit a candle and the boys sang me Happy Birthday. The Nutella Balls were divine!
Mum always used to buy me balloons for my birthday growing up, so she had some delivered today.
One balloon for every year. 39 balloons in total. Love them!
Earlier in the week Simon and I met up with some friends for an early birthday dinner and drinks at Manly Wine. A jug of Grapefruit Margaritas and some nibbles.
Finn and I met my mum for dinner last night and Finn ordered this Nutella Calzone for dessert. Nutella, marshmallows + nuts. OMG so decadent! It really has been a week of celebrations!
I also managed to fit in a movie. We saw the "First Monday in May". A fashion documentary on the creation of the Metropolitan Museums's fashion exhibitions and behind the scenes of the Met Ball. Very interesting! Ever since "The September Issue" I have been hooked on these glimpses into the fashion world.
So another birthday done and dusted!
I'm looking forward to the year ahead and whatever it may hold.
How has your week been? Any birthdays coming up?
