Birthday!


I have been absent from the blogging world as I celebrated my 23rd birthday last Thursday and managed to spread the celebrations through out the weekend. Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday messages on fb and twitter, it made my day!
I had to work on Thursday but was greeted by the staff at my work singing happy birthday and a nice bottle of red wine. In the afternoon I went and got a Thai massage which I had never done before - I always have a sore back and neck from sitting at my work computer all the time but it is definitely much better after the massage. That night Brendan and I went to one of our favourite restaurants for some delicious Italian food. I was determined to order something different to my usual but when I got there I of course ordered the seafood risotto as per usual. After dinner my sister arrived all the way from Sydney to spend the weekend - definitely one of the best presents.

Friday night I went to my favourite tea house with some of my uni friends for tea and cakes which was really nice. Had the most amazing chai frappe oh my goodness it was to die for!! Then Saturday night we had friends over for drinks and spent the night dancing to old nineties music. It was a really good night but I was so tired on Sunday and ended up in bed my 8.30pm. All in all I had an absolutely wonderful weekend and feel it was a terrific start to my 24th year. Without turning this in to a post all about presents I wanted to share a few with you as I have went on about them on my blog before. I finally got my Filofax that I have been yapping on about. I spent all Friday morning putting in birthdays and getting organised, I am such a nerd but thats ok. Brendan got me the Pandora ring from this post that I have been spying on for awhile now, it has already attracted a lot of comments.


And finally I got a NEW BIKE! This present was a complete surprise and was given to me by my friends. These are pretty dorky photos but they demonstrated how excited I was. I cant wait to take it for a spin when this dreadful weather clears up - yes its raining here again :-(

  1. Aww...happy, happy birthday! The photos of you on the bike could not be more adorable...it's a total sweet moment of geek-out excitement! I can definitely say I've had a fair share of those in my birthdays. :)

    Wishing you all the best at the start of a new year! :) (Oh, and also wishing that no one combined your birthday and Christmas gifts. I always feel awful for December b-days. They seem to get the shaft giftwise!)

  5. Happy belated birthday! How fun to have a bike. I got my first grown-up bike a year or two ago and it's been a worthy investment. Looks like your day was a smash.
