Happy Birthday to ME!!

Turned 28 and had a good birthday on Saturday, a big thank you to everyone who sent me LJ birthday greetings.

I was woken up by calls from England as both my parents and Nicky phoned to wish me well. Hoorah! I got to speak to my Aunt Jenny too as there was a family gathering going on back home in honour of Sy and Mel’s imminent departure to Australian shores. Was probably very sleepy on the phone, sorry, but was very good to hear and talk to everybody. Later that morning I also got a call from Pengie, yippee!

Sy told me that Molly is a fat lump. Her dog food is stored in a large bread bin and Dad had this container on the counter top. Sy came into the kitchen that morning to find that the shelf had collapsed under the weight, the kibble had split all over the floor and was fast entering Mowgli’s increasingly taut tummy. Greedy pup.

Bill was wonderful and made me pancakes for breakfast which I insisted on eating in bed, joined by Genghis and Quince, while I opened my present from Mum and Dad. Was very happy to find that despite the labelling on the customs form, it wasn’t underwear after all but rather a nice two piece swimming cossie. Thanks!

Once extracted from my duvet we then attempted to erect the fence in the back yard, but neither of us were in the mood for this really and so quickly gave up and decided to go to Lenox Mall to visit the Apple store as I am considering purchasing a Mac Laptops with some of my inheritance from Nanna and Grandad. Drooled over the 15″ Powerbooks but I think the 12″ is probably more in my price range.

Dropped by Gallyans so that Bill could buy himself a secret weapon for the forthcoming BrightHouse Ping Pong Tournament. He is now the proud owner of a spiffing table tennis bat which will defeat all opposition and no doubt never lose him a single point again. *nods* He has a big grin on his face now.

Browsed through Junkman’s Daughter in Little Five Points when we detoured on the way home before running to Publix where Bill bought cake ingredients.

Back at the house Bill then baked me a birthday cake!! Whoo hoo!

Topped the day off with a visit to the Thai restaurant in East Atlanta where we enjoyed some fabulous sushi (veggie lovers for me) then returned home for desert.

Very tasty indeed. Thanks babe.

Still waiting for my birthday present from Bill as it has yet to be delivered. Quite excited about that, have no idea what I’m getting. And then on Friday 26th I get my birthday treat…I get to go watch an ice hockey game. Atlanta Thrashers vs the New Jersey Devils. Hoorah! Want to see beardy blokes hit each other with big sticks on ice. *bounces*

    Yey! Glad you had a good day.
    I’m jealous of the shopping bit especially 😉
    That looks like a damned fine cake Bill has baked for you there, and what funky candles! Very impressive! I want some, and so does Betty, and Lynsey would too if I let her see it!
    Talking of Ninja Sprout, she was “(wo)man of the match” on Sunday at rugby after nearly scoring twice. She insists she did score, but the ref/whatever didn’t allow it as he thought it was on the line. As a result of being “man of the match”, she and the “man of the match” from the other team had to race each other to down a pint. Lyns doesn’t like beer, but she said that she necked all of hers before the other girl had drunk half of hers. Go Lynsey! I said you would be proud! She did look a bit peaky for the rest of the day though, and didn’t even eat anything (very worrying!). I think your Hen night was a good warm-up 😉

    Big hugs
    Love you loads babe
