Belated Merry Christmas oh and my Birthday!!

Christmas came and went without a drama/disaster (which is a welcome change) but full of fun and frivolity (do people still use that word??

My Birthday was extremely low-key but also full-on. Birthday breakfast – FRENCH TOAST … YUM — presents and coffee (of course!)

Mum and Dad took the boys (yes, BOTH) overnight while Michael and I went to Ikea to shop (yay, verily romantic!!) for a new sofa and other things domestic!!

Came home, napped then went to dinner at era at South Brisbane/West End area. It’s the same mob who used to own Circa in the city and they did not miss a beat. Everything was excellent and can’t wait to go back.

We were supposed to go see Casino Royale in gold class but I was hooked on all the snoozing without the kids and nearly fell into my Crème Brule!!! Home and asleep by 9.30pm…..

…. awake at 7.30am NICE!!!!!!!!!!!! Up for breakfast at SouthBank and then we raced across the road for JB. And let me tell you, the new boy? ….not bad at all!! Lunch at Mum and Dad’s and to collect children. Not a bad birthday in the whole scheme of things.

Tonight Scrapbook City have their Cyber Crop and in-store crop Extravaganza Madness!!! Make sure you drop in if you have time to say hello!!! Some very exciting things coming in the new year, so stay tuned!!

One thought on “Belated Merry Christmas oh and my Birthday!!

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Another bloody Capricorn I cant escape you guys, My hubby and best friend are both Capricorns. Sounds like you had a really nice time celebrating your birthday, exactly what I would want to do. (espec. the IKEA part) I loved the cyber crop last night it would be better if they had a web cam in the shop so I could see all of you guys having fun.
