Holy Cow! What a jam-packed weekend! I WAS totally spoilt - and thank you so much for all your well-wishes!
Sunday saw us up early, to go to an early Church Service, to see our friend's "miracle baby" (they were told they'd never be able to concieve children!), Amelie, dedicated (like a "naming service"). Back to their place for a quick drink & bite to eat. Then off to the Hil.ton Adelaide, to check in, and let the kids swim in the Hil.ton pool! We dropped the kids back home, where our folks were going to babysit, and we were off to Gold Class Movies, with 2 other couples! I wish I could've taken a photo of the "Double Icecream Sundae" that we ordered, but it was dark in the cinema! It was enormous - we reckon it had close to 2 litres of icecream in it!!! We saw "Run Fat Boy Run" which had some hilarious moments in it - I had tears pouring down my face at one stage!!! It was my kind of humour... immature humour! It also had the nice "feel good" story line. After the movie, we all went out for dinner - not that we were very hungry after gourging ourselves with the huge icecream! We said goodbye to our friends, and cruised, with the windows down, and the music thumping - back to the Hil.ton Hotel. I hardly got any sleep.... the pillows were crunchy (among other things!). We had a yummy buffet breakfast, the next morning... and then my birthday was officially over. Went home to do washing, ironing, cleaning up and cooking!!!
I got great pressies, but the thing I loved the most, was I spent my day with the people that matter the most. (besides, a few family member that I didn't get to see... of course!) My kids gave me a variety of things, they dug up from under their beds! I got a CD holder for the car (from Miss M's showbag last year), she made a big poster for me, and a teddy bear made out of harma beads. H-man made me a bookmark. I also got chocolate, a Bea.nie kids lanyard, a pen (from our company!) and a bali watch, that was too big for Miss M!!! My wonderful friends gave me - the biggest chocolate frog I've ever seen, a China Story on DVD, an organic bath soap and my other friends gave me a Wil.low Tree firgurine called "With Affection - I love our friendship"... awww! My in-laws bought me a ginormous bottle of perfume. And my spunky husband gave me a wonderful day, and 2 great CDs!
I am so blessed.
