Birthdays galore

Thursday was my birthday, I scored omelet for breakfast, a Dr Who calendar, Bill Bailey dvd, Goodies dvd, a couple of books of medieval tunes sheet music and the Spicks and Specks trivia game. I spent my day doing present shopping for Tom and having lunch with my mum and grandma. In the evening my mum and dad came with us for teppanyaki at Fujiya, which was entertaining and scrumptious, and there may have been some red bubbly and sav blanc involved. Good day :)

Today was Tom's birthday, we celebrated by taking five of his friends to Sydney Wildlife World, having lunch at the cafe there, gelato from the shop at the Aquarium and then cake from Michel's at home. It went pretty well considering we were out with six 7 year old boys, they all seemed to have fun and although Adam, my mum (no, she doesn't live with me, in fact she spent last night at my sister's place) and I were pretty tired our nerves were in good order. Tom got Guitar Hero for his birthday so that's been getting quite a workout this afternoon. As I type this, Adam is cooking a BBQ dinner, my dad and his mum are here and we're having steak, snags, prawns, corn on the cob, jacket potatoes, greek salad and coleslaw - quite a feast.

Tonight I plan on going to bed early.

Happy Birthday to both of you!!!

We ate at the Lizard's Lounge a few times. It was right next to our hotel.

I think we ate there our first night actually--all jet-lagged ; )
