It was my birthday on Wednesday, the ripe old age of 33. Celebrated with a trip to the Pokolbin Vineyards and Tacos with the family. The Winery visits will be shared with you soon, but here’s my awesome birthday cake, with Makka Pakka, Hello Kitty and Random Orange Frog figurines /slash/ cake toppers added by the delightful little people in my life.
So, this Friday we have two lovely wines from the Angel Funded Naked Wines, which never fails to delight!
The Andevine Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 was a “bonus” for me this month in my case. Not the usual style we drink, but as soon as it was poured, it was a winner. I can’t always smell the spice or chocolate, but this had chocolate notes for sure! And went down just as well as chocolate ;)
Our other newbie this week was the Brian Fletcher Estate Western Australian Shiraz 2013, which was a suggestion based on my usual purchases from Naked, and I’m glad I slipped two into this order because it was well received with the Hunter Belle blue we were finishing off :)
Tried any new wine lately?
And yes, I can believe it.
While the time has flown, you’ve grown into such a little girl – I think you were a toddler for a brief few months my little niece.
You love your brother to an extreme, and he loves you back even if he does want a break sometimes!
You have an affinity for pink that is purely from within your glittery self!
xxxxxxxx Love you always!!!

Wonderful Pistachios. Unsalted were the ones for me – less moreish that way! Mixed reception in this house to the sweet chili…. the traditional salted ones were as good as ever. (gifted)
