Birthday Celebrations

Kicked off my birthday last Friday at the gym – I’d been awake since 4:30am, so why not get up and hit the gym at six so I could indulge later in the day? ;) This was after getting a cute cute tote bag from Rish from Honeybee in Newcastle, that I hadn’t told him I’d been eyeing off! (sorry have packed it away!)

Met with Rish afterwards for a coffee at the Purple Pickle.

I made it to work about nine, with a bag of mini redskins, milkos and sherbies to hype everyone also up with (because I was bouncing off the walls!) and the birthday fairy had been overnight!

Birthday/last day at work

My desk was so clean, only because that was my last day! There was 2pm cake – one of the girls made me a cake using a gluten free Rowsie’s Cakes cakemix she’d picked up a supabarn, with some raspberries on top. Nom nom.

I picked up my bamboo and left at about 3:30pm… off to tidy the house ahead of having workmates over to help me work through some of the wine – a social way of having less to pack!

On Saturday night, Rish took me to My’s Vietnamese in Weston so that he could FINALLY try their laksa that I’d been going on about.

We took a bottle of champagne that I’d been given for my birthday/farewell. It was wonderful!

Started with the fresh rice paper rolls.

I had my usual – Rice noodles with tofu and veges

Rish was happy with his Laksa :)

But still had room for deep fried ice cream with caramel topping!

A lovely night, topped off by being watched over by His Noodliness

My favourite! Rice noodles with veges and tofu

I could eat this dish once a week and not get sick of it. In fact, I think it did that last winter! My’s Vietnamese at Cooleman Court is a short walk and even shorter drive from work (and now from my house) so I was very happy to drag the family there for dinner when they visited.
