Birthday Celebrations ~ the little lioness

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

    Happy birthday again! Kind of poetic to finish up at a workplace on your birthday, isn’t it?

    Also, I seem to be seeing His Noodliness in the most mundane of objects these days. I believe I may be closer to…whatever it is perhaps?

      Yup! And it was fun!

      Being touched by his noodly appendage?

    I’m so glad you had so much birthday loveliness that it spread out over two days :) And yay for workmates making sure that you can eat your own birthday cake! HUGSHUGSHUGS.

    Happy belated birthday! Certainly looks like it was a delicious one- I don’t often go for fried ice cream, but that photo makes me want to give it another chance. Yum!
