I feel like I had a 2 day celebration, as a friend of ours has his birthday the day before me, so we had a joint brunch with our joint friends. It was lovely, and Cafe Cinema ( where we went) made us a cake!Which was so kind of them.
Then, that evening we went out with some other friends who have just bought a yacht! How amazing is that! We have some rather lovely friends!
Here's mum living the high life!
This is us, sailing off into the sunset.
And it wasn't even my birthday yet.
So, yesterday, on my actual birthday, the sun was shining and we drove to Mangonoui to have my usual birthday treat of some fish and chips. As ever it was delicious.
So delicious, in fact, that this wee gull wanted some too.
My smiley face - you can tell I really like fish and chips!
We stopped off at Te Ngare bay to say hi to Paula, then headed home
Then in the evening, barely over our early lunch, Lloyd, mum and I headed over to Paihia to do Darryl's dinner cruise. We've heard lots of good things about it from people that have been before and it didn't disappoint. It was such good fun and the dinner was spectacular!
This is a wee pic of the three of us under Haruru Falls. ( mum has another one that we all have huge cheesy grins in, so I'll try to get it from her)
I have had such a great birthday. Been spoiled rotten. Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes.
