My birthday is in a couple of days time and like every other year I am brimming with the excitement of a six year old. I just love parties and cakes and balloons and party dresses but now that I'm a little more grown up I've replaced the pink lemonade with pink champagne! I am secretly hoping that one year my husband will turn up with a car laden with beautifully wrapped gifts with enormous pink bows however I know that will not be the case this year as he's taking me away for my birthday.
We are heading off to Honeyfield cottage in South Australia which I posted a story on my travel page some months back. A few days in this gorgeous little Provincial style cottage has been on my wish list for a couple of years so it will be a well deserved break. It's set in the foothills of olive groves and vineyards but has the added advantage of being close to some beautiful beaches. Robe is a small fishing port so fresh seafood is big business. All the local restaurants specialize in locally caught fresh crays so I looking forward to Lobster Thermidor for my birthday dinner.
