Upcoming Birthday

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.

Dear Melissah .... Happy happy Birthday! Which day is it and I will send you a virtual cake! Your trip sounds wonderful and you won't believe it but lobster thermidor is one of my favourites if not my favourite and of course pink champagne! Have a gorgeous time with lots of fun. You are so like me as I adore balloons, pretty party dresses, flowers and elegantly wrapped presents! I guess we never grow up but I think that is a good thing!
Happy Birthday and best wishes
