Happy Birthday to Me!!!

(Monday 24th May) - I'm 21 today - it's weird and I don't feel any different but I have more stuff

Yesterday we had friends over for lunch - Nick roasted 2 legs of lamb and made up some tabuli and hummus and cut up some salad vegies and fetta and olives and we had kababs - with lavash bread - it was soooo good!!!
Then we had cake - from the Cheesecake shop - YUM!!!!! Mocha mud cake 3 layers filled with 2 layers of coffee flavoured cream and topped with 2cm thick chocolate icing OH MY GOSH it was GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

A couple of friends gave me Scatorgories - so after a few people left we played like 6 games - (there were 7 of us) it was great!!! But try coming up with original answers for Colours starting with W or Vegetables begining with M.

Then when there was only me nick and al left we had leftovers for dinner (mmmm lamb sandwiches)
and we watched Hercules (disney) another of my presents - its in my top 5 favourite disney flicks and neither of the guys had seen it - I was shocked - but they liked it - i may have to watch it again later today.

I also got a lantern with a kiwi fruit flavoured candle from "dusk"

There was nothing on TV last night so we went to bed an watched another episode of Red Dwarf (my mothers day present season 1 dvd) - there's only one episode left!!!

Woke up this morning at 6am YUCK but I watched the sunrise with a capuccino - so that was nice - then the baby got up and I got presents. Nick bought me an address book with a hand painted picture of Venice on it from a little boutique shop he found when he was in Melbourne on a business trip last Wednesday (il papiro)
And Elana gave me a book that I've never read by an author I like (the other side of the story by Marian Keyes) - it's actually on order from the library - I'm like 114 in the que)
And a got a beautiful gold locket also from Nick.

A couple of days ago when I went shopping two of my best friends gave me a set of earrings - so I'm all set

Tonight we're doing the family thing - my mum dad sister her boyfriend and mums brother with nicks dad mum and younger brother and sister. We're going to a great pizza/pasta place called Castelli's - they have the best bread!!!!!

And Thursday we're getting Nicks parents to babysit and Nick's taking me out for dinner and a movie (Goldclass - TROY)

Anyway there's a truckload of washing up to do (we had 12 adults and 3 children over yesterday) so I better get started *sigh*

Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
Another trip around the sun

And the whole clan gathers round
And gifts and laughter do abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you're one year older!
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn't over!
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplish much
But you didn't die this year
I guess that's good enough

So let's drink to your fading health
And hope you don't remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year

Does it feel like you're doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You're starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It's downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice

But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn't ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life's so sad it's funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake

That's the song we sing to our friends. I find it much more intertaining than the old one.

Congrats on mak'n it this far.

Happy Birthday!  I'm sorry to hear that you have to do the washing up!  Someone else should do it while you relax

Thanks MJ - but it wasn't so bad - Nick did all the cooking and preparing for yesterday. That's our deal he cooks and I clean. The bad thing was the amount of washing up 20 plates, 20 bread plates knives forkes glasses, bowls, serving dishes, etc
and you can't just use one lot of dishwater - so i filled emptied and refilled the sink 5 times after drying up and puting away.

But I was done before 10am and I haven't done anything since - I'm leaving all cleaning (laundry etc) until tomorrow. Today's a day of rest - I've even started my new book.
