Happy birthday to me!

So it's my birthday today and has so far been spent in the doctors waiting room with a snotty, sick baby! Why do they even bother giving you an appointment time?!?!

Anyway, I had a great birthday weekend that involved some birthday drinks with friends and babies then we sent all the men home with the kids and had some girls cocktails! Hmmm - those French Matrini's were delish! Yesterday there was a party with Bubbles the Magician, bouncy castle and lots of cake! I should clarify that it wasn't for me but for my beautiful little neighbour who turned 3! The afternoon was spent on my couch with some books. As many of you will know, I'm a bit of a bookworm so a Sunday on the couch while the boys are outside in the garden is my idea of heaven! I finished One Day by David Nicholls for my book group and really enjoyed it then had a flick though some birthday books - How to Bake a Business and Handmade in Melbourne - thanks C! My boys got me a a beautiful bunch of flowers and a Kobo eReader. I do love having books displayed on my bookshelf and will still buy some 'real' books but I love the convenience of the eReader. Plus, it came with 100 free books! A lot are classics that I've just never gotten round to reading so now I've no excuse! Bring on War and Peace! Although if I ever actually finish it I'll be buying a copy for my bookshelf as a little trophy!

The rest of the day involved (lots of) birthday chocolate tart and the MasterChef grand finale! Bliss!

How was your weekend?
