Went to football then bought some diesel trainers from Paddington as an early birthday present to myself! Rang Keith to see if he wanted tickets to the rugby world cup game in Melbourne then did loads of exercise. Spoke to Mam and Dad then got into bed early to watch a Knights Tale which to my surprise was brilliant!
Got into work on Monday morning and managed to get tickets to the England v Samoa game!! Discovered a place called Sumo–salad it does the best salads ever!! Went to the cheap Tuesday cinema with Thien to watch ‘View from the top’ with Gwyneth Paltrow it was quite good! Went shopping to Braodway with Kerrie on Thursday night to buy all the food for my birthday, I’m sure there isn’t enough but Kerrie assures me there is!!! Matt, Simon’s friend from NZ arrived to stay?!?
I’ve had flat to myself for a couple of weeks and would definitely live on my own now!!! Took Friday 22 off work, went to the fish markets and then medicare, went to enquire about joining Fitness First then met Becca for lunch. Let myself into Kerries and started making the food! Kerrie got back in from work and helped, at 3am we packed in and went to stay at mine, Lee didn’t make it in before we left!
Got up early on Saturday, washed my hair and Kerrie dried it for me, got a taxi to Grace Brothers for my nails manicured, then went to Mac for my make up done. Walked back to Kerries and helped finish off the food and pack it up. Managed to acquire 2 bread crates from Studio 4 café which made things a bit easier!
Got the taxi with Kerrie, Lee and Damian to the Botanical Gardens and just as we were getting out it started to rain – typical!!! Put everything under a huge tree and played footie while we waited for everyone to arrive.
Kerrie, Lee, Damian, Tamsin, Brad, Lou, Rebecca, Jonno, Rachel, Colin, Seth, Greg, Richard, Jmes, Julie, Robyn, Katie, Paul, Lorna, Jen, Chris, Chris, Mel, Stuart, Roger, Adrienne and Me!!! I was really pleased that everybody turned up, especially as it was raining!!
Had a brilliant afternoon talking to everyone, the food went down really well, we had: homemade pizzas, quiches, sandwiches, filo pastries, sausage rolls, spring rolls, crudités, dips, brochettes, tandori chicken, things on sticks and crisps etc, plus a huge chocolate cake and several bottles of pre-made cocktails!! I also got loads of really nice presents so thank you to everyone for such a great Birthday!!!!!
As it was getting dark we packed everything up and walked through Hyde Park in the pouring rain to catch a taxi. Took everything back to Kerries mixed what was left of the cocktails into one big glass and downed it! took the bread crates back, Matt came to collect his things, then I caught the bus with Lee and Damian to The Rocks. Met up in the Orient and downed more birthday drinks. Lou and Me climbed up on the market stall so Lee and Brad tried to sell us to any passer by (leaving the explanation of the photo at that!!!) went to an Irish pub cant remember the name and met everyone else who had gone straight from the Botanical Gardens. Got a mini bus taxi to MacDonalds where Lee gave Ronald a load of abuse for frisking with Kerrie!! Then went on to PJOBs but the queue was huge and I couldn’t see Thomas on the door to jump it so we went to Slip Inn. The boys went home and the girls stayed out, went back and stayed at Kerries.
