It was my birthday on Monday – I turned 29. As usual, I managed to stretch the birthday out over a few days. I had a BBQ on Saturday evening, yum cha on Sunday and a day off on Monday.
The BBQ was a joint birthday party and housewarming party. We had about 30 guests and I thought that the party was very successful. I was pleased with the reaction to my Tasty Chicken, I will add it to my BBQ repertoire. As I have lost my camera I have not any photos, but I will post others’ photos as they send them to me. A highlight of the party was of course that some people brought presents, and Michelle brought my favourite lemon butter cake.
Sunday’s yum cha was a family affair with my brothers and sister, all three parents and Kirsten. We went to a Chinese seafood restaurant in Castle Towers – I was a bit dubious about this but it turned out to be very good, in many ways better than the usual chinatown experience. I received presents during lunch.
The plan for my actual birthday was to go to Wonderland, as Kirsten has never been to a theme park. This plan was soon abandoned as temperatures rose to 40 degrees. I spent most of the day in front of the air conditioner in the lounge room, playing xbox, watching TV and sleeping.
