my birthday dawned bright, still and hot!
and in came my family,
singing with a bright,
hot cake which looked alarmingly
like it could set the world on fire!
how is it that i am 41 already?
we headed down to our shark-infested beach upon hearing the nets were up - much jubilation as the kids were able to swim out far and enjoy some fabulous bodysurfing.
The afternoon was spent chatting (and skyping my sis) and generally lolling in a carb coma after we all indulged in my moms spectacular mac n cheese followed by a monumental trifle - my all-time favorite meal and dessert!
Evening was rounded out by a swim and a sunset walk around our estate. A superb day to remember.
