My Birthday


What can be nicer than waking up on your Birthday morning? The one day of the year that you can have a lie-in, breakfast in bed, fun unwrapping your presents in a calm and relaxing atmosphere, maybe even a warm, deep bubble bath to start the day off nicely...

Dream on Gina!

I woke up this morning to the sound of my bedside alarm at 6.30am.
We had an hour before we needed to pack 4 adults and three kids in full Rugby gear into the car, along with a picnic bag with flasks of coffee, suncream, umbrellas, (Unpredictable weather here at the moment!)hats, coats, rugby balls etc, etc, etc.

What more could I ask for! Byron did manage to get me a cup of tea to drink in bed. The kids were woken up and piled into our bedroom. Presents were handed to me and I was actively discouraged from spending too long "guessing" what the contents were! There was a frantic unwrapping frenzy and phone calls from Mum, Dad and Carrie before we were all in the car driving to Maitland to the a Rugby Gala Day.

Our friends John and Maree were there with their boys Harry and Tom and David brought Isaac. Anne and Kel met us there to watch the kids playing. It was a fun day. I didn't pay much attention to the exact scores of each match much to Byrons disgust.

My motto is

"Its not all about who wins"

Byrons is

"It's all about who wins"

Say no more!

After the matches were finished and we were packing up the car John and Maree unpacked a chilled bottle of bubbly and glasses from their boot so that we could have a toast! It was a really nice gesture and topped the morning off perfectly!

We drove to a town called Dungog for lunch. It is in the middle of nowhere and had one really wide main street.

We half expected to see a ball of tumble weed blowing down the street like in the Wild west films! It was so quiet and we found a cafe to eat in and had the choice of any table. Having agreed that we had caught Dungog on a quiet day we jumped back in the car and headed home.

It was a very different Birthday but an enjoyable one all the same.
