The birthday that was!
Against ealier predictions, there were no tears on the day - it was quite lovely actually!
I woke up v early to get ready to go to a presentation thingo at Old Parliament House - The Hun caught me before I ducked out and gave me a card (we went shopping on the w/end and I made him go get one) and told me that my present should be arriving Thursday - I'm getting some awesome canal ear phone thingies which will be v handy for the O/S plane stuff and blocking out violent movie noises (as proven whilst The Hun watched Pans Labyrinth on Sunday night).
After the 90 minute presentation I checked my phone to find five missed calls, four voicemails and 2 messages - awwww. I got quite a few phone calls, emails and messages which was lovely (including an ecard from miss d'jen herself!) - including my parents calling me twice each to check in on how I was going.
The seafood lunch wan't that bad - however having two vodka's with just a pasta and thinly sliced veggies meal and some bits of fruit for breakfast (the OPH standard was bacon and eggs) was not the brightest of moments of mine. Neither was jokingly suggesting we should hang back a bit from the rest of the team for a cruiser in the back of the car on the drive home...
The Hun came home quite a bit earlier than usual which I put down to me telling him should, not that he was up to something. He started grilling me in the kitchen about if I was angry he hadn't actually got me anything, how I hadn't really gotten any gifts on the day and generally trying to rile me up (after my Feb breakdown when I got the sh!ts at the end of Valentines day) - I told him that I'd gotten a party hat from my boss (a hard hard with two drink holders and a straw - you know how it works) and a singlet, a travel diary from another co worker, a buddha token blessed by a monk in Thailand and two keyrings (my brothers had ordered stuff in for me that should be here soonish) so it wasn't like I hadn't gotten anything... he then told me that it was a shame that I wasn't angry enough and I'd taken all the fun out of his suprise - he'd bought me some flowers! I luuuurve getting flowers and he has a special secret florest he visits to get the for me - so very happy about that (I CAN be a real girl, see?!).
After almost 10 months as a vegan, we FINALLY made it out to Au Lac in Dickson - lovely! We had deepfried wanton and 'pork' buns for entree, and a combination hotpot and 'seafood' on crispy noodles for main. It was fantastic and I plan to go there as much as I can in future - so much so that my family are taking me again on Sunday for my birthday lunch!
We got home and there were more flowers on the stoop for me - gf1 had dropped them around (after unsucesfully trying to track my movements for the day - I was all over the place!) AND found we were outside without any house keys. (Un)luckily, The Hun worked out just how easy it is to break into our place - Hooray/Boo!
So, the day that was.
And you might notice that this a work hours update? I've got three days off work! Unfortunately, it's not all fun and games - I have to write a 2000 word report for uni due tmr night, I hafta go over my interview questions for my promotion tmr, I hafta pick up The Huns spiffy new suit, I hafta pick up my birthday shoes from magf, I hafta get more hepatitis needles today and I hafta write my maid of honour speech for the wedding on Saturday....Better get cracking!
Thanks for all the b'day wishes too - *hugs*
