Birthday Week

Hi All,

Thanks for all your comments - I really appreciate it. Have had a MASSIVE Week! GB had organised lunch for me on friday so I came home and had decided to take the afternoon off work so we could enjoy a vino with lunch. GB asked me to go upstairs and grab the camera and as I got upstairs I noticed on the bed a red rose, a note and a bag. The note said I had 10mins to pack for 3 nights and it was the beginning of my birthday weekend! So I quickly  packed and we got in the car with Westie and headed south. I tried to guess where we were going but GB wouldn't say. We finally ended up at some chalets just out of Pemberton (about 4.5hrs from Perth). We stopped at the office and GB went and spoke to the owner and hopped back in the car and said we were in Chalet 1. As we got there I said - "this can't be ours, there's someone's car already there. Chalet 1 must be at the other end". Then I looked properly at the car and realised it belonged to one of our friends, who poked her head out of the door at that minute! Turns out GB had organised a weekend away with all our friends! Slowly people started showing up including my sisters till there was 15 of us! He had  booked out all 4 chalets so we had the place to ourselves. It was fantastic. We basically had a 3 day party, hanging out, playing games, going to wineries. GB had organised all the food and everything! You can see some photos on my flickr album to the right.

So food wise I was actually pretty good - not eating too much. But I did drink my body weight in champagne. On Friday morning I weighed myself and was already 1kg down from Wednesday's weigh in. Yesterday I weighed myself and had only put on 500g so still 500g down for the week. Not too bad. I didn't weigh in this morning though. We went to Gold Class movies to see Indiana Jones yesterday and pigged out on more champers, wedges, cheese and an icecream sundae! THen went out for dinner! Back into the healthy stuff today though!

All in all, have had a terrific birthday week - I'm completely rooted today though. Poor GB is still struggling with his back. The chiro doesn't seem to be working so he went to the doc today and is going for xrays. Poor love.

Anyhoo, best get back to work!

Hope everyone else is going well.

Em :)


  1. What a great way to celebrate your birthday. You are so lucky Em - GB is awesome. I hope his back is on the mend - he must be going nuts! Myf

  2. You must have had a great birthday ! You deserve only the best and looks like GB is making sure that happens. I gotta admit I am in love with Westie !, I love how important he is in your life, a lucky wee man he is !
    love to all !

  3. Westie is a girl dog! But yes quite doted on, and I truly believe GB think she's his daughter! But yep birthday was truly one of the best.

  4. A belated happy birthday to you!

    That sounds like a great birthday surprise. Rest assured I will probably steal it shamelessly on my wife's next birthday.

    The South-west is awesome. We spent two weeks at a chalet in Balingup, and it was just brilliant.
