Now where did that year go, it doesn’t seem that long ago when I blogged about my daughters 20th birthday………….(and that cake) she is turning 21 on Tuesday, my baby, my youngest, my last…..sob! I drove her and her two closest friends into the city yesterday and dropped them off at ‘Crown Promenade Hotel‘ at Crown Casino. I am picking them up on Tuesday, she is a lucky, lucky girl, her dad and nanna are paying for them to stay there. I told her not to drink or eat anything out of the mini bar (sooooo expensive) as the money is coming out of my credit card and I cannot afford it.
A lot of her friends caught up with her at a night club in the city last night (Saturday) and through Facebook this morning I read she had a wonderful night and behaved herself (no hangover, yay)
Family and close friends are going out for dinner on Tuesday night, am really looking forward to the night, no cooking and lots of chatting.
I have a few birthdays this November, my friend is turning 50, and another friends son is turning 21, a nice few social gatherings to look forward to.
I was called in to work on Friday afternoon (after I got my hair cut and colored…long overdue) but first I met them all for lunch at a lovely Thai restaurant, as we were celebrating three birthdays last week. I am so grateful for this job, the people are so nice. I am quite shy and hate entering a venue on my own (confidence is not my strongest point) and most times I will not go out because it actually makes me feel physically sick. However I pushed myself to go and was greeted very warmly by everyone. In the past I have had horrid experiences where I have been totally ignored all night, it didn’t do anything for my self-esteem or confidence and has put me off going anywhere basically, unless I feel really comfortable where I am going and the people I am going with/meeting.
I am slowly getting on with my ripple, a few more rows have been added, it is slow going at the moment with work, however my busy time is over so should have more time now.
I rebooked my hair for 8 weeks time, three days before Christmas, oh yikes only 8 weeks to go!!!! Seriously where has this year gone.
Hope your weekend has been an enjoyable one and the week ahead is easy.
