The best thing about having a birthday on Christmas Eve is my family take the whole day and don’t talk about Christmas (until the 3 kids tucked themselves into beds placed under the Christmas tree). This year i had a french themed birthday! Started with a slow coffee in bed, handmade cards and poetry, wonderfully thoughtful gifts and a grand breakfast for all five of us in bed: croissants and jam from France, the Eiffel Tower made out of grapes and toothpicks (complete with hand drawn French flag on top) and French Toast.
Then i got to enjoy watching the Kookaburra Queen Paddle Steamer glide up the Brisbane River whilst BBQing at Kangaroo Point. See my new vintage locket embellished with a 1973 stamp from Poland, love, love, love it!
A birthday package was at the front door when i arrived home, thanks so much friends for making my day special then family dropped over with a handmade card (made from a vintage Paris postcard), a Paris necklace and some lovely soaps i am keen to try. Feel loved!
Wore my little red dress out to dinner at Ahmets on Oxford Street, tried lots of new Turkish food, so lovely to look across the table at my smiling family! Love you all, you make my soul full!
