B-Day

Sunday, January 29, 2012 28 Comments A+ a-

Last Thursday I turned 28! Eeep! My Birthday also falls on Australia Day, so it's a day everyone enjoys as it is a public holiday here in Oz. I had a lovely day relaxing with my hubby and family. I got so many wonderful gifts from amazon jp and Uguisu (my hubby knows me well!) and ate yummy Pavlova off my new Cath Kidston polka dot plates that came all the way from the UK.
The wonderful team at work got me this chocolate sponge and mousse puppy Birthday cake from my fave Asian bakery Breadtop. Woof! Woof! Thanks guys!
Finally got some mt wrap!Flicking through a Sophie Daul cookbook, mt e-mook, Cookieboy's amazing new book (I will show you some inside snaps in the next post) and 'Decorating and storing photographs' collage book.
How cute is this packaging from Uguisu?
One of my fave gifts! It's Tumble Girl! she is sooo cute. I like moving her around the house as she makes me smile and brightens up any room. If you move or bump her she plays sweet music too. Here she is admiring my Japanese book collection.
