Turning 48 wasn’t too shabby after all!
I had some lieu time up my sleeve from work, so I ducked up to DD’s neck of the woods for a few hours by the beach yesterday.
DD was offering fancy brekkie options, but I just wanted a BLT at a little outdoor cafe beside the sand in Bilgola.
Fortunately the rain held off as we sat looking out at the sea.
He’s had a Topsy Turvy Land few weeks himself, so we gave ourselves a caffeine boost by chugging back two flat whites each.
I’m really getting into this coffee thing he’s hooked me on. I even ordered a macchiato at lunch earlier this week and felt SO grown up.
I was intent on a swim after brekkie, but DD didn’t think the surf was up to scratch at Bilgola, so we headed to Avalon for a dip instead.
Appropriately for St Patrick’s Day, the water was FULL of green seaweed. But I enjoyed my splash anyway.
Then it was back to the grindstone at work before dropping over to my sister’s pad for schnitzel, champagne, cake and spa time.
Love me a bit of spa time, especially if it involves French champagne (thank you DD’s mum!).
Here are some happy snaps …
