Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Another happy birthday event

Last night we finally had the official birthday dinner for myself and Ben, at Cafe Platia, Burke Road, Camberwell. We had a banquet, and there was so much food to eat we certainly felt we got our money's worth - the food was divine, the atmosphere wonderful, and the company second-to-none. All-in-all it was a fantastic night out. Fraze surpassed himself and brought a caramel cheesecake with birthday candles for us - it was the perfect end to a great evening. We then had an unexpected bonus, as we drove back to Croydon to stay at a friend's house for another chat ... unfortunately, though, I'm working today so not overly thrilled having to drive an hour home to just have a shower and drive halfway back again - but it was nice to be able to catch up for a bit longer. Have to admit to having a sore head today, but more from the lack of sleep than over-excessive alcohol (although there was definitely more than 1 or 2 glasses imbibed haha).

Unfortunately, not everyone is in the photo - Fraze, Dawn, and Gavin are missing.

So, just a very quick post, as I need to jump into the shower and wake myself up ... thankfully today is the last day of 7 working days, and I get Mon/Tue off this week before I get to play on the Hotline again for another two weeks yippee :) Considering I only got a few hours sleep last night, I'll need no extra rocking to sleep tonight! LOL. At least I get two days to play with a needle for a change, seeing I haven't seen one much just lately!

What a great birthday bash you had with your friends! And I agree with Isabelle, you looked smashing in your little black dress. :) You definitely deserved to have such a wonderful time and I'm glad you really lived it up. I hope that your shift went smoothly and that you get lots of stitching and relaxing done on your days off!
