This week it was my birthday.  I didn’t really know how I was going to feel celebrating away from most of my family and friends, but I had Rohan here, and Pattie and Conrad, and my new friends from work.  So it was ok.

It was two days of celebrations, my Australian birthday on Monday and my Canadian birthday on Tuesday.  I was a bit confused, but I guess technically I could start requesting special attention from 11:14 am on Monday morning here.  That’s when the official twenty-seven rolled over.  I stretched it out for the 2 days anyway though.

So the events went as follows… skype with Dad, Mum, Granny and Daryl, sorbet cocktails at my place, 80’s theme night at Tommys, sweetest birthday gift from Rohan, mochas with cream, cookies, surprise gift from Victoria, horse riding with Patricia, massage, pedicure on Patricia’s patio, dinner with Rohan at Milestones, hot tub, cake, skype with Brenda, Bella and family (they had party hats and everything!) then bed.  Did I mention spoilt 🙂

I was mostly happy, but felt the emotion a few times when I thought about missing my family.  Skype helps.  But it’s still not the real thing.  I miss my family everyday but I missed them more when they were all together on my computer screen looking at me.  I just want a hug, that is all.  I’m even getting emotional now just thinking about it.

So the house is quiet now and its all back to normal.  Thank you all for the birthday well wishes.  I means so much when your on the other side of the earth.  Much love. xx
