I have been a little 'tardy' this last week in tending to my BLOG ... but it has been rather a big week ..
On Wednesday 7th November,
MY BIRTHDAY !!!
I spent the morning home with hubby and then in the afternoon our daughter, Krystal took me out for lunch and a bit of retail therapy in CHAPEL STREET ... and a wonderful lunch at one of my FAV places, The ORIENTAL TEAHOUSE .... then home to a wonderful informal dinner with family & friends organised by hubby and our son, Daniel.
I was VERY, VERY SPOILT ..... I received a gift that has been on my 'wish list' for quite some time ..
and .. later this month I am off to see the last movie in the "TWILIGHT " SERIES at "Gold Class" with our daughter .....
and ............... yesterday here in Melbourne it was "OAKS DAY" (Ladies Day) at FLEMINGTON RACE COURSE ... as part of the Spring Racing Carnival ...
I have been living in Melbourne now for 23 years and this was the very first time I have been to the races ... hubby and I had a wonderful day .. and the best part was ..
