Another birthday rolls by

As you might have guessed, I have a lot of overdue posts and pictures to share. Here are some images from my birthday which I celebrated in November... Presents received: 1. Latest Steven Curtis Chapman album (from myself to me)


2. Earrings (from colleagues)


3. Jewelry Box (from hubs - he tricked me with a 'small version' of the present and only gave me one of the sections/compartments from the whole set, then later on he surprised me with the 'full version')


For dinner, we went to 'Essex' in Fremantle and hubby was blown away by the meal. Hubs is rarely extravagant in his praise of western food (or any restaurant food for that matter), but upon tasting the food, he used words I never even knew he had in his vocabulary to describe the food... Entrée: five spice seared scallops with crispy pork belly with a warm salad of shitake mushroom and beansprouts - we liked this especially, the scallops were cooked to perfection and the pork belly was nice and crispy and the shitake mushrooms were just yummy!


Main: hubby's was fillet of beef filled with local scallops, grilled and topped with garlic cream and served with potato mash, mine was essentially the fish of the day, but it was some special fish from bunbury (can't remember the name) served with pumpkin and a light salad... very nice indeed.


Dessert: selection of Icky Sticky pudding enriched with butterscotch sauce, crème brulee, key lime tart, strawberries and cream, and a berry parfait


Thanks also for the phonecalls, birthday cards and numerous Facebook messages!!! I feel so surrounded by love.
