Today is my Mums birthday - happy birthday to you. Mum slept in and relaxed for the day. She met up with some friends for dinner which was a nice evening. Good company, delicious food, birthday cake and a bottle of wine made mum feel better about being a year older. Mum had roasted lamb with beetroot and a mint pesto with beans and roasted garlic potatoes. It was at a nice restaurant that was recently voted in the top 10 in NZ - so a great birthday treat.
It is now raining and turning colder. Mum has got home and will put the heaters on to warm us up. She has leftover cake - but is too full tonight to eat anything further.
