Getting Older

I still love having a birthday, but I'm not quite so keen on getting older each year. It turned out to be a pretty good day, despite some not-so-sunny weather.

It started with a little pressie snuck out to the kitchen during the night.

Then I had a whole class of year 9 students sing 'happy birthday' to me.

The first of my ranunculus finally bloomed.

And I finished off the day with dinner with friends, and a very yummy croquembouche made by a friend.

Only three days of school to go!
