... birthday we lay pretty low. Went for a nice big walk and called into one of our new favourite places - Patisserie Madeleine, a deliciously amazing French bakery. We did a nice big sushi dinner that night and that was that!

That entire week, the festivities continued. We all went out for a celebratory lunch and the girls got me a giant cookie type cake thing (seeing as we had had five other birthdays in the last two months, it was a nice change!) Then ...

I do promise that there are more to come (which is to say, I promise to at least feel bad for not posting pictures, and then think about doing it for a long time before forgetting again).
