I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter filled with love, laughter, happiness… and chocolate… or whatever 😉
Our weekend started off with a near-literal bang. My Significant Other’s car gave problems on Thursday, thus necessitating that (a) he take it in to be looked at, and (b) I work from home. Not the worst thing to happen… although we then found out they’d be ordering the new parts for his car after Easter weekend, and that the parts would only arrive on Thursday *huff*
But despite being carless for two days, a bit of family ‘drama’, borrowing my brother-in-law’s noisy little Golf from Saturday to Monday (and much, much more!), we managed to have a great weekend.
When it was just after midnight and ‘officially’ my birthday, Smudgy woke me up about 6 or 8 times. I think she was grumpy/frustrated that it was cold and wet outside and she didn’t know what to do about it since she obviously really wanted to be outside, but I’d like to think that she was being affectionate and excited about my birthday.
Here’s a basic rundown of my day: lemon & poppyseed muffin (sans candles, since my Significant Other couldn’t find any) plus a warm mug of tea in bed; a visit from my parentals and younger sister Addy, with gifts and a suprise; tea, cupcakes and gift opening; lunch at Ocean basket with my Significant Other, parentals and sis; curling up on the sofa under a blanket with my Significant Other and watching series; dinner at the Hildebrand (V&A Waterfront) – so fancy and romantic 😉
Exquisite orange roses from my Sweetheart
Lindt chocolate bunny! This little guy has been in the kitchen cupboard for a few weeks already
Pretty little forks to aid in the cosumption of treats
Smudgy was trying to escape/go outside when I snatched her up for a photo with her mommy
Addy baked birthday cupcakes! I had to assemble the stand myself - it was part of the 'fun'
Addy & the parentals baked me a super awesome Scooby-Doo birthday cake! 😀
All my gifts assembled on the livingroom table
Sushi for two: my Significant Other and I decided to share a Rising Sun sushi platter and added extra salmon roses & rainbow rolls. Mmm, sushi...
Such a happy couple! Ready to head out for dinner
Here Smudgy's more accepting of having her picture taken. She even struck a pose for the camera! Isn't she just the loveliest little thing?

PS: Did I mention that we went to watch THE HUNGER GAMES last night??! *happy dance*
