Monday at Bondi ...
:: Lily got back last night for almost two weeks of her spring break from college - it's such a shame that Will's spring break isn't until next month. Anyway, as soon as Will got home from school this arvo, the three of us hotfooted it down the 5 to see Dave at the Bondi. Incidentally, we reckon the photo above, taken by Brad, one of our lovely waiters, is probably the best that's ever been taken of the four of us all together!
Will had to take some more food pics (for something that's going in the Union Tribune this week), so Lily and I sat in a trap and had a cup of REAL coffee and a very late lunch.
:: This (above) is our coffee window, opening on to the porch. Perfect for a warm afternoon, or a sunny morning.
:: This (above) is my official birthday portrait! I never thought I'd ever be as old as 53. Dave's looking smug because he's still only 52 - he's got three weeks to enjoy the feeling.
:: Great news about Ben Cousins! Perth must be so proud! And what wonderful news about Chad Fletcher's holiday in Las Vegas! Marvellous! We had a little toast to the glorious, dignified Eagles this evening, during my birthday dinner (we left it until today because Lily didn't make it home in time yesterday).
:: I got the sweetest, cutest, tiny apple-green iPod shuffle for my birthday. I love it SO much! It holds 240 songs - hard to believe from something so light and so minuscule.
I'm having lots of fun with MP3s at the moment - my car has a six-CD player that will play MP3s, and I've made a CD of 110 songs from the 'A to L' section of all the music (1500 pieces) I've collected on my computer. So when I'm driving, I just whack this CD in, click on 'shuffle' and always hear something I love. I have to make one from the 'M to Z' part of the list now.
:: Dave's off to Santa Monica again tomorrow, so I'm going up to LA with him. While he's at his meeting, I'm spending a few hours at the LA County Museum of Art - yum. I'll report on it all later ...
