Well today is an extra special day indeed! Its my mums 54th Birthday and my good friend and next door neighbour Mele's 33rd Birthday!
So today I took my mum out shopping to Charlestown Square all day! It was wonderful! We shopped until we dropped and shock horror even Cooper behaved! I got myself an outfit (A pair of black pinstriped pants, and a black top) fpr our Cronulla Bash in a few weeks time as well as a new pair of PJ's from Bra's and things! Very happy with that, and not to mention a special pressie for a special friend. I excelled at shopping today it was great!
Once home, I ducked over and saw Mele, gave her her pressie, a kiss and a cuddle, a quick chat then I was off again! This time we were (Grant, Trav, Coop, Dad & I) taking Mum out to dinner at Biondi's at Raymond Terrace (Italian)! Oh man that food is sooooo good! I had a small pasta so I could fit in the Berry Crepes for dessert! I really could of skipped the main and went straight for dessert! So many nice ones to choose from! Though sorry to say, I didn't take the camera so I have no pics! Shame Shame Shame!
