happy birthday to me...

happy birthday to me, happy birthday to get the picture :)

yes, I turn another day older today (and celebrated by putting on several kilos, according to those wretched scales. They lie, I tell you. LIE!!)

Anyway, because I fully believe no one should have to work on their birthday (and yeah, blogging isn't really work, but same principal), here's some pics instead.

Large gum trees have a habit of dropping branches--so if you ever hear a gum creaking, get the heck away from it. It's about to drop something on your head. This one fell on a perfectly fine day--no wind at all. Mind you, most of the old trees in Melbourne are severely stressed right now because of the drought. And thanks to water restrictions, there's not a whole lot anyone can do to save them. Except hope for the rain they keep saying is eventually coming.

another angle of the branch :)

the view out the window from my office chair. You can't see it in this pic, but I actually have a little bird bath near the lavender, and I can sit here and watch all the birds come in for a swim. On a hot day (which we've had plenty of) it can get rather crowded.

This was taken at the Crown Casino during Chinese New Years. I just loved the colors in it :)

Happy birthday Keri! *throws confetti and brings the male stripper*

Wow! You have an awesome view from your office. I'm green with envy! Heh! All I have is the wall of my next door neighbor's house. Ugh!

Happy Birthday Keri. Hope you have a lovely day. And yes, those scales absolutely do lie. That is one gorgeous view from your home office.

thanks for the birthday wishes! It's been a most excellent birthday week, with all the parties and good news :)

and yeah, the view out my office is amazing--and one of the reasons I fell in love with the house. My last office had a view of a wall--very exciting. Not.
