Baby it’s cold outside

Yippee do everyone!  It’s another Monday in 2014, but there are only two Monday’s left in this year (including today).

I finished work for Christmas on Friday (19th).  I’m not back in until next year (2nd Jan), and I’m really grateful for the break.  That sounds kind of funny, considering I have actually had two and a half weeks off work sick…  At least this way work doesn’t have to “check up on me” every day.  This is my time.

Yesterday was my 34th birthday.  I celebrated it by doing nothing all day, unless you count playing “Worms Battleground” on the xbox one.  Later on, we all showered, then went to Frankie & Benny’s with my mum and dad.  To say that I was stuffed by the end of the night was an understatement!!

We had cheesy garlic pizza as an “appertif”, then mum, hubby, Gningy and I had a (REALLY LARGE) sharing platter as a starter…  My dad had garlic mushrooms (I think).  For the main courses, I had spaghetti and meatballs, hubby had spaghetti carbonara, Gningy had fish fingers, mum had salmon pasta in a creamy sauce, and dad had BBQ’d ribs.  To say the meals were absolutely scrummy was an understatement.  However, there was still the cake to come…

The lights were dimmed in the restaurant, the music suddenly got louder, and happy birthday was sung to me from around the restaurant.  It’s the same with every birthday in F&B’s.  The waitress placed the cream sponge cake, that my mum had bought, in front of me.  I was told to make a wish, then blow out the candles…

I cut the cake, and gave hubby, Gningy, mum and dad a slice.  There was no way I was going to eat it.  Not after all I had eaten already, and not long being over the pregnancy sickness…

All of a sudden, hubby pulled a face.  “That’s off”, he said.  Dad agreed.

The cream cake that was bought on Friday was “off”.  I’m glad I didn’t want any…

So, happy birthday to me.  Overall it was a great day.  Shame about the cake though 🙂

Any thoughts?
