Thank you all so much for all my gifts and little goodies. I really enjoyed my birthday over here and for the first time in my life the sun was shining on the actual day. Normally having a May birthday in Melbourne means lots of windy weather and dried autumn leaves, but here in London I surprisingly sat in the park (sneezing because of Spring induced hay fever) in the sun and read a book. I had nothing else to do of course because Rick was at work. I did however get to open my gifts. So thank you, you made my birthday really special. Rick took me out for a yummy Italian dinner then surprised me with a cake and proceeded to serenade me by singing Happy Birthday. All in all a great day but obviously I wish I could have been closer to you guys back home. Next year I will be I promise!
