Hello! Sorry for being so damn scarce on the posting front. My back has seemed a little better in the last 2 months, and I've been trying to make up for a year (yes! a full year!) of doing what has seemed like nothingness. And of course, overdoing it, as I'm prone to doing, and then needing lots of resting time. So the last 6 weeks or so have been a rollercoaster ride of DOING! MUCH! THINGS! and doing. nothing. Yes.
So, thankfully, in the midst of all the craziness, I got to spend a beautiful afternoon with Sonia celebrating her 29th birthday. And it was a much needed oasis in an overwhelming period of busyness, and plus, we got to eat cake. Oh and nachos. What's not to like?
What was supposed to be an intimate lunch turned into a lazy afternoon spent chatting and smiling over incredibly good Mexican food, a decadent cake (where her father got the number of candles RIGHT!) and strolls around St Kilda.
My favourite part was when Sonia got all bratty. Sonia is possibly the most easy going person in the world, so when she DEMANDS we order way too much food and sangria, by god, it's going to happen, because it's her birthday. And when she wants to cut the cake her way, because goddamit, it's her birthday, no one stands in her way.
The nicest thing though, was seeing Sonia so happy. Surrounded by the 2 favourite men in her life, and being fed and cared for. There was also some smugness on her part at still being in her twenties, but she'll learn. It's only a year before she joins the ranks of us old thirty year olds, and that smugness will turn into fine lines and crepey skin she never knew she would have. Who, me? Bitter? NO WAY.
Enjoy it while you can, Sonia!
