Birthday surprises

So yesterday was my birthday - and it ended up being a really nice day, even if I did have to work! I was serenaded by the office (and blushed a lot), and treated to a yummy flourless orange cake, plus had so many messages and calls from friends, it was so nice. In the evening, the BF and I went out for a low key dinner and to see the movie "The Legend of the Guardians", which was super cute.

The big surprise on Friday night was dinner at Little Press, and a trip to the Arts Centre to see this awesome ballet called "Come, Been and Gone", which was to the music of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, The Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk.

He's such a good listener - I had been flicking through the program for the Melbourne Festival a little while ago and lamenting that I couldn't afford tickets to the ballet. Good work :) I also was given a beautiful pair of earrings from Samantha Wills, so am feeling very lucky and spoiled.

The only downside has been the past few days I have been feeling sick on and off. Nausea, dizziness, sore upper back, upset stomach, grr. It's not consistant though, so I don't know if it's this stomach bug that's going around or what. Of course my biggest paranoia is always "what if I'm pregnant?", but considering I get sick pretty easily, plus have stomach issues anyway, I'm sure that really is me being paranoid.

Off to acupuncture tonight - which I love, as it's so relaxing! Ohhh, just looked out the window and it's grey/black as far as the eye can see - what happened to yesterday's sunshine?

Oh and I found a dress for the wedding! It's a gorgeous, drapey, black & white abstract print, silk satin dress by Charlie Brown. It's the perfect weight and style, so I was so excited to find it my first shopping expedition for the event. Hurrah!
