My darling husband, Scott, turned twenty-six last week. Here are some photos of how we celebrated the day...
His birthday started off with made-from-scratch pancakes with strawberries drizzled with golden syrup.
I was on holidays from work last week, so while Scott was at work, I baked his favourite - banana muffins. I had bought these "happy birthday" candles from the two dollar shop a few days earlier and they were the perfect finish !
I let him choose where he would like to go out for dinner for his birthday and he said he wanted to go to the same place we celebrated our engagement - The Cyprus Club in Stanmore. Usually this place is full of life, packed with lots of people, and with live music..... but as we went on a Thursday night - it was a little bit different, and definitely not what we expected. We walked into an almost empty room, filled with about a dozen pensioners. It was "ten-dollar dinner and raffle night".We were the only people under the age of sixty for sure. It was a bit awkward, we didn't know if we should laugh or cry - we couldn't just leave as all of the 15 people there saw us walk in.... So in we went, had a really cheap dinner, which might I add was a huge serving.... and tried our luck at the raffle. Unfortunately, ten dollars worth of raffle wasn't enough to win us any prizes but we did have a fabulous time. All in all Scott's b-day dinner cost $35 including dinner, raffles and drinks. Bargain.
Happy Birthday my love.
