Fay's 40th Birthday

It's not every day you turn 40, so to honour this milestone George organised a long weekend in Far North Queensland. We were joined by Katie, Dan and Hugo, The Curtis' The Sharratts, Nick and Beth, Peter and Denise and Clairey, G, Sophie and Baby Ben. This was my first chance to meet my new nephew, who was already 2 months old. We had apartments in a hotel complex on Trinity Beach, with a huge swimming pool overlooking the ocean. The birthday celebrations were on a tight schedule - spa day with the ladies followed by afternoon tea, dinner out at Blue Moon Grill, a tapas night with a onesie dress code, oh and a sky dive. From 15,000 ft. With a 60 second freefall.  

Back in Sydney, George and I took the day off for my actual birthday, on a Wednesday. We had a delicious lunch at Catalina's overlooking Rose Bay, then took the ferry into the city for more drinks at the Ivy and Ryan's Bar. We were having so much fun we almost forgot to pick up the girls from after school care! The day was finished off with dinner at the little joint in Bondi. A rather good birthday week!

The onsie theme was kept secret from me, and when I opened the door to our apartment I was greeted by this. Just Brilliant.

It wouldn't be a birthday celebration without a SingStar session. After a few drinks out with friends from Bondi School we ended up back at ours belting out our favourites until the early hours.
