In case you missed the memo, birthday MONTHS are the new birthdays and this month I set out to fully take advantage of this celebratory trend with a month of unashamed self-indulgence.
This year my birthday fell over Easter weekend, which meant the whole of Easter was all about me too… PERFECT!!! Easter Friday I enjoyed a day of indulgence, surrounded by my family, eating yummy hot cross buns, and with absolutely no emails. One day felt like an entire weekend.
As the old saying goes, there’s no pleasure without pain so I had an early start Easter Saturday, hitting the office from 7am to midday to catch up on all that missed correspondence from Friday!
Easter Sunday started off work-y with our weekly judging session on The Block, then Neale, Darren and I decamped to Café Di Stasio for a couple of birthday drinks where we met my husband, then on to dinner at Ichi Ni with a few more friends to add to the festivities, and amazing St Kilda institution, where we had a slap up sushi feast.
Easter Monday I squeezed a bit more work into the morning before heading off to a wedding to round off a somewhat hectic (but let’s be honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way) start to a memorable birthday month.
