The Pampered Birthday Girl

Did you ever have one of those birthdays where you felt like the most spoiled pampered person on earth?

Last weekend was one of those birthdays for me. Friday afternoon they had a sumptuous chocolate cake for me at the office. Friday night my sweetheart took me out for a lovely, elegant dinner and then to Bergo Designs, a wonderful store in Toronto's Distillery District, where he bought me not one, not two, but three - count 'em - three Reac Japan designer chairs. It wasn't easy to choose, but I finally settled on these three. I am planning to make a modern condo for them. (That's what I need, another project.)


































































Saturday, I had my favourite hairdresser remove the gray from my hair - how it gets there I can't figure out - then met my daughter downtown for a wonderful dinner where she surprised me with tickets to the stage version of "The Sound of Music" What a great show. I enjoyed it thoroughly, even though my daughter told me that the people in the audience didn't come to hear me sing along so I should stop.




















Sunday morning my son took me out to an incredible Sunday brunch - it was sooooo good, custom omelets, waffles, fruit, way more good food than I could eat - and after he cut my lawn without being asked. Then he took me to see Inglourious Basterds. I really enjoyed it, even if I had to cover my eyes during the really gory parts. (I am my own censor board). It was a great movie. Kind of like a comic book, I thought. Brad Pitt is hilarious in his role.



When I got home settled down in front of the TV with the bottle of wine my son brought me and watched old movies on TCM.

What a perfect birthday weekend. It's a shock to go to work today and not be pampered. Oh well, I only have to wait another 363 days for the next time.
