Thank you Vailina for sharing your Diwali activities with us. They are so good.
I had a great birthday on Sunday and the special times lasted all weekend. Saturday morning I received a parcel on my fence post. It was my favourite pie and a coffee from the Bakery. That was a lovely surprise.
Then on Saturday night a few friends and I watched Thunder Force on a Google Meet. That was interesting but it was great to see my friends after such a long time apart. A funny movie too.
On Sunday, Savana ordered some Dunkin Donuts, the maple and glazed are my favourite. lol. That was lovely.
Then my brother and his wife came over and we sat on the deck, 2 metres apart and chatted. She had made me a yummy orange chic chip cake and some yummy chococlate slice.
Then we finished the weekend with Dominos and movies. I definitely had too much sugar and too much food that isn't healthy, but isn't that why we have a birthday so we can get spoiled and be a bit naughty.
Here are a few pictures of our fur babies and fish during the holiday. As you can see they were very lazy.
Sisilia helps around the house and likes to cook toasted sandwiches for her siblings. Way to go Sisilia. You are very helpful.
