Starting from the 9th February next month I will be having 6 days off, apparently to our General manager he wants all of us to use up our day-in-lieu having worked so many from Christmas to Australia Day. Because I have so many days off and it happens around my 28th birthday time period, mum has decided we should have a mother-daughter mini trip to our Nations capital.
It does sound like quite a good trip to Canberra because last time we were down there I was 14 and it was a stopover on the way down to the Snowy alps. The city itself has various amazing places to go see and not just the government being located there. The only downside of this is that observatory night viewing does not start until March bugger!
We are still going to drive there, it will be a nice break before everything gets all busy again at work, though starting yesterday all the regulars returned and conferences have started up once more. So it begins 😛
On Friday 15th August, my grandma on dad’s side; the Matriarch of the Moscoso clan turned 90! She is literally 10 years away from being 100 :O A mother, grandma, great-grandma of many talents, compassion and love for her ever growing family. She has been by all our sides and given us all her special touch and devotion plus experience with the world. Despite her arthritis in her hip on her birthday she didn’t let it spoil her night yesterday with the family visiting her apartment. Because of my 9 days off I was quite fortunate to go there myself and spend time with the relatives.
Happy birthday again Mama <33
My birthday has arrived and I’ll be putting in two posts one for the real world and one for the virtual world because in both I have been treated like a spoiled princess and forever thankful to the friends and family who have shown how much they care and even remember my birthday! Today I have officially turned 26 and quite lucky to have today off. I’m back to work tomorrow morning but I am revelling in these final 30mins before heading to my bed and trying to sleep.
Mum’s side of the family including my cousin who I haven’t seen since her wedding last year in December took me out to the local RSL club where we all had together before returning home and I got a chocolate mud birthday cake from French kitchen. I also got my birthday present from my younger sister and her boyfriend a pair of pink Nike shoes and a DVD of fitness by Mel B.
Tonight after a simply fantastic time with my international friends on Second Life, I went out for a much smaller dinner with my bestie Mei/Lana, that girl spoiled me with a white musk shower gel and pretty Aquarian necklace from Peep Toe :3 I’m still quite full from dinner and I hope it digests soon!
