Managed to have one a a half days of birthday celebrations. Started to coincide with midnight NZ time with champagne, fois gras and chocolate...nice! Sadly, the 2nd here in Beaulieu was kind of overcast and cold. Happily, perfect weather for shopping. Bea had a meeting she had to go to in the afternoon so she dropped me at the Odyseum, a giant mall thing just out of Montpelier. Yep...shoes and clothes galour! First stop a pair of comfortable but nice boots. Then a skirt, top and jacket...happiness! Also got myself a local sim card for local phone calls.
Ended the afternoon drinking tea and eating little pastry things...mmmmm!
In the evening more champagne , fois gras and chocolate...perfect. Bea and I ended the day being ridiculous in front of her computer messing around with her photo software...see for yourselves.....
