The Orchid Room | In Celebration of Mum's 50th Birthday
Yesterday was my mother’s 50th birthday. In most countries I assume that turning half a century old (sorry mum..) is a biggie. Well – we didn’t fail to do it in style. We booked a table for our family and closest friends at one of the poshest restaurants in town called, ‘The Orchid Room.’
I love that name – funny though as I didn’t happen to see one orchid while there.. devious bastards. Truly though, it was an absolutely magnificent setting. The restaurant is situated in the Simola Hotel – and has the most breath-taking view of the town that I live in.
My brother and I shared their smoked duck started which was divine but lacking in a lot of duck strips unfortunately. I think I ate most of the duck when I brother popped to the loo.. which he wasn't too impressed about!
There was sushi too and mains were divine. Most people around the table opted for rack of lamb - but, naturally, I prefer to be different. I had their chicken and prawn Thai curry which was simply gorgeous.
Overall it was a wonderful evening and yesterday was an insanely good day in general! I felt like I was on cloud nine, on the highest of highs! Today wasn't too bad either actually and one of my very best friends, Lucien, is visiting for the week so we are having a little get-together tonight which I am so excited about.
Here are a few photo's from last night. I was wearing my new funky dress from Legit which was an absolute bargain, paired with KILLER heels that I ended up taking off and chucking underneath the table half way through the dinner! (Yes that explains why I am so tall in the photographs... normally I look like the pathetic midget in family photo's...):
I know one would normally suggest that as the Auntie I am completely biased towards saying that my nephew is the most beautiful baby in the world..... but seriously... he really is!!!!
Here's a few of the latest snaps we've got of him - he's even started smiling and giggling (in his own goofy and weird way,) now.
This form of love that is now resonating inside of me is a form that I have never before felt... he's just perfection.
I love my nephew, Jenson... oh! And happy birthday mum ;)
