This time a week ago on Wednesday the 8th of September it was my Birthday! At around this time I was relaxing after such a big day watching a bit of television with the programme "RPA". Yet with that I was so glad that I had something to eat before that.
With the morning of my birthday I didn't have much of a sleep~in because my honey called me to sing me "Happy Birthday!". I went up to beaches and caught up with a friend of mine who gave me a really nice card and also a really colourful mat. Then after we went to a really healthy cafe where I decided to have a chai tea latte and a rhubarb/pear crumble with some really fresh yoghurt. She had a bacon/eggs and bread which was all organic. When the chai latte came out it was in a small bowl which totally amazed me! My face said it all.....totally surprised!!
After lunch we went to Warriewood Cinema's and saw the movie "Salt" with Angelina Jolie in it. The movie was totally action packed and kept you guessing. Caz thought it was a bit far fetched yet I didn't mind because it got me thinking. Some parts of it were a bit jumpy yet at least I didn't cry in it...which was good.
After the movie we decided to have a bit of a quiet time because Caz wasn't feeling so good. I was hoping that she'd be well enough to come out for dinner with my parents for dinner. When the time came for dinner I went by myself to the Chinese restaurant to meet my parents. For dinner we had everything duck...duck pancakes and a couple of other dishes. Both my Dad and I had desert which was lychee's and ice-cream. I also gave my Mum a little present to her which I've been wanting to give to her. She saw it and loved it which was great and meant so much to me which was good to see.
I fare~welled my parents and went back to where I was staying. I quickly checked my emails and also my Facebook. I was amazed to find so many posts for me on my profile. All of them nearly brought me to tears with who remembered my birthday. Sure I didn't see or hear from my brother (I didn't hear from him until late Monday night.) That day I still found it an amazing and also very special day sharing it with people I cared most about. Because for me each birthday is a blessed day for me and an extra day at life and living in it...
So...A big Happy Birthday to me!!! Yay!!!

Happy Birthday Caroline!!!
"Happy birthday to you!...Happy birthday to you...Happy birthday dear Caz....etc......." (rest of the song).... My voice sang down to Caz who was on the other end of the phone to an amused smile more than likely on her face. A couple of day's ago on Monday the 30th August 2010 was Caz's or Caroline's birthday. She is my very best and most special friend that I have. She really does accept me for me and understands me and I do the same for her. For me having Asperger's I've found it hard to have friends relate to me and be there for me. With Caz we have a very important, special and unique connection which means so much to us both.
It is because of this connection that I decided to take her out for lunch on her birthday which was on Monday over where she lives. I managed to arrive on time with her presents under my arm and a smile on my face which she appreciated. The Birthday Girl chose where she wanted to have lunch and we went to a restaurant near the Parramatta river cat ferry terminal. We decided to sit outside and enjoy the day. The day was a warm day which felt like spring was on the way although it had a bit of wind to it.
After looking at the menu for a while we both ordered our food eagerly looking forward to seeing what it was like. The place we were at was called "Port" which was appropriate because it was near the ferry. A few times the sun went away yet it was so nice just to sit outside. I ordered a red wine and an appetiser of grilled baby octopus which came out first. And Caz didn't have a starter which was a prawn dish with seasonal vegetables. While I decided to just have a salad which was Roma tomato's, basil and boccocini which was beautiful. It felt like a feast and that I was spoiling Caz which she deserves.
Surprisingly after that food I still had room for more yet didn't want to push it. We looked at the dessert menu and saw so many nice foods yet we both decided only to have a chai tea latte to top it off. It was so great just to share some of her birthday with her. For that evening Caz was going over have dinner with her daughter and her own parents. So she had a pretty full day as well. I also let he know how much I appreciate her for who she is and how much she means to me. Having someone like Caz means so much to me because she accepts me unconditionally. I feel totally honoured to be her friend and I have learnt so much from her as a person. So my dear friend I wish you a Happy Birthday again!!!! Sending heaps of hugs to you.......
