And you smell like one too...



Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes, darlings!!!
Squee!
I've been having the most lovely, loved up and relaxed weekend!
There isn't really that much to report, but I'll do my best!


G and I popped out to a local beach (Spencer Park) for a quick swim on Saturday after we picked up the wood for my shelves...of which only one got put up, it was just so hot!
We spent the rest of the day lolling about-in fact, I think I had another nana nap!
 
 


Then we went out to dinner at our new favourite Thai restaurant....


After which, despite ideas of grandeur, ie: going to a bar or something, we went home, watched a Midsomer Murder and I went to bed.....


The actual day of my birthday, Sunday, was exceptionally lazy!
This is a grand achievement for me.
I used to be an "active relaxer".
Not anymore.
Despite one of G's aunts (Cousin Phil's Mama) ringing at 9:30am to wish me happy birthday, we didn't get out of bed until 11:30 am.
A bit later we decided to go down to Pomeroy's for a drinkie or two...
 
 
 
 


After that, we cycled up to Jane's Bar for a few more drinkies.
Bar hopping, I suppose?!
Does it count if it was only 2 bars?!
 
 


Today we went out opshopping, and I was quite happy enough to pick up a splendid Pyrex bowl for $2, a cream cardi and some cute earrings.


We had intended to have lunch at the Mediterranean Warehouse Cafe, where they do great Italian style pizza, but they've been closed for the holidays and don't open until the 21st.........so we went home and G sorted out a platter of nibbles whilst I had Humpy snuggles.......


Wine?!
O, yes please, saucy garcon!

What a lovely day! You two looked like you had a lot of fun.

List Addict said...

Excellent garconing happening there! You hair looks lovely down. If you hop from one place to another it is still hopping so I would call that 'achieved'. Enjoy the rest of your birthday weekend.

Carina Rosenholm said...

What a glourious way to spend a day ore a weekend ! Oh how i would love to go to the beach....

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

I have a serious question but it's a bit odd: Are you wearing a bra under the bathing suit or is the bra built in? I can never get enough support for one piece suits! What's your secret?

two squirrels said...

Joni said...

Happy Birthday! Sounds like my kind of celebration. We often go out, starting with cocktails first and grand ideas for the evening. Shortly after the meal we just want to retire with a movie.
Love your man's new chops, and you look great on the beach in your vintage swimsuit Helga!

karensomethingorother said...

Yay!

Happy Birthday Helga! You look beautiful and happy--that and a really good sleep-in is all any girl really needs for her birthday. Oh, and a saucy garcon doesn't hurt either.

thorne garnet said...

Happy Birthday!

Fiona said...

Glad you had a fab relaxing birthday. Loving the 'hair down' frock, what a groovy print. So envious of the sun (think I've said this before) it's bastard freezing here, we had a smattering of snow this morning.

Vintage Coconut said...

Your Birthday sounded totally fabulous and you looked rather gorgeous celebrating it.
That pyrex bowl you found is quite awesome and $2 holy shizz what a great price.
Love that last pic of G! You have yourself a mighty fine Fella, and he serves you wine like a butler... NOW WHAT COULD BE BETTER?? ;)

Krista Gassib said...

pastcaring said...

Lovely, loved up and relaxing - that sounds like the BEST sort of birthday weekend!
Gorgeous beachy pics, ooh I don't half want to pinch your magnificent bum in that fabulous cossie!
The Thai food looks delicious, is that a new frock you are wearing? And is that a sneaky peek of bra? Also delicious!
LOVING the hair down, slighty dishevelled, so sexy, just-got-out-of-bed-with-G, cleavage ahoy look in the pub, phooaarr!
And who doesn't want to stroke a pussy while being offered a delightfully cheeky red by a saucy garcon?
Yes please from me too! xxxxxxxxxx

Renia said...

What a great birthday weekend. Hope mine will be so cool to.
Love that swimsuit! And do I see it good? Do have a tattoo on your back?
I love tattoo's. (just got my second one).
And I don't know how you do it, but it seems like everytime when I look at your blog, you are wearing a new dress. I love the blue one with the flowers. :)
Have a wonderfull day!

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Sleeping late, you at the beach (so cute in your bathing suit!!), Thai food, thrifting, drinks, cycling to bars, cute garçon... That is pretty much my idea of the perfect birthday <3
p.s. I absolutely adore the paint job in your house-- I can see it behind the saucy garçon-- and it is awesome!!

Luna Tiger said...

Marla Robinson said...

What a lovely day. Love your blue swimsuit!

Rose&Bird said...

Sorry, completely forgot to wish you happy birthday! Looking fantastic and you obviously had a great weekend. Who could say no to a cheeky red (actually mine would be a white or pink, but hey)!

Miss Simmonds Says said...

G's growing some nice sidies there! You look wonderful my darling beach babe! Love that swimsuit! I also adore that dress. The food is making me so hungry. The restaurants and bars round your neck of the woods look a thousand times more appealing than over here! Happy birthday again. Xxxx

Dashfield Vintage said...

It's your birthday again?! My goodness how time flies! Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear! It looks like you had a great day. Love your bathing suit. I am so incredibly behind on all my favourite blogs at the moment so I seriously need to catch up on yours and the ever colourful life of Ms Von Trollop. x

Your birthday weekend sounds magical. I'm drooling over the psychedelic print of your Sunday dress and the lovely pile o'necklaces.
Lovely starry cardi and earrings. Garcon's chemise is fab, too.

The Style Crone said...

A late Happy Birthday wish to you Helga. Hoping that your year will be filled with all that you desire as you continue to inspire and delight.

Stacey said...

Happy belated birthday! I do adore your swimsuit - I'm hoping to track down a similar one for next Summer. Both of your frocks are to die for, and I love the photo of you with your hair down. You have such beautiful locks!
