My 21st birthday yesterday.

Yesterday I turned 21.
I woke up about 10ish, chatted to Mum and we decided to go to the Women's Expo. So we had showers and stuff. Then we headed off. We both had so much fun! I think I would have been bored if it were just me. But Mum and I had some good bonding time together. We got lots of free taste-tests and entered a bunch of competitions. We both had LOADS of fun, and I'm so thankful for the time I got to spend with her!

Then we got home and had a bit of a rush to get ready for dinner. Dad took us out (with Grandma and Grandpa too) to Cicerellos in Fremantle. He didn't actually tell us where we were going, and I think everyone was expecting somewhere a little fancier, including Dad. But I was determined to enjoy myself, and not ruin my birthday by being a bad sport about it. Dad and Grandpa bought some wine. But it was a bit sweet, so I mixed it with some of Grandma's Lemonade and sculled it while everyone was ordering (I'd already looked at the menu). I had garlic prawns and they were nice enough. I enjoyed them better at Tiamo's. But oh well, they were still good. Then I had some ice-cream and we all headed home again.

Went to bed at 11ish. All in all, it was a good day. :D

Grandma and Grandpa bought me this beautiful necklace and earrings set! Very simple and plain, but really beautiful. The chain that the pendant is on is VERY fine. I've never seen a chain so fine. I'm rather scared I'll break it.

And Uncle John and (almost) Aunty Jenny gave me a check and a '21' photo album. So I plan on lots of photos from my party to put in it. And Baba (step-grandma on Mum's side) also gave me a check. I called them all yesterday to thank them.
