I’m 51 today. It’s been a pretty good day. I woke up at 4.30 with rain falling.
I started the day with my favourite drink. Coffee made with condensed milk.
Happy birthday to me
My birthday breakfast was a simple omelet
I had a Yum Cha lunch with Bron at the Dumpling Inn. Sorry, no photographs.
The best view today was a FaceTime session with my daughters.
I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra. It rained three times, only lightly mind you. It was nice getting wet 51 today.
How is 51 different to 50?
I’ve recently been enjoying some workplace training which has included sessions on persuasion and self awareness. The self awareness session reminded me of the importance of reflection. Birthdays are good for reflection. I spent a good portion of today reflecting on the last year.
My footy team the Brisbane Broncos was defeated by the Cronulla Sharks.
I was thinking of making baked salmon but after a huge Yum Cha lunch I settled for a cake. I got the Big Boy from Ricardo’s Cafe and Patisserie.

One of the great things about social media is the messages from friends and contacts.
