Today was Adam’s 42nd birthday. The day began with the obligatory breakfast and presents in bed and then on to some slight silliness with Christmas tree decorating. Caitlin asked Adam to put an angel on the top of the tree. So he did.
The middle part of the day was less than wonderful, but we’ll skip over that, other than to mention that Adam had to go to his mum’s place (who was oblivious to it being his birthday) and fix her toilet.
By late afternoon we had regained some equanimity, and Adam and Tom had made 12 bottles of ginger beer and 6 bottles of lemonade for our Christmas party next weekend. Then we headed off to Darling Harbour for dinner at Jordon’s – the plan being to indulge in a seafood platter and a bottle of sav blanc. The order was duly placed, along with a few extras, and we began playing with Adam’s new toy – a Canon Powershot S95. Most of the following photos were taken from our table in the restaurant.
The seafood platters on their tall stands were very tempting to the local seagull population. Several chips and scraps of fish were liberated from people’s platters around us. One couple were given a water pistol by a waiter to defend their meal with! Our kids wanted to be armed as well but we were left alone by the birds for some reason, I think they knew we were watching them.
And there you have it, my Sunday in my city.
