Birthday cake made by my wonderful mother. D ate a very large amount of it, as did I. In fact, I've been eating it for breakfast most days.
Dinner at Osteria Russo & Russo on Thursday night. J and I went to our regular pilates class before dinner, so felt less guilty about the 6 courses we devoured.
I wore my new birthday present from J and the kids. It's s sweater with sparkles and stripes by Leon & Harper:
On Friday we had a bit of a break from gluttony, but on Saturday night, a group of us went out for dinner at Vini, a great little Italian place. I wore my Hervé Léger dress, and ole J Crew cardie, Mulberry pumps and Acne clutch.
My girlfriend A showed me how to do a posh bun arrangement. It is achieved by using and old sock as a bun-plumping device. I'm sure the whole world knew about this trick apart from me, but anyway, now I'm in the know, and have a plump bun 'do!
Dinner was fantastic. We booked the whole back room and gorged ourselves. Fine wines were also imbibed in fairly generous quantities.

Waiting for more food:
Altogether a fantastic birthday weekend. Lots of lovely friends, family, food and conversation.
Lovely gifts, too.
I may also have indulged in a little self-gifting.
Pics to follow soon.
Hope you had a lovely weekend with lots of good food and booze too!
