Sandi's special "0" Birthday

Tuesday saw us celebrating Sandi's big 50 Birthday

We started the day with gifts of course

They are a bit hard to see here.....
 lovely red Swarovski earrings, something we all knew that she wanted.....


A photo album with heaps of funny photos of her and us as well.....
lots of fun memories.....


Every birthday girl needs a "Tiara" and badge....



Then it was off to Ipswich for our big day out.....

Our first stop was a little cafe called "Nourish"....
for morning tea of course....


We wanted to look at the "Old Flour Mill" which has lots of small shops of interest....


So we thought......
alas it has been restored and the shops at this stage are all empty.....

so we saved lots of money here....


Heaps of history in Ipswich......


But it was lunch time so off to our next stop......

Sandi thought we were going to a cafe that we have all being wanting to go to but unfortunately it doesn't open on Tuesdays (they must have heard about us noisy girls)  but we didn't bother to tell Sandi ..... lol...
great to have a surprise.....

"Behind Our Picket Fence"


It was a great place and we did have the best time.....
The staff were wonderful and the food was terrific.....


We had organised a birthday cake, made by the cafe.....
Even though Sandi had told us "definitely no birthday cake"

when do we ever do as we are told....



It was yum and did taste as good as it looks.....
The cafes signature 
choc-mud "barip" cake with biscotti shards and strawberry goop....







Messing around with selfies......

obviously we haven't mastered that yet.....




A truly fantastic day......

Happy birthday Sandi.......
love these girlies......


So toodles once again.....
