Today is my 48th Birthday (no cheers please as I just feel old and frazzled)....I was sitting on my bed watching a DVD this morning eating a cooked breakfast (that I had to make for myself mind you, as no one here would EVER think to do that for me) when the phone rang. It was my dear friend Dianne from Maitland NSW wishing me a happy birthday. After a few minutes chat, I was in tears about getting old alone etc. Dianne and I decided to make exciting plans for my 50th birthday in 2010. We are going to save our pennies like crazy and spend Christmas day and my birthday and New Years in PARIS. Sooooooooo I will be cutting corners, penny pinching and calling in all favors to make sure I can go on this wonderful dream holiday. I have been to Paris before and have posted photos of my first visit there in 2005. My wish is to eat my birthday dinner at the Le Jules Verne restaurant based on the tower.
