Today we celebrated Mary's birthday at Michael's Oriental Restaurant. Mary has recently bought herself a green house and she has been working hard in it and around it. Birthday Bear came to share some of her expert knowledge on greenhouse gardening. She is dressed in her gardening outfit and brought her wheelbarrow of pebbles, tools and a super little greenhouse, with shelves of flowers and a wee door too, thanks to the clever hands of Ann and George.
We had a great time together especially as Chris and Bob our travelling buddies were near Brisbane so they could join us. Sadly, Paul wasn't able to be with us today as he had a large dose of Chemo therapy on Wednesday and he is toxic and should stay away from people for a while. Poor Paul is fighting Mesothelioma.
For those not familiar with our Birthday Bear tradition can read about it here.

|I love her new pink shoes and fancy watering can.|
She has a succulent candle too.
We ordered a banquet and there were many different, delicious dishes (say that fast 6 times). The chicken and pumpkin curry was presented nicely in the shell of the pumpkin.
