And another joins the 50 club! Part one...

For those of you that follow my blog (welcome to the new followers, good to see you ♥) may remember that my friend Anna-Marie came all the way over from Geelong, Victoria in Australia for my 50th birthday celebrations in March. 
We hadn't seen each other in 15 yrs and it has been wonderful to meet up with her again. I said I would be over for her 50th (whether she wanted me to or not! haha)
It was the first time I've flown on my own, gawd it makes yer arms ache! It was a great flight, it stayed in the air and I'm pretty pleased about that and from getting off the plane and walking through into the arrivals hall was less than 10 minutes! Not bad eh?
Now I took a gazillion photos, don't worry I'm not about to put them all on here, but I will put a link to them all on Faceache...opps Arsebook...bugger I mean Facebook!
I will however share some of my favourite photos with a very brief explanation of the day and what we did.....enjoy.........
