Happy Birthday Mark

What a beautiful day for a birthday. After all the overcaste and rainy days we've had, today has been glorious. Birthday celebrations began with breakfast of course..

Followed by some op- shopping. Before you think "poor man fancy being dragged along to op- shops on his birthday" let me tell you it was his choice, he just happens to love op shopping as much as me. He was in need of some shorts, sandals and he just can't resist stainless steel. I found some curtaining for some new curtains in the WWOOFer's caravan, some books for some light reading over Christmas and a children's book for the  littlies. (oops, sorry it's up side down)

 And then, a picnic lunch in the park...

Although the ocean was choppy and  the breeze a little cool, it was lovely to be near the sea. We enjoyed a lunch of home made paneer, grilled eggplant, sundried tomatoes and olives with crusty bread. Yum!

And then home for birthday cake and a cup of tea. I'm always longing to get home for a cuppa if I've been out all day.
Chocolate zucchini cake of course!
Mark and I have been together for 9 years now. It has been an amazing journey. He is an amazing individual , a master garlic braider, and my best friend. Happy Birthday Mark!

Mark will draw the give away at 8 this evening so you still have time to leave a comment. Check back here after 8pm to see the results!
Tricia has featured him in her post on garlic. There's a great photo of him taken by little eco.
