Girl's weekend away

Over the weekend I went to a birthday party for one of my wonderful friends, the country lady, myself and our friend Selina were invited to party. 

We decided it would be F A N T A S T I C to make a weekend of it and have a girl's weekend.

I was really excited because it was the first time I would be away for most of the weekend, I have never really left the munchkins, yes I do go to work as a night duty nurse but that doesn't count because I leave when the munchkins are asleep and get back when they wake up. 

Anyhoo going back to the girl's weekend away, the country lady picked me up and off we went.

We had loads of fun at the party the birthday girl has been a friend of ours for a very long time, since the time we were young sexy and free, the party was fabulous of course the food was flowing and the cocktails were endless.

It was time to dance our way home, you know it has been a good night when you are eating a magnum at two am.

I was in charge of food and prepared a basket with goodies for the weekend.
For dinner I prepared a mezze style platter with my homemade roast chicken, roast potatoes and greens and of course we couldn't have dinner without a glass or two of moscato.
I was feeling like such a party animal at the birthday party. I was trying to convince the girls that we needed to continue partying and celebrate the birthday and Oktoberfest.

I was not feeling so much like a party animal the day after, I made a big fry up, Selina had the most yummy Greek yogurt infused with myrtle and toasted macadamia it was so delish with a bowl of fresh mangoes.
After breakfast the country lady made her way home and Selina and I just lay around enjoying the hot weather and a cold drink.

How could we not with a backyard like this one. Thanks Selina for hosting us.
I loved the girl's weekend away even if it was only overnight, one must start with baby steps right.!!!!
