We had quite a big weekend, starting with the Bastille concert that I took Athena and some friends to.

I was REALLY happy to attend as I really love the band.

But being a Mum I opted to sit in the stands, rather than go into the mosh pit like the girls did :-).

You can see more of my day and the concert in my day in the life vlog.

Then on Sunday it was back up to Sydney again for the Supanova Pop Culture Expo.

We had to take 2 cars this year as there were the four of us and 2 friends going, 3 friends returning home.

Unfortunately there was quite the line to get in but it went pretty fast once the doors opened.

Since Athena went off with her friends, this year was all about My Little Pony (for Christy).

We went round to check out some of the stores…

Listened to a Q&A session with John Barrowman. A highlight of the day for sure. He was so funny, and even bought his husband onstage for a bit.

and one of his Arrow co-stars.

A highlight for Christy was getting some My Little Pony posters signed by one of the directors.

And of course, getting some photos with the likes of Merida from Brave..

Me…I opted for the Tardis…

We ended the day watching the cosplay competition. Christy had managed to get us front row seats as she went to help some of the staff remove tape off the floor while we waited.

Such a good day. Next year we hope to attend both days (we would have this year if it wasn’t for the concert).

Once again you can see more of the day in my video.

After such a great birthday weekend away the actual day was pretty low key, especially with the family leaving for school/work at 7.30am. Luckily I was feeling up to a walk with my furbabies.

We went to a different area of the lake.

I love it here with the horses…

The winding paths…

and glimpses of the lake through the trees…

Back home I got dressed for the day,

and headed off to meet with my friends Jody and Mel.

Birthday lunch with friends

We all bought our own lunch so I stopped at my favourite bakery to get a vegetable pie (best ones I’ve ever had).

Later that night we had Nan & Pop join us for takeaway Thai, followed by some birthday cake and fruit kebabs (made by Athena).

I got some money from my parents (for a future weekend away), a mug from Christy and a lovely gift from an online friend, Debbie in New Zealand. Can you tell she knows me well :-) ?
