Many thanks for all the birthday greetings. I had a lovely day, ending with the Hurricanes winning their rugby game easily even with 2 men off the field at one stage in the sin bin. Now they are 3rd on the ladder - may they stay there or even move up.
And all the orders your placed from my blog offer will be posted tomorrow - just as well I only have a birthday once a year!
Here are some pics from Bali
We had our own swimming pool which we enjoyed using - every afternoon dark clouds rolled in and thunder and lightening and then rain - wonderful. Pool was just big enough to swim around a bit and certainly lovely to cool off in - just outside the pool were the rice paddies.
This is the lounge - sort of outdoor/indo
and this is the entrance to our villa - through a little gate
The lights were all enclosed in these wonderful little structures.
