Day 90. Perth

Happy Birthday Robyn

Robyn and Bec
Today was Robyn's Birthday! After I got Scarlett and Nana out of the caravan, the girls all ran in and jumped into Robyn's bed wishing her a happy birthday and showering her with gifts. Marty cooked us all a lovely breakfast of Eggs Benedict, he did such a great job, they were beautiful.

After breakfast Robyn put a new colour in my hair, I am now a lovely shade of burgundy. I was in desperate need to cover up all the grey. Mum and I did a quick trip to the shops to grab a couple of birthday cakes for today. One (a caramel and pecan cake) was to take out to lunch, and the second was (fairy and unicorn cake) for the girls to give her when we got back for afternoon tea.

Robyn, mum and I met a few of Robyn's friends for lunch at 'Emma's on the Boardwalk' a lovely restaurant over looking the water at Rockingham. The meals were really good and the company great. Everyone had a relaxing time looking out over the bay, with the magic weather I'm sure Robyn had a fantastic time.

On the way home from lunch we called into the shopping centre so Robyn could spend the gift voucher we got for her birthday. She got some really nice PJ's and underwear. Marty called as the girls were driving him insane so it was time to head back, they were chomping at the bit to give Robyn her birthday cake.

Blowing out the birthday candles...

We had a quiet afternoon, eating more birthday cake and playing with the kids. This evening Marty has taken Robyn out for dinner, and I am watching the kids, they were as good as gold. I will say I am missing Shane a little, but I know he is having a great time and I am happy for him.

Day 2 at Barbagello

Both Geoff and I were a little dehydrated this morning - nothing some vegemite on toast and a strong coffee couldn't fix.

We were at the track before 7am, and waiting at the back of the pits for the drivers to arrive. Geoff has a 1:18 scale 2009 Bathurst 'Sprint Racing' car driven by Murphy and Skaife, and really wanted to get Murphy's Signature. We didn't have to wait long, as both 'Murph' and David Reynolds soon arrived at the track. Geoff 'pounced', and had his much needed signatures even before 'Murph' was out of the car he was driving. Russell (Bec's dad) would of been proud of Geoff's stalking abilities...

During the course of the day, Geoff (who was now on a roll), bought another model car and was again stalking Greg Murphy for another signature. We soon found him over the other side of the race track, and then had the needed signatures. Unfortunately Craig Lowndes was nowhere to be seen, but we had a plan to 'ambush' him early tomorrow morning...

Today we ended watching Race 1 and all the other action from the far side of the track. The skies were clear, the sun was out, and we both ended up sunburnt by the end of the day. It was a good day at the track, but I think the sun started taking its toll.

By the time we returned to Geoff's house, we were both buggered. I shouted Geoff to Pizza (delivered of course), and before we knew it we had fallen asleep in front of the TV.
