Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone. I had such a lovely day. There was chocolate birthday cake to begin with. So much yum. I went down town in the afternoon and bought some more books, as you do. I got the Vampire Weekend CD as well. I had seen it in HMV the other week and naturally it caught my eye, having Vampire in the title. Then over the weekend, they played some of it on the radio and I was liked what I heard. So I bought it. I went for a birthday drink in Busker Browne's too. I was a bit thirsty and felt in need of a sit down. It's so good to be able to walk into a pub at a reasonable pace, unlike before when I'd have to boot it in there to find the nearest toilets. I felt it was good to have a drink in there and continue breaking the cycle.
Colette and me went for dinner last night in Oscar's Restaurant. I have heard so many people raving about this restaurant for years and I was never hearing anything bad about it. We were not disappointed. I had fishcakes for a starter and chicken linguine for my main course. My mother started with potato skins and went for sirloin steak for her main. Then we had raspberry pancakes for dessert. It was made of win! We were stuffed leaving, but in a good way. The whole day made up for the crappy birthdays of the past four years.
And it's actually four years ago this month that the whole Crohn's flare up started. I am so glad to have that behind me.

To be able to eat what I want, when I want is something I am not used to yet. Down in Waterford, knowing I could eat my breakfast and still be able to wander the town, that feeling nearly made me high. I was ready to launch into a musical number right there in the hotel and in the street, if it weren't for the fact that without proper choreography I'd look hopelessly uncoordinated and probably fall into the river. Be a memorable holiday though.
To conclude: food is fun!
