My birthday and back in SA!!!!!!

I'm 25!!!!!!!! Quater of a centuary old today :-D Obviously wouldn't have been here without the new lungs, so very grateful for every birthday... feeling like a child about birthdays (although that's never been different, lol)!

What a rough last 48 hours!!! We almost missed our flight from Brisbane to Perth because our bus was late, and I've slept 4 hours in the last 2 days (couldn't sleep Sat night and also can't sleep on a plane). Luckily I slept the whole afternoon so feeling better. Chris took leave for the day, so we had a chilled day, went out for lunch, had a nap, unpacked etc!

Not so excited about being back at work tomorrow, but it'll be better once I get the first day back over and done with! Posting some last pics from the athletics on Sat and Gala Dinner...

Happy Birthday and congrats on your participation at the games!!

Ive been following your blog on and off the past year. I had no idea that you competed in the racewalk division. Very cool!!

Yes, it's a judged sport with only 2 major rules: You have to have one foot on the ground at all times and the forward leg can't bend until it passes under your body.

Baie geluk ook met jou verjaardag - wat 'n geseende 25ste verjaardag. Mag daar nog baie wees.
Mooi bly en lekker werk.

Happy Birthday from a fan in the U.S. and congrats on the games. I am sure that was an unbelievable experience and I can imagine your donor's sister was overjoyed to get to know you and Trevor a bit. No doubt it is difficult to come back to earth and the routine of everyday life - but, hey, each day is a blessing. Happy Birthday - Happy 25th year.
