Snapshot Saturday: Blue Birthday

Eagle Hawk Lookout, Blue Mountains, NSW Australia. Behind me, the famous Three Sisters rock formation (left) and Jamison Valley.

I was devouring every dish from the buffet spread, and appeared elated to the small group of merry people on our round table. I was about twenty pounds above my normal weight yet my massiveness was the least of my concerns. In my head, I was trying hard to brush off a horrific thought.

The thought that I may give birth anytime bugged me heaps even though the Chinese restaurant where we had my birthday lunch is just a few meters away from the hospital. It was my 30th by the way, and that was definitely not how I envisioned my big three-O to be... Celebrating with pregnancy blues.

Yesterday, to make up for that doleful event last year, I partied like 31 is the new 21 (and by "partied" I mean chugged, then bushwalked until we were bushed). From one blue birthday to another: Pregnancy blues last year, Blue Mountains (Australia) birthday this year - Now ain't that cool?
