Family gathering every Tuesday and Dining out on our Birthdays!

In our family, we make a point of meeting each other for dinner every Tuesday. This way I know I am going to see my children and their partners and family at least once a week. One home-cooked family meal every 7 days. It’s a nice simple tradition.

However on birthdays we make an exception. The birthday person picks the restaurant of their choice and we go out to celebrate on (or near) their birthday. It’s a nice way to sample new restaurants around Perth, but often we just end up at our favourites again.

June 5th is my husband’s birthday. He had been working away but arrived the day before, just in time for us to make a birthday booking. His choice was the Belgian Beer Cafe. It’s his favoutite, for the ambience, the food, and of course – the beer. I am not a beer drinker, but i tried the Cherry Kriek beer which is the most delicious – and does not taste like beer at all!

As we get older, it gets harder and harder to find the right gifts for one another. What do you get the person who has everything they need? We seem to be more interested in finding the funniest cards we can, instead. We all have a good laugh!

Do you have any special family or birthday traditions?
