Pandemic turns another year older...

Hard to believe a whole year has passed since we last went to a Pandemic birthday party! However, having said that, it seems that so much has happened since the last one! We've got settled here, met lots of new people, made some good friends (I actually first met Rej at the Pandemic party last year and Clo just after), the Purdys moved here, I switched jobs, we've done a couple of trips...yes, lots has happened indeed! It'll be interesting to see where we all are and what's changed by the next one! We had a great time last night. It's always fun to dress up and see everyone dressed up. I found my seventies style dress in a cool retro shop in Melbourne and so, Steve decided to dress to match me. He looked like quite the hottie! The wine flowed freely, which got a little dangerous but made for lots of laughs and lots of fun! Here's a few pics from the evening...

Marianna and Clo...
Amy and Stacey...
There was a fantastic magician walking around doing tricks...he swallowed a whole balloon! He's just getting started in this pic...
Here he goes...
Almost there...
Gone! He was really good! I want to hire him to do a kids' show at work for our vacation care!
Sexy Steve...
Oh my, not sure what was happening in this pic!
Darryl and Rej listening to the speeches...
Some of the ladies...everyone looked so nice!
Some of the couples...
Speaking of couples, Nick and Marianna looked stunning!
After dinner, we headed to a club on the waterfront called Jade Buddha. I've been wanting to go there forever, as I've heard it's good. Here's Kate on the walk there...
More drinks at the bar. This one is of Vic and Julia. You can see the Story Bridge behind them. There was a great view from the bar! Apparently, they have great martinis too. I wouldn't know, I was only drinking water from dinner on! Those early drinks on an empty belly were dangerous for a lot of us!
I like this pic...I like Steve's smile in this one...
Me and my shoes...
More fun times...
It was chilly at the bar, so I borrowed some of Clo's shawl...looks like I hogged most of it by this picture!
Lastly, Kate and Morgan.

Thanks for the great company everyone! And thanks to Pandemic for yet another fun evening!:)

That picture of you and Steve...you HAVE to frame it. It's soo cute! I can't believe Steve had an authentic smile for a picture. You looked super cute in that dress of yours!
