Happy Karma Birthday, I've got almost 50% more than you, and it's over a month since anyone gave me any karma either.

That's fantastic, made me smile too. Shows how dumb they are. It doesn't make you a horrible person at all.

Dreamy, not saying happy birthday again, twice is plenty.

I realise this might piss a few people off but we are heading to my bucket list destinations of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. Sooooooooooo excited! Just got to pack and then we are heading to the Auckland airport hotel overnight ready to check-in early tomorrow morning. Can't wait to leave the Auckland winter behind for a fortnight

Sorry!

Do you need a travel companion? That's on my bucket list as well. Maybe one day I'll get there. Lucky, lucky you. Enjoy.

How fabulous! If you can share some photos on your return that would be great, then we can all live vicariously through it too
