Homebody SYDNEY STYLE THESE DAYS 40th Birthday Party
My 40th birthday was celebrated in elegant fashion on an unseasonably hot winter afternoon in August 2002 at the home of my parents in Sydney. Thanks to all who came along and made it such a special day. Thanks to Justin for his memorable speech. And thanks to Bob King for his great photos, more than 60 of which are on this page.
