Not only do I get to pig out on birthday cake that for once I didn't make, but I get fancy theater trips, nice meals, a day off work, pretty flowers and presents!!!!!!!! Yay!!!
Birthday surprises are one of those things that my family plans but never succeeds in keeping a secret because they’re so excited they want to tell me. One of which was going to see the ballet Hansel and Grettle on Thursday with my mum and wee sis who are excellent ballet going company of you don't mind the constant struggle for armrest space, and them nicking all your chocolates. Which oddly enough I don't ... much.
However I did get a brilliant surprise which remained a bit of a mystery for well over 3 hours until I discovered who had sent them were the gorgeous flowers from a local florist that where delivered to my home this morning.
The downside of being an adult is that life must go on birthday or not and what with mine falling on a Monday this year, most people are working and I have to attend to the normal day to day drudgery that is responsibility. :(
Despite this I’ve had a great birthday so far and being surrounded by some great if slightly drunk friends right now is only making it better! Plus I got new shoes so the world is right again!
