Happy Birthday to Me!

{In our house birthdays mean breakfast in bed, even for mummy!}

It’s my birthday today (yay! happy birthday to me!). I still get ridiculously excited about birthdays and even if I don’t exactly whoop with joy at the thought of new wrinkles appearing, I don’t actually mind getting older (hey, it beats the alternative, right?) and hopefully wiser. My friend Angela over at Read,Sugar wrote a great post on why we should all embrace our birthdays, no matter what age we are (read it here).

These days, birthdays are less about the presents (although there were plenty of those as well, including a new lens for my Nikon camera, this perfume, some more Mateus china for my collection and new yoga clothes) and more about the children piling into bed singing happy birthday and covering me with kisses. (Before devouring my cupcakes and getting crumbs all over the bed, but I can overlook small stuff like that on my birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ )

It’s been a busy day so far, starting with a gym class followed by coffee with friends and then a quick trip to the tile shop as the building work to repair the damage caused by a leaking pipe is finally underway. This evening we’re going out for dinner as a family to celebrate a little bit more. Now the sun’s out and it’s shaping up to be a beautiful Autumn day and a great birthday! X

  1. How old are you?
    My birthday is exactly a month from yours. Maybe we are the same age…
    I looked at the Swedish chinas…. you have a divine taste. Which is nothing new…. ๐Ÿ˜› Are you going to share a picture of what was added to your collection? I used to be a yoga addict so I am curious about your yoga outfit as well (maybe it will be your outfit on Saturday…;) )…
    I read Angela’s post a few days ago… it was an interesting one with the mean lady in the restroom..
    How was dinner?
    Big birthday hug!

    • How funny! Apart from my daughter who was born in July all our birthdays are between October 2 and November 4. A busy month! I will definitely take some pictures of the china. Unfortunately they don’t sell it in the uk so I always put a few pieces on my birthday and Christmas lists. My husband is away this weekend so wearing the yoga outfit might fool me into thinking I’m nice and relaxed being on my own with the kids! X
