Ok so today is MY birthday, I have turned the ripe old age of ummmm, 22! as good a number as any I say. No to be totally honest this is my last year in the 40's, the dreaded Five OHHHHH is coming up next year, well of course one year from today. I did not want to turn 40 as 50 just seemed so much closer & I have to tell you the past nine years have flown, but hey cannot stop it so have realised its time to get over this age thing & just get on with it.
The best thing about birthdays of course is the pressies you receive, boy did I do really well this year. From my Mum & Dad I was given a beautiful jade & gold ring, my daughter Taska bought me a silver & gold bag for my Pandora bracelet, Dylan bought me a birthday cake with 3 candles & happy birthday written on it, also for my bracelet, my sister in law bought me a beautiful glass etched jewelery box, & the best pressie was a trip home in March for a couple of weeks. (Mum you cannot let Dad see this post)! I even received an email from my eldest son why still is not talking to me, so at least that was something huh? I went to my local RSL club this morning, had a small win on the pokies, was given a $10 voucher as it is MY birthday & received a free drink... Vodka & Dry thank you very much!
So all in all it is turning out to be a great day. I keep looking at my very messy house & think I should really get on & do some cleaning, but I keep hearing my Darlin' Mums voice inside my head...*You do not do ANYTHING on YOUR birthday*... what a great excuse, yep I think so to.
Ok so that's it for now, think I might shout myself a glass of wine or two as I kinda feel that 49 is a VERY special age, this time next year I will be half way through my life, not such a scary thought after all.
Hope you all out there are having as great a day as I am, & if you are lucky enough to have been born on 22nd January (love love love this date) HAVE A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY from the birthday girl (ME)
Oh & before I forget I found out the other day that my son isn't going to WA until Feb 20th, so I get to spend some extra time with him, yeehaaa.
