Birthday Girl – 41 Today!
Turning 40 last year didn’t bother me as much as turning 30 had done! I’m happy to be in my forties and I don’t feel as old as I expected to!
I did incorrectly tell Kaycee I was 31 when she asked how old I was today, though. It just came out and it took me a few seconds to realise I wasn’t actually 31; Freudian slip comes to mind!
In The Morning…
When I woke this morning, everyone had forgotten it was my birthday and it was a quarter of an hour before anyone wished me a happy birthday. Kaycee went upstairs to fetch my pressies and get Ella up and Ant went to help.
Now Ella isn’t her best in the mornings. She’s like me and prefers to be left alone until she’s woken up slowly. She didn’t get to do that this morning and I ended up with 2 crying girls handing me birthday gifts!
Kaycee was upset because she had to leave early for school and was going to miss me opening my presents. Ella was upset because Ant had to talk to sharply to her to get her out of bed.
I had to promise Kaycee that I’d wait for her to come home from school before I opened my presents!
I had to go to Slimming World today and do the weigh in for everyone this morning. In the afternoon I did a couple of hours in the charity shop. I usually do Tuesday mornings at the charity shop but something came up yesterday and I wasn’t able to make it.
So after a busy day, I went home to finally open my presents!
They were worth wait 🙂
I got seasons 5 and 6 of Game of Thrones (we’re only season 2 at the moment!)
Always lots of books from the family and a lovely top from my from my friend 🙂
Some gorgeous plants from a friend at Slimming World and a candle from the ladies at the charity shop.
My best friend bought me the gorgeous angel bird house and the alcohol….she knows me well!
The fairy birdbath and the owl bookmark with my birthstone on are from Ant and the kids 🙂
Garden Centre Vouchers
Finally, I got some garden centre vouchers and this wonderful fairy from my mother-in-law.
I got more garden centre vouchers from my father-in-law and my step daughter and her partner also got me garden centre vouchers and a Winnie The Pooh mug.
My mum’s bought me a fairy house for the garden but she lives in Derbyshire and I haven’t seen her yet. I know what it looks like, though, as I added it to my Amazon wishlist last month!
I’ve had a really lovely day and want to thank everyone for making me feel so special.
