It’s My Birthday – 42 Today & Feeling My Age!

42 today ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I think I am; I keep forgetting how old I am and one year I thought I was a year older than I was. It was a really nice surprise when someone told me I was actually a year younger!!
That, someone, wasn’t Ant, though because he’s always saying I’m older than I am and he even says I’m older than him! (He’s 18 years older than me for anyone who doesn’t know us!)
I have to admit, however, the first signs of ageing are starting to creep in. My face has erupted in what looks like milk spots that babies get but apparently, they’re called milia spots. Also, the skin on my forehead is constantly dry no matter how much I moisturise. I’m going to have to get some professional advice from a skin clinic soon!

Anyway, enough of the depressing, getting older, talk. I still love my birthdays because all my lovely family spoil me rotten ๐Ÿ™‚

Birthday Presents – 42 Today ๐Ÿ™‚

Last year I told KayCeeย I was 31 instead of 41 and it took me a few minutes to realise I wasn’t in my 30’s anymore.

birthday presents and flowers - 42 today

I’ve not opened my presents and cards yet because early this morning we called to check on my father-in-law and he wasn’t well. He got taken to hospital in an ambulance and Ant’s been there with him all day.

We’re postponing my birthday until tomorrow after school so everyone can be here ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, that’s except for the bottle of salted caramel liqueurย my dad gave me a day early….it’s going down a treat!

Edit – 15th July

I didn’t manage to open them in front of everyone because Ant was back at the hospital with his dad and Ella went out to her friend’s house!

We had a little mishap with the presents as well –

I thought it looked like I’d got lots of books and I knew I didn’t have that many on my Amazon wishlist. All became clear when Ella gave me the presents she’d wrapped for me – 2 of them were books I’d bought for KayCee’s birthday next month and had given to Ant to hide for me!

He’d put them on the wrong shelf (he has a shelf in the garage for me and a shelf for the children’s presents that we buy throughout the year. None of us except him,ย go in the garage so it’s a good storage place!) and gave the whole series to me. He even ordered the last book from Amazon because it wasn’t available when I bought the first 5 books!

Spoilt again!

As usual, I’ve been spoilt for my birthday.
