I'm a spoilt girl that's for sure. It was my birthday this week - another year older to be certain - but I sure don't feel it. It's a shock when people ask how old I am and I have to count the years to work it out. In my head I feel mid-twenties, in my body not so much, but I sure don't act like my twenties are well behind me! 'Age is a state of mind' is my theory and I'm sticking to it!
I have to say that this birthday outdid itself - the second best birthday ever (*the best being the day I got married - yep, I got married on my birthday - fantastic party!!). For starters the weather was perfect - nothing like waking to a warm spring day with the sun shining and birds tweeting outside the bedroom window.
I worked, as was usual for a weekday, but there was cake for morning tea. Sure, I baked it myself but it was yummy. Chocolate chocolate, double chocolate cake, big enough to feed the masses, of which I had only a small piece (lots of icing) because I didn't want the sugar-low to kick in too early - I had a dinner date that night!
Later the LOML took me out to dinner (Chinese) along with 12 of our closest friends and family. It was an awesome night. Lots of laughing, delicious food, cake, wine and more laughing. I had the best night. We finished it off with a nightcap at the local down the road before heading home to bed (I was the only one who had to get up the next morning for work - bad planning there on my part!).
The LOML, bless his cotton socks, knows the way to my heart - he gave me an apple tree...
....and a box of worms!! So very excited!!!
I also received some other beautiful gifts - very spoilt. I didn't manage to scratch the set for life or the $500,000 though I did win $36 which I must remember to go and collect. The LOML says I should reinvest but I'm thinking a couple of cake decorating magazines might be in order!
The best birthday in a long while, and nine years married. Love it xxx and love you, LOML xxx
