It’s my Birthday!

Yep, that’s right.  Today, Saturday, is the celebration of my entry into this world some 41 years ago. Right about now I’m feeling every second of it after starting a new exercise regime and finding muscles I’d forgotten existed.

Most of us celebrate birthdays with parties, pampering, crazy life-and-death activities, over indulgence of some kind, spending it with loved ones.

What should I do? What am I going to do?
Well the man is back at work and knowing this would be the case we had a little celebration while he was home – combining it with an early anniversary present.  Staying at the hotel we spent our wedding night, and simply chilling with quality us time – no kids anywhere.
It’s going to be pretty low key until later this afternoon. Some baking, go for my daily run and then get ready for a night with the girls.
I have a group of the most amazing friends here, no matter the combination of who’s there we always have a great time. And it usually means there is an over abundance of alcohol partaken. We need no excuse to get together – birthdays, not-saying-goodbye’s, weddings, just because really.

So celebrate with me in whatever way you please, have a great weekend

Alfresco Saturday – the morning after

7.30 am, rudely woken by 3 (still excited) boys
Damn it.
No alcohol involved, just busy, 10 year olds –
12 am Sat, 1 boy goes home sick,
2 am Sat, finally put my book down and turn off the light.
Feeling worse for wear – eating whole beans might just work 😉

Have a great weekend
