They say it's your birthday...

The world did not end after all!

I turned 40 this week.

It was nowhere near as harrowing as I imagined it would be.

I worked on my birthday.

I got sung to and given a cupcake.

I even got a Happy Birthday sticker to wear on my shirt.

I imagined I would have a big birthday and I wrote about my plans earlier.

It didn't happen after all.  

We went to Nitro Circus instead.

You know what?  I was fine with that.

I really don't think I'm the Birthday Party kind after all.

I spent the day of my birthday (other than at work) with The Groom, The Princess and Little Man.

We had dinner from the service station.

I'm happy with that.

There were no real presents.

I got a push mower, because we needed one.

I'm getting a little dirt bike, too.

A second-hand one that will eventually go to Little Man when he's tall enough to ride it (and at the moment I have to point my toes hard to touch the ground when I'm sitting on it).

I shall have to learn to ride the darn thing now.

At least I won't be the odd one out - even The Princess rides, so if she can do it then so can I.

Happy Birthday to everyone else who has a birthday in March!


  1. Hey Barefoot, Happy Birthday!!! If I had known I'd have baked ya a cake. A big fat chocolate one. Lol. One of my friends had her birthday last week. I made her a beaded key ring and some cupcakes. Don't know which she enjoyed the most the key ring or the cuppies. Will post some photos of the key ring when I get them onto the computer.

    Hope you have fun learning to ride your new bike. A different friend, received a four wheeler as her Chrissie pressie, off her hubby. She was a bit wary of it to begin with, but, now absolutely loves it.

    Hope you are having an amazing week.
    Cheers, Deb

  2. Thank you Deb.

    I'd love to see some of your key ring pictures. If they're like your cards they will be lovely.

  3. Happy belated 40th birthday. Hope you had a great day. Thank you for my son's birthday wishes as well. Sorry I wasn't around earlier to wish you happy birthday, has been a really tough week. Have fun learning to ride your new dirt bike. Both of my children have ridden their cousins, but I am yet to have a go. Glad I am not the only one who likes a quiet birthday with just family, was starting to think I was the odd one out.

  4. Thanks, Sharon. I did have a good day. And you're not the odd one out, I'm sure there are lots more of us out there - somewhere...

    My bike arrives tonight but I won't get a chance to ride it until the weekend, providing it doesn't start raining again!
