Yes it was my birthday yesterday! Thank you everyone for the birthday messages, emails, gifts and flowers! Big, warm hugs to you. I really appreciate it.
So what did I get up to?
Most of you know that my husband has been overseas for a couple of weeks. Well he’s back! Best. Present. Ever.
And after 4 weeks away from home… after traveling for 36+ hours… my husband woke up at 6:30am on my birthday and made me pancakes. What a sweetheart.
My boys picked flowers for me, wrote me letters, drew me cards and showered me with kisses and cuddles and gifts. And they sang to me! All of them! It was so cute.
One of my sons bought me a Jamie Oliver 30 Minute Meals cook book. I was very impressed he remembered that I was drooling over it a few months ago.
My other son gave me a fluffy bathrobe (a personal joke between him and I).
I also got a guitar! I have been going on and on about how I want to learn the guitar… and now I’m so excited to start.
In the morning, I had a bit of “me time” and took a quite stroll by myself at the river, in the gorgeous winter sun.
In the afternoon, I did a bit of shopping and had lunch with my parents. We ate a heavenly Penang laksa. Omg it was so good.
In the evening, I cooked a big yummy meal for my family, and topped it off with a chocolate cheese cake with drippy chocolate sauce.
I had a really, really lovely day… and I am slightly embarrassed to say that I have more special events spread out over the next few weeks. Ok I’m not that embarrassed.
I’m feeling very loved.
And it’s grand.
