Today my Favourite Things Friday is my Birthday. It isn't today though it is tomorrow. I really enjoy my birthday, basically I use it as an excuse to shop, not that I need an excuse to shop but it usually ramps up a bit in February. When I turned 40 I decided I needed to celebrate a lot and I decided to have a birthday month. Lots of going out with the girls for dinner and what not and generally enjoying myself.
In true Birthday tradition I went shopping yesterday, my favourite store Flower, is having a sale and nothing is over $50, so I got a few options, including a great pair of jeans which will have to be taken up a heap but they fit ok everywhere else. I have also got one of the stall holders to hold some jewellery for me which I will collect on Sunday, might even spring for a bit more.
My family (sorry the men in my life) don't get the birthday thing, my husband tells me you never tell me what you want and all I really want is a surprise… No actually what I want is for the family to know what is my perfect gift and get it without me having to tell them. Not going to happen you might say. Well it does, the quilting girls always know what I like and always get me something that I didn’t know I had to have.
To avoid the fiasco of last year we did head to the shopping centre last night, they left me to my own devises in the Pandora shop (BIG MISTAKE) so they could at least buy me a card.
