I took many lovely phone calls from all my relatives who live so far awaY,and I also received so many emailS from overseas that I felt extremely special!! I had a quiet day though which is just how I like it!!
Absolutely nothing. I don't really give a tinkety-tonk about birthdays but my husband gets really upset if I don't celebrate my birthday, so for my 39th I gave in, planned a big doo and it all ended disastrously (too long a story to go into here!) so when my 40th hove in sight, I told everyone to get lost and leave me alone and they did and it was lovely.
That would be today....had many emails, texts and p calls from friends....had lunch out at the Crown in a lovely rest, went to the Chirpopractor!!!! and now I am waiting for a friend who said she was coming over later thisevening,
Last year I was sick in bed. I had food poisoning for about a week and it was the sickest I have felt for a very long time. Felt too ill to even open presents. The previous year I spent in Westmead Childrens Hospital fracture clinic. This year is my 50th ... whatever could be in store for this big one !!
I had a 70's themed fancy dress party for my 50th back in Aug. Had the best night ever with all my friends & family. If it's not a milestone birthday, hubby & I always make the point of going out for a nice lunch somewhere. If it falls on a weekday, I always take a leave day so I don't have to work on the day. Who wants to go to work on their birthday?
As my Birthday coincided with Intnl Womens' Day, I joined a number of Ladies for a High Tea at a private Club, where we had an authoress talk about the books she'd written, of women's' contributions in WWI & WWII (separate books).
It was all very convivial, & most enjoyable. The ladies' at my table I hadn't met b4, but we 'got on' very well & had many a laugh!
It was a lovely day all up!
It was my 70th birthday and the first since my husband died. A bunch of girlfriends organised a day out at a well known retro/antique centre in Brisbane where we also had lunch in their diner. Great day and a lot of fun.I love the art deco period so had a great day looking through their range of goodies.
We stayed home, as it wasn't a very nice day. then we went to our local restaurant, (on foot) for a lovely meal, except the dessert.wasn't all that exciting. I'll have another birthday meal with my 2 sisters, in August as well, for our 3 birthdays.We do this now, instead of 16 of the family going out to for a family dinner, to celebrate.
I've just found this question agin. I had another birthday, nearly 2 months ago. I opened my birthday cards, then we went to a local cafe, shared an Eggs Benedict, then shared a large plate of over sweet pancakes. We then went down the road to our local art galley, had a latte each, then looked at 2 exhibitors. On our way home, we called into our local cemeterie's Open Day, but most of the stalls had already packed up, but we were still able to do a tour of the crematorium, which we found interesting. That evening we bought fish & chips for dinner, as the takeaway was within walking distance of our house. A simple fun day, for the 2 of us!
