Also with the Charity, I haven’t given up but I'm going to contact head office and see what they say.
Today I'm feeling good for two reasons, the first is my birthday is coming…on May the 15th I'm going to be a big woman. I have been planning a long celebration and for once I'm looking forward to it.
Apart from 2005 (which is in my next post) I have never ever looked forward to a birthday I find it hassle and stress.
Everyone asks you what you are doing and what you have planned and it’s down to you to sort something out. Id love one day for someone to do a surprise or plan something for me I thought it would be this year but alas no…so I'm thinking that perhaps If I am blessed with children they might do a surprise 50th or 60th or something.
So this year my birthday week is going something like this (a lot of eating is involved)
11th May – Birthday lunch with a good friend and colleague, he has a gift for me :)
12th May – Birthday lunch with another colleague
In the evening I'm going to Yoga
13th May – Birthday lunch with two colleagues, one left our company a while back, one still works there and is a good friend
In the evening I'm going to the Salsa Club and will need it as I need to work off the three lunches.
14th May - Birthday Lunch with My Team
In the evening I'm going out to the Karaoke to dance and celebrate my birthday.
15th May MY BIRTHDAY - I'm spending the day with Mr Special, we both have it booked off and I'm not quite sure what we are doing yet.
16th May – I'm going on a Boat Cruise with all my friends, 19 are coming with a further 5 tentative I cannot wait but I don’t know what to wear
17th May – My entire family and Mr Specials Family are going to Lunch :)
18th May – Recovering.
So that’s what I'm up to, I hope it’s a fun/memorable week.
One of the other questions I get asked is “what do you want for your birthday?”
That’s always a hard one but I guess that this year all I want is to be surrounded by those who love me, to get a cake with candles on, to be sung to and if you really must get something then a Mercedes would go down well.
So…… What did you do for your birthday this year or what will you do if it hasn’t happened already?
What has been your most memorable one?
The other reason why I'm feeling good is because its 5 weeks to go until I go to Antigua!!! Whoo hooo!!
