I hope you …

Today I’m another year older and bolder. Today is also the first day in months that it is rainy and rather gloomy. I’m ignoring that by watching a favourite movie or two, a beverage in each hand, stuffing my face with food I’m usually cautious of, spinning with arms wide open and fancifying my nails. Nails first though, then booze. Word to the wise; don’t do it the other way around. Especially with gel nail polish. Learn from my mistakes. 
Thanks to incredibly adora-balls husband who braved the weather this morning, I had a croissant with tomato, mozzarella and pesto and a carrot cupcake fresh from the bakery for breakfast. F*ck yeah. 
So, what are your favourite things to do on your birthday? Boozy breakfasts, couch marathons, or fancy restaurants? Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy your weekend and it isn’t too rainy. I have every intention to spend the rest of my day much like so –

xx A

    Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Alex, Happy Birthday to you. Wishing you a wonderful day and year ahead filled with Happiness & Hydrangeas & dreams turning into business reality!! Yippe for the hubster! lol um yes at the gel and doing the nails before the booze. Birthdays and me, I like the fuss lol and depending on the day it depends on what I do. But one thing is for sure the day is all about me.

    Happy birthday for yesterday, from the Lumberjack and me! Hope you enjoyed your birthday fun – sounds like you had a good day planned!
    What I like doing is eating lots and opening presents! Last year my birthday was rubbish – we'd both booked the day off to find something nice to do, but were both really ill with some coldy/fluey thing. I'm still bitter about it now, nine months later!
    Hope you're still celebrating today – gotta make it a birthday weekend, not just one day! 😉

    Thanks guys. Yous are all the sweetest 🙂 You'll be happy to know the celebrations continued well into Sunday and there was much lounging / eating still to be had on Sunday. I milked it. Totally.
