The Last of The Roaring Forties

My friend sent me a birthday greeting on facebook this morning, reminding me that this birthday is the last of my 5th decade. Sheesh.

Happy birthday to me :-(

And how will I spend this birthday, this tenth day before Christmas? Well so far I have loaded the dishwasher; taken No 2 Son in to work; received phonecalls; placed a Nutrimetics order. Now I'm off to work, then to the hairdressers with the BA and finally I have a Sunday School meeting tonight.

About as exciting as befits the end of the forties.

Tomorrow it will be 39C and I'm having some friends over to swim and play boardgames. Himself will be forced to play 'because it's my birthday'! That kind of makes up for today :-)

Hope you have a wonderful birthday today and a great party tomorrow!!

My birthdays are never that exciting either. On Friday I worked all day, went to the chiropractor and then met some friends for a happy hour in which most of them bailed and I sat by myself for a half hour. Fun times. At least my hubby and I went out on Saturday night for a dinner and date night to make up for it. :)
