It's my birthday today, and I got what every girl wants to wake up to - 12 inches!! I mean snow of course, it wasn't a suprise to me - I've been expecting it, as I have often said snow season runs from my a friend of my mums' birthday to mine, ie Oct - Mar, albeit there have been a few sunny birthdays most of them have been snowy and today is no exception. There are some big snowdrifts outside my house which is weird because there is barely anything at the front yet I have a 3 foot high one blocking my back door!
So I woke up in anticipation of my birthday presents, couldn't wait to see what my beloved husband had bought me from himself and our 2 year old son, bearing in mind he had cake & balloons for his birthday last month, ........ I got a card!, granted he had excelled himself this year because he had actually written the card the night before and not the morning of my birthday, I shouldn't be upset because it's been like this every year for the last 10 years, but I am today, especially when I see other friends boyfriends and husbands make so much of an effort with lovely gifts and flowers, I'm not asking for much - just a balloon and present off my son would have been nice, so I'm sat here at the moment sulking at him - oh yes I will make him pay!!
Also a bit upset because although I love the snow, it has messed my plans up for a birthday night out, can't remember the last time I actually enjoyed a night out for my birthday and I was so looking forward to this one, I had even bought a dress for the occasion, but alas due to road closures and cancelled babysitters friends have had to pull out and I'm not looking forward to doing anything tonight, so it might have to be a night in on the Xbox with my family if they can get up the hill to me!
Thank goodness for my mother, she knows how to make me smile - I've got some personalised birthday cakes off her - with my edible face on them! I wondered what she was up to last week when she asked for a photo of me and now I know, edible fairy cake toppers, so at least I got birthday cake off somebody!
Meanwhile my snowed in friends are redeeming themselves by organising a Twitter #birthdaymission and asking as many celebrities as possible to wish me a Happy Birthday!
