Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone that has time to read this and isn't madly shopping, cooking and looking after kids. I did all my shopping a couple of weeks ago, but I really should start to think about what I am going to serve my family for Christmas dinner. It looks like the weather should be nice so I am thinking a casual BBQ with lots of fresh summer fruits for dessert will be the way to go.

In other news, it is my birthday today and I am now 28 years old. I have a bit to say about that, but I can't be bothered right now. All I can say is that I am feeling and looking old this year. I don't mind getting older, to me age shouldn't matter if you are happy, but I haven't had the best year. Let's hope that I have made a few significant changes to my life by the time I turn 29.

Like any good birthday, I have started this one hung over after some Christmas drinks with friends last night. My flat mate made me breakfast this morning and I am meeting a friend for lunch. I think the girls from work have organised a cake for me and then tonight I have a family dinner for Christmas/Birthday with my dad, step mum, brother and brother's girlfriend. So it will be a very busy day of eating- lucky I have been in training for this!

I am writing this from work and this is the first time EVER that I have had to work on my birthday. It isn't fun, I don't know how you people do it every year. I find it annoying that people want me to do things for them on MY birthday, it is just outrageous. I guess that is what I am getting paid for...

Anyway, I want to wish everyone that has read my blog over the past year or two a very happy Christmas. Thank you all for taking the time to comment and offer your support and a friendly message that never fails to brighten my day.

  13. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I've never been on your blog before but I saw a link to your blog on ANOTHER blog (really... I need to get a life) and the title of your blog TOTALLY caught my eye. I had an SOB say that to me years ago. He told me what a shame it was that I was so pretty & couldn't push myself away from the table. I wrote him a letter & told him what I thought about that... (he was a boss of mine)

    ANYWAY~ HAPPY BIRTHDDAY (mine is New Years Eve...) and come check my blog out sometime!


    Have a great day!
