I said I would share my birthday and here it is. It's more for a record for me because, now that I'm forty I'm sure the memory will start to go :)
The morning started off with a call from Paul wishing me a happy birthday which was lovely. But then he said he might not get to see me because he was working the next day; he'd told me earlier in the week that he had the next day off, so I was very upset. Best friend, Sarah, called and I told her how upset I was. Went to see my Mum and burst into tears because of the possibility I wouldn't see Paul - thought it was strange that she wasn't that concerned but only had a chance to see her for a few minutes and then I was going to my crop.
Arrived at the crop and Sandra came out to the car park to sing Happy Birthday to me, I burst into tears - at this point I must assure you that it was not her singing that caused the tears! Calmed down and went into the crop where I was greeted with this:
While I was sitting scrapping my brother, sister in law and nephews walked past so I ran - yes, actually ran - out to see them, but they had to rush off so I was left feeling a bit down. Basically I was tearful and feeling a bit sorry for myself all morning, no fun on your birthday :(
I went outside for some fresh air just after lunch and who should drive into the car park.....Paul! I was so pleased, it really made my day and yes there were more tears :)
In the evening me, Paul and Sam were going out to dinner with my friend Sarah, her hubby Chris and her daughter Emily and I was really looking forward to it now. I was just going to wear jeans and a t-shirt but Paul convinced me to dress up a bit, boy am I glad I did!
We went over to Sarah's where I opened some more presents before walking to the restaurant. When I went into the restaurant I was greeted by this:
Such an emotional but happy day and I know I am so lucky to have such great family and friends. Thank you all xx
