Best birthday gift ever

I turned 34 on Tuesday this week (still trying to work out how that happened!).  I’ve reached the point now where my own birthday is pretty low-key…it’s all about the kids’ birthdays now, and I don’t mind that at all.  Husband and I did go out for dinner & we had great night, and next week we’re having pizza with a few close friends.

Gift-wise, the family got me just a couple of small things: Sohum candle currently making my hallway smell gorgeous, and Diorshow mascara (rare treat) that makes my eyelashes smell like roses! 🙂  

But I get more pleasure from receiving a handmade card by Mr.4 than I do from any material things.  I just don’t want lots of ‘stuff’ anymore. 

Simple experiences are what I appreciate now – like a delicious meal, really good chocolate, a cup of tea with a good book, a long bubble bath, going for a leisurely walk on a sunny afternoon.  

Anyhow, I already have the best gift ever…

Two gifts, actually.

Because when you have two happy, healthy children, what on earth else could you wish for on your birthday?

  1. So glad you had a great birthday. And, I AGREE! I love both Sohum and Dior and would really prefer quality over quantity myself. What beautiful little blessings you have. I love that photo of you together.
