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?
