Nope, not the kids.. It’s me.. I’m one year older.. and I hope wiser..
There were no romantic gestures or flowers from hubby, no elaborate celebrations, extravagant surprises, etc.. but I’m not complaining…
With FB, more pple were aware that it’s my birthday… I received many birthday greetings from friends, colleagues, ex-schoolmates, ex-colleagues and even ex-pupils from another FB account.. There were greetings from my family, relatives and friends on whatsapp too.. I appreciate every single one of them.. thanks for taking the time to send me your blessings and greetings!
I even got a pleasant surprise when I got to my desk in the morning!
Lovely colleagues shouted out birthday greetings to me throughout the day and each one of them warms my heart.. I’m grateful to have such sweet colleagues..
After school, hubby had lunch with me and sent me back before he went back to school for his CCA.. simple but lovely gesture…
Since there was time to spare, I decided to try out a new recipe when I got home..
While waiting for hubby, I also napped for a while and even had time to catch up on my reading! Really a fruitful day so far..
Hubby picked the kids after work and showered before we went out for dinner..
We had a scrumptious Japanese vegetarian dinner at Zen @ Fortune Centre…
After a really filling dinner, we went to watch the laser show at MBS.. We took a leisure stroll before and after the show to help us burn off some fats.. hee..
But right after the show, my darling son told us he was hungry and that he wanted to eat doughnuts!
We bought some from 7-11 and the kids had a good time enjoying the doughnuts… they entertained us as they devoured the doughnuts.. 🙂
After that, we went home… Just that.. a simple but fulfilling day.. Not even a birthday cake but I am counting my blessings… I have 1 practical hubby (of cos I can’t have 2 rite? Hee), 2 lovely kids (would love to have another :p) who make me laugh, 3 wonderful siblings who give me constant support and all the wonderful friends and colleagues around me.. what more can I ask for?
Oh, before I forget, some dear friends actually held a joint birthday celebration with me with a cake a few days earlier and we even took a family portrait! Oh.. we also had a mahjong session and I won! :p
I’m a blessed woman!
