- Thankful thursday
At the beginning of the month I turned a grand old 24 years old. I'm sure I should start investigating anti wrinkle creams. Jokes (can't decide if I'm joking or not) aside, I didn't know what to expect from my birthday at all, I didn't exactly have any plans right up until a few days before, which I must admit, made it look like a bleak prospect. It was made worse by people I know asking what plans I had and made me feel a fool when I answered the truth of, "nothing", - actually the only plan I had were to eat an intire box of macaroons. In the end it turned out to be one long weekend of celebrations. A three day birthday, that's one more day than the Queen! I won't bore you with all the details, but I saw close friends Friday and Saturday and then family on Sunday. That's a crazy amount of activity for me, I'm so thankful that my chronic illness gave me a break as it were and didn't effect me too much more than it normally does. I feel so touched by the generosity of those around me. I received so many presents, and was so touched by the effort my friends and family put in. I even found energy to work with my mum on a babycham birthday cake. It was pretty easy to do and didn't take much time especially with my mum doing all the hard work, I was just bossy and incharge of decoration. The result was amazing - even if I do say so myself! I love deers, and have had a little obsession with the babycham deer since my early teens.
Since all the celebrations I've been very quiet, taking it easy, but I think it was all worth it. I never did get that box of birthday macaroons though, that's a gift I still owe myself.
