I turned 37 on Saturday. I can say, I honestly am not overly fussed by the whole Birthday thing. No, that's a lie. I love Birthdays! When they aren't my own. And it's not because I'm getting older (cue violins), because I am, I am 37 now! It's more my occasional social awkwardness that makes me feel uncomfortable with the attention. I try to keep things low key as to minimise the fuss.
Coder and the boys bought me a new lens for the Nikon, and a tripod. I badly needed both of those, so I was a very happy Birthday Girl. My Mum and Dad had sent me a parcel of clothes. How well does my Mother know me? She always buys me underwear because she knows I just couldn't be bothered buying it myself, some new PJs and a jacket.
My friends took (forced) me out to dinner, which was actually such a lovely evening, that we need to do that more often.
I had to give the new tripod and lens a whirl. Coder took the 2 older boys to Little Athletics. Pichu and I went into the paddock to remove some unused chicken wire to fix the coop, in order to keep the new babies safe.
I like blue.
What, is there something on my face?
Conveniently, the icing matched his top.
New leggings from my sister. So cool!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOPHIE!! Take all the attention and run with it girl! Don't focus on the numbers... My girlfriends and I always get together on each others birthdays and make a huge deal about it.ReplyDelete
I am so loving those leggings! I WANT THEM!
A tripod is definately on my list too :) and lessons!
I have been having some fun with the tripod! And it was my first play around with the self timer on the D7000.Delete
I don't really get the birthday thing, mainly cos I don't really get what's being celebrated. That you survived another year, that you are older than before, that you were born at all? Halloween, Xmas, anything else I'm there with enthusiasm but birthdays I'm just going thru the motions. But as the kick-ass stocking lady, I LOVE those leggings!!ReplyDelete
I think the kids birthdays are more symbolic to me now, I survived another year! hahahDelete
happy belated birthday to you!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you definitely won on the present front! woo.
And enough about those leggins, check out those pegs!!!!
I too have severe leg envy!
Oh yeah, one of the good things about having a Birthday, I can ask Hubby for a new lens!Delete
Happy birthday to you! Love love love the leggings! :) xReplyDelete

How funky are those leggings too!
Thanks Jess. Def loving my new lens!Delete
Maybe, just maybe.. I wont be so reluctant for them to organise a dinner.
oh those leggings are adorable, I don't have the kind of legs that can carry off all the pretty printed leggings that are around these days so I'm supremely jealous. Happy Birthday!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I think I may have a legging problem.. lol.Delete
I have 3 different prints now, and lots of solids, and some patterned ones.
Those tights rock (on you, I don't have the legs for them) and I love the blue icing faces.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Yep, we wont mention what colour it turned their #2's....Delete
Happy Belated Birthday! Agree with the other commenters, those tights rock!ReplyDelete
I love a birthday, I hope I never stop loving them. Unfortunately this year My hubby will be away and living in a foreign country means it will be very different this year.
I really enjoyed your post on iBot. I hope you can make up for it when he gets back.Delete
Happy belated Birthday Sophie! Best wishes for a beautiful year ahead!ReplyDelete

It didn't last long...something about a moist crumbly butter cake, smothered in brightly colouring butter icing.Delete
I smiled when you mentioned the parcel from your mum, so much like mine. I must say it sounds like a fantastic birthday. May you keep smiling all year long.ReplyDelete
Yep, every year, plus Mother's Day, there is always a parcel in the mail. And weeks early, she is the best!Delete
