It’s my Birthday!!

It’s my birthday today. The grand age of 26.

I don’t know if I love birthdays or just don’t care, I just cant make my mind up. I’ve gotten to the stage in life where I’m already starting to forget what age I am and have to think of the year we’re in before figuring it out.

When birthdays come around, I always end up reminiscing on when I was younger and would get bouncy castles or go the Fun House. Being a twin, he would have all his friends, and I would have mine and then we’d also have all our cousins and it would be the best day ever! Not forgetting all the great presents we used to get.

What were your best birthdays?

My 25th birthday was actually quiet good. I was in Amsterdam with a bunch of people I didn’t know a few weeks prior, and it was the best night ever! I always remember the biscuit-type cake that they got and the sparkling shot of alcohol that they sang Happy Birthday with before I downed it.

Weird how much happens in a year. This year, I’m not doing anything major. Getting the traditional curry takeaway with mam, then cocktails with the bestie and another dinner with my dad.

I got doughnuts instead of a cake…yum!



Do you guys miss birthdays as much as me? Or am I just weird?

Happy Birthday To Me!!!

I’m the big 2-5 Today!!! Not feeling old in the slightest, just up and onward now!  

When I woke up, my sis sent this pic which is the two of us inside the Guinness Storehouse just before I left for Amsterdam. Miss her smelly face. [and she’s gone back to Australia, so won’t see her for a while now]

I got a lovely Dutch biscuit cake today and decorations were placed around the office which was really sweet…

Also got the most awesome card in the history of cards!!!   

Isn’t it pretty? I love it!!

My dad text me [as tradition has it] on the minute of my birth [which turns out to be 4:24am] and so at 5:25am [Amsterdam time] I was awoken by a swarm of messages beeping one after another from him.

The noise woke Lauren up who mumbled ‘someone’s popular’ before rolling over and trying to get back to sleep. Lucky her! I didn’t, it was too late for me to try to get another wink of sleep- so I do what I do best- I daydreamed while the rest of the house was fast asleep.

My twin text me this morning as well…drunk of course… asking how it feels to be old and that the dog is missing me something terribly as he’s even getting excited when he comes home [him and the dog are close, but the dog loves me more and so my bro usually get’s the cold shoulder from him]

I did all my birthday drinking last Friday, then subsequently missed the whole of Saturday with a hangover. So, for the first time in a long while, we got the night off from doing anything and I’m writing this post and probably going to do some sort of writing while Lauren is binge-watching Game of Thrones [I’m trying not to spoil it]. She’s sprawled on her bed and occasional curses or mumbled her discontent with the characters. I’ll keep my mouth closed, I would hate for someone the spoil it on me, and I’m going to go either back to writing or do something so unproductive that it doesn’t really matter what I do.

Well, toodles for now.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!!
