So, this dreaded day has arrived. For those of you who read regularly or tweet or know me in real life, you will know how much I absolutely dread my birthday- which just happens to be today. I don't know why- but I have ALWAYS been like this, since I was really small. The first documented version of the birthday blues hit when I was not even school age.
If I've been sour or horrid towards you over the last few weeks, please understand that it is merely my birthday blues getting in the way of a good time. For that I apologise, but want to warn you, if you continue to know me, this could be a yearly occurance!
Luckily I've taken the day off work so I can mope- and have tried to incorporate suggestions into how to make my birthday better. So, I am trying to ignore the fact that my birthday is today, and have booked at Sake for lunch- something I have been looking forward to for a long time. Next year, if I'm feeling even more confident that I can beat the B.B's, I may even attempt a festive themed gathering to coincide to keep my mind completely off the whole thing!
Not sure about any other plans, but maybe I'll just take it easy, try to forget how old I'm turning and pretend that today is just an ordinary day. Except it isn't.
Sorry for such a solemn post, but I must go now. My moping awaits!!
Photos of Sake coming soon- something which I am super excited about! In other news- I made a really simple but lovely breakfast on the weekend- so thought I would share with you. Poached eggs, with field mushrooms and chives, served with tomato jam and unknown green spinach type thing grown in my own garden.
Eggs came from A & T Poultry (Noosa Farmer's Markets)
Mushrooms came from Mushroom lady at Noosa Farmer's Markets
Green stuff and chives came from the garden
Tomato Jam from Comfort at my Table
So, tell me readers, do you dread your birthday like I do, or love it- and celebrate a whole birthday week like some of my friends?
