Happy Birthday To Me, I'm 103....

... OK, no, not really. Its actually my birthday tomorrow, and I'm only turning 29 ( though at the end of some days with two kidlets at home, I FEEL like I'm 103 ). I don't suppose that your 29th birthday is all that special, but in the interests of getting my blog on I thought I'd just post a little musing on another birthday reached.

Because, let's face it, another year older also means another year lived right? And I think I can say I really did my best to 'live' the past year - not just 'live' as in breath and stay alive, but ' live ' as in I tried to make the most of the opportunities that came my way; to really dig in and enjoy the little moments that make up my day-to-day life. Its a skill that I think that I've come to learn over the last almost-29 years, and I'm just now beginning to utilise.

So what does this, my 29th year, hold? What things do I have to look forward to? The little things, like taking my kids ( and Mick! ) to zee the new Wiggles in March; to drives around the zoo and trips to the playground; to seeing the new Superman movie ( ' Man of Steel ', directed by Zach Snyder.... Hurry up and be released already! ) and to date nights with my hubby. Plus there are the bigger things like a certain gorgeous baby-womans 1st birthday in August, my hubby 'Dirty 30 ' in November and a few days in Nelson Bay booked for late December.

So, on the eve of my birthday, here's to the big things, the little things, the sad and the happy things.... And here's to meeee!


  1. It sounds like you already have so much to look forward too this year. Just love Nelson abaya, such a great family holiday destination.

  2. Oh and whoops, a great big Happy Birthday to you!

  3. Happy Birthday!!!! I think 29 should totally be made a big deal out of it, celebrate the beginning of the last year of your twenties! If I hadn't been pregnant when I turned 29 I so would have had a massive blow-out! As it was I ended up having one in honour of my 30th last year, I just saved it for my friend's 30th three months later when I wasn't breastfeeding as much so I could truly enjoy a few too many daquiris! And enjoy them I did! Although not so much the next day!
