Birthdays


It was my birthday on Friday, well, when I say it was my birthday, it was actually mine and my husbands birthday... We were born on the same day, except he arrived exactly four years after me!  Our children have never seen anything odd in this, in fact when younger would always think it odd that other children's parents didn't have birthdays on the same day!

Anyhoo, he took the day off and I unchained myself from the sewing machine and we spent a lovely day at my favourite suffolk seaside town Aldeburgh




Lunch out and then meal out in the evening with two of our sons,  eldest is now teaching in China after travelling for 9 months, we managed to skype him which was good though.

The celebrations carried on over the weekend with a summer ball (nothing to do with our birthday!) and seeing friends and family and I'm meeting friends next saturday for a birthday meal too, so it just goes on and on! Hope you had a good weekend and that this lovely weather we're having carries on x

  1. Arrhh, Belated Happy Birthday to you and yours! How funny that you share the same day - rather special too and definitely a good excuse to extend the celebrations for several days more! Helen x

    1. Thanks Helen, it was funny for the first couple of years, but we don't really think anything of it any more... although my husband says it's always more my birthday than his! Jx
