It's my birthday on saturday and I've made DH organise a party (just because it falls on a saturday rather than a boring week day) But we've just had a pipe leak in the lounge! The carpet is sodden, we have a hole in the ceiling and damage to the walls. I don't know whether to just laugh or cry about it? sad

Take matters into your own hands. Make a fuss months weeks in advance. Throw a party. Insist on everyone celebrating YOU YOU YOU glorious YOU.

I do this. It's much more fun grin

mrsjay thats depressing, i got a photo of me as a bridesmaid about 5yo from my aunty in a card, plus a little pressie from my best mate who I ahvent spoken to in months as been so busy and a card and some chocs from the inlaws, then my friend took me out for a scone and coffee on her lunch hour, then my mum came round with a big bunch of flowers. I dont mind the weather got a woodburner not long ago so any excuse to light it.
Zap happy birthday smile

mrsjay Tue 14-May-13 15:42:49

mrsjay Tue 14-May-13 15:41:49

zaphod Tue 14-May-13 15:40:34

Thanks. Even the weather is depressing now...hailstones. Is it just me or didn't the weather used to be nice in May?

Happy birthday dita and mrsjay! There's another birthday thread over here with three people on it. That must be enough for a party, I reckon?

Quite right valium, my boyfriend got short shrift when he said 'I don't have to get you a card do I?'
He was all 'meh' about his birthday last week but I made a big deal about it and he ended up having a brilliant time.

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 14-May-13 10:31:50

I hate my birthday and Christmas. [Eeyore]

mrsjay Tue 14-May-13 10:29:34
