Happy birthday cake flowers brew wine

Have you got any plans for later today or weekend?

My family forgot my actual 40th too (despite my mum and Dsis being LPs for years themselves).
DD was very excited. I suspected this would happen to planned a family birthday celebration the following.

Happy Birthday OP! have some flowers

I'm sorry noone rememberered your day - are your kids old enough to make a fuss of you following a subtle reminder? Mine are 6 and 8 and would make me a card if I reminded them. I have my 40th in a few months time and really want to forget all about it though wink

Happy Birthday.

I too am a lone parent, I forced my child to remember and get me a present for my 40th. We were camping on my actual birthday and amazingly all the people I was with on the site (lone parent holiday!!) got me a cake, a card and some fizz.

The trick is to tell everyone you know, loudly and often, that it's your birthday and shame them into making it a good one. I do it every year!

Thank you flowers
they're tweens & too wrapped up in friends & homework etc
dd mentioned it on Saturday but nothing this morning!
Dm is in hospital & df worrying about her.
I think it just highlights how lonely I am, didn't seem to matter not having a group of local friends when I was married, I had someone by my side, we had eachother's back.

Thank you for your happy birthdays MNers smile

Happy 40th! Can you do something this evening, like taking the children out for tea somewhere? They should be mortified they've forgotten!

Captainladder Mon 09-Jan-17 10:56:18

Agree to that you should take kids out for a birthday tea.
