oh dear you are in a bad way. Mind you I would feel like that too if dh didn't even give me a card - can you make him feel really guilty?

Not sure what to say as the day is nearly over. Hope tomorrow is bit brighter for you.

Happy birthday! Can you open a nice bottle of wine for yourself, at least?

Maybe champagne, I think you've earnt it for losing the weight alone.

Grab your DH now & go shopping together online for a size 12 nightie, that can be your prezzie. ... After you get the nightie, Do a before & after picture with the size 20/12 nighties & blow up the photo so you can be proud of yourself for losing all that weight.

Happy Birthday KatieMac - sorry you've had a pants day. I'd be upset if I didn't at least get a card either.

Oh happy birthday hun!!!

Thank you for what you did to me.. I'm sorry it added to the workload.

lunavix Thu 05-May-05 21:21:10

uhr for me not to me!

KatieMac Thu 05-May-05 21:22:23

Thanks everyone....I'm obviously having a "pity me day"

I will get over it

thanks again...I may go to bed early

I would, ahem, mention this to my dh if he was so lax! But hey, don't worry about the silly size 20 nightie - just look at it and be extra happy and proud about all that weight you have lost. Fantastic! I am envious!
I think you definitely deserve that champagne.
Happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY lithe, lissome and lovely skinny lady!

1.Happy birthday KM, pour yourself a drink and (8) relax.
2. Sounds normal to me - you're a Mum
3.Congratulations on the weight loss, that is a HUGE amount, now get out the chocolates and celebrate! Oh, and give MIL the nighty back for her Christmas present!
4. Also sounds normal
5. Learn to say no (I should practice what I preach)
6. Never say never, strange things can happen you know!
7. Get DD to bed if she's not there already.
1. again If your DH is anything like mine you might not want a birthday pressie anyway - portable vacuume cleaner anyone? Flourescent blue bath salts? Spoon rest WTF? No takers? I thought not!!!

moondog Thu 05-May-05 21:38:54

lol at the spoonrest present!
Ahhh,katiemac,sorry it's not been great but actually the nightie thing is quite cheering. Imagine if it had been too small and a size 20!!

It was my 38th birthday yesterday.Far from home and friends and family so quiet but dh and I had a party with the kids. Musical statues,hide and seek,cake and candles and balloons,the lot!!

Great laugh!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday KatieMac I know I don't know you and I am fairly new to MumsNet but I do feel that most people on here are genuine So you've a page of greetings to cheer you up. In a couple of days when you feel calm, just ask DH how he would feel if it had been his birthday and you forgot?

zebraX Thu 05-May-05 21:44:32

Buy this nightie, I dare ya'

KatieMac Fri 06-May-05 21:15:17

Thank you all for you kind thoughts and well wishes.......I didn't have a much better day today (I'll explain on another thread) but I feel much brighter and accept that days like this come & go - it wouldn't have been so bad if it hadn't been my birthday.

Thank you all again - I really appreciate it - LOADS.

MarsLady Fri 06-May-05 21:16:11
