Ra whānau ki a koe, Bonne Fête à moi, Happy Birthday to me…
Yesterday was my birthday.
I got to sleep in. I got cuddles, the happy birthday song (in 3 languages!! te reo Māori, French, and English) and presents in bed.
My children bought me some LUSH stuff. They hate that store. Complained it was too smelly. But they went in and chose some lovely stuff just for me because they knew I loved it.
I was left to read my book all by myself for the morning. (Bliss!)
For lunch, I was taken to a new place called Yumm!! that makes pancake stacks with fruit and ice cream that was beyond sweet (too sweet!!) but was indeed, yum!!
Then we meandered for a bit at the local mall.
When we got home, my lovely hubby started washing the windows. Even the super tall ones that I can’t reach. How fantastic is that? He also did the laundry and the kitchen. My house seems brighter. I think we’re getting more sunshine through the windows now.
My fantastic father-in-law made his special lasagne for my birthday dinner.
Then the children & I played on the PS2 before they went to bed, and then hubby & I watched a movie together.
Fantastic day. 🙂 (And for once, hubby gave me something I really wanted – Acts of Service i.e., housework. I told him later that was the best present ever.)
Wanna hear “Happy Birthday” in te reo Māori?
