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.

individual birthday cake made for me by a friend. Yay!

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?

    Have you seen the book that’s called “P*rn for Women?” It is full of glossy photos of men (clothed) doing things like cleaning the floors, washing dishes, caring for the baby, and doing the windows.

    Happy Birthday!!!
