So yesterday was my birthday and I have hit the grand old age of 32 🙂 I had a typical motherly birthday of everyone sleeping late so the usual pre-school rush was a little more manic than usual, hubby in work from lunchtime till 10.30pm, kids in school and after school clubs, baby all bunged up, teething and really not in a happy mood and no cake. But I’m not complaining, I got to spend the day sat on my bum, snuggling and comfort nursing, watching episodes of Bones and munching on the choccies the kids bought me. What more could I want?
My mother also stopped in on her way to work with a batch of freshly baked scones, Welsh butter, posh jam and cream. They were very yummy and were scoffed before the day was out. Not just by me I might add!
I didn’t really have any presents to open other than a diary (I had picked out for myself) and the choccies but I do have some really cool presents.
Can you guess what my actual presents are?
They are very bloggy ones….?
I bet you didn’t guess right so I’ll tell you.
I’m going to Blogfest 2014 AND BritMums Live 2015!!!!
For those non-bloggers amongst you, these events are both blogging conferences. They are great way to meet up with other bloggers, learn lot’s of new things and connect with some brands. I am beyond excited that I can go to them both!!! I must admit I am also a little scared, but mostly really, really excited. Did I say that already?
But even after those fab gifts you know what would really make my birthday extra special? Put the icing on the virtual cake (being as I didn’t get a real one!) so to speak?
To get a bit more love from you wonderful people! I know you visit here and I love that you do! But did you know I also have a Facebook page? You can keep track of all the comings and goings here on the blog, plus extras. All you need to do is leave a like!
I also have a host of other social media accounts I’d like to connect with you on. From Twitter to Instagram and everything in between (I’m still a noob on Pinterest mind). I’d love to connect with you all, I even added all these handy little widgets to make it easy for you, you just need to click on them 🙂 —————->
Don’t forget ou can also sign up by email so you don’t miss any posts, unless you choose to of course 😉
As my not so little baby is turning one next week, I have been posting lots of cute photo’s right from when he was teeny on Instagram, so I thought I’d follow suit here. This is one from when he was 3 days old. I hadn’t long had him back from special care. You can see all the loose skin around his arms and chin. Also, the mouldings on his head were really prominent for weeks, you can just see them here.
How do you usually spend your birthday? What is the best gift you have ever received? Are you going to Blogfest or Britmums Live? Let me know in a comment below x
