Birthday surprises!

Nothing to report regarding NaNo, but I have added one more idea to my PiBoIdMo list of ideas now totalling 22 on day 16.

Today when I got up I walked into the living-room and there were … um …  many…  pink balloons tied up by pink cord and strung in the living-room and dining-room. My husband got them put up as a birthday surprise for me.

My sister and I went to a wonderful craft fair this morning where I bought a few Christmas presents. Then later my family had a birthday supper for me at Dad’s … thirteen of us there … and lots of special birthday balloons, bouquets of flowers, cards and gifts. The one they all contributed to is an album full of pictures and memories. They had me crying from the start when I first opened the album. There were pictures of Mum and me; Mum passed away five days after Christmas of 1997. Each page was for a member of my family .. and me. So sweet and special. I love them all! Plus, we face-timed with my daughter who lives in Alberta, so she was part of it with us.

Today was a special birthday and a very special day. 🙂

Do you have special days like that?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!

  1. Happy Birthday! I’m so glad it was made special by your family.


  2. A very happy Belated **th Birthday (Penblwydd Hapus) Lynn. I’m so pleased you had a good day despite the tears. I too was given a memory album for my 18th(ish), two years ago and it’s fantastic not just to look back on those days but to be reminded of the day I was given it.
    So glad to hear your Dads not superstitious and you all got through the meal- knock on wood.
    Sending Massive Hugs xxxx


    • Thanks, David, for the Welsh greetings! I used to have a neighbour from Wales, a war bride.

      Even the birthday cards I received from each of my family so touched my heart. I certainly felt loved, more than ever before because of it being so much at once. A very memorable evening.

      My dad isn’t superstitious with thirteen of us at table. 🙂 I doubt he even thought anything of it.

      Thanks for the hugs, David. (((Hugs))) back


  3. Glad you had a great day. You deserved it!
