Well, Amanda spilled the beans, so yes - today is my birthday. And I have to confess that I am a completely nutty birthday freak. I love my birthday....because, after all, how many other days of the year is the whole day all about ME? :-) Me, me, me......

Actually, that's not quite true. For the last 14 years, I have shared my special day with The Middle Child. My second-born decided that it was time to make his entrance into the world - 8 days late - on my 32nd birthday. I suspect that this was the doing of some higher power to deliver a giant dose of birthday humility to yours truly. Whatever, let me tell you that spending your birthday in labour then sweating and grunting with your feet tucked behind your ears while complete strangers stare at your nether regions is NOT my ideal way to spend the day. Oh, and I missed the Chinese banquet we'd booked for dinner too. But the little bundle at the end of it made it all worthwhile. And he's so sweet about it - he gets just as big a kick out of giving me a gift as he does from receiving them himself. In about Grade 4 or 5, his class were asked to write about what made them special, and you know what he wrote? I'm special because..... I share a birthday with my Mum. Aww.

So, today has been pretty good so far - I slept till almost 9:00am, got lovely presents, breakfast made for me (Choc-swirl fruit toast and cappucino....mmm), phone calls and emails wishing me happy birthday, a visit from my best friend, and I am actually not working today! The loot has been pretty fabulous too - jewellery, perfume, lingerie, Bernard Fanning's CD, this book and a couple of The Goodies DVDs (ah, memories...)

This afternoon, I need to drag out the Christmas tree and decorations, which will require the relocation of a large amount of "stuff". Then Mum's coming for dinner, and I think some wine may be consumed. I did drop a large hint to Bike Boy about a birthday cake too. Along the lines of: Make sure you get me a birthday cake! Subtle, eh?

Yes, I am spoiled - and loving it!
