A Little Birthday Fabulousness....

....Happy Birthday....

....to me...!

....I would love to be waking up here in a leisurely manner....maybe about 11am....woken by a beautiful breakfast tray....after I have dreamt of....

....a handsome stranger....

....my favourite holiday location....

....a beautiful dress or two....

....and dashing young men bearing gifts....(on the day I was born, 23 April, my Dad likes to remind me that it was snowing in Wales as I arrived....) 

I shall, however, be starting off my day in bed with my children....doing the school run as fast as I can....meeting a friend for breakfast and coffee....

....treating myself to some flowers....

....did I mention how much I love birthday cake....

....popping in to the hair salon (and wishing they could make my hair look this fabulous!)....

....having lunch with one of my favourite lunch-dates, my 4 year old son, at the cafe in the local woods....

....then after a quick tea and no doubt us all having a turn at blowing the candles out, my daughter and I will be heading into town to the ballet....her first visit and my first for some years, I can't wait....the perfect day!

(My husband and I would have celebrated on Saturday with a special dinner but instead are going to a great friend's birthday party which should be a really fun evening....)

 
....I shall be making several birthday wishes this year....
and this will be my mantra for the year ahead....

Thank you as always for reading this week and for all your fabulous comments....have a wonderful week-end!

  2. Happy Birthday! Lunch with your son and the ballet with your daughter.... So perfect. Though George Clooney would be a nice addition!

  3. Happy Birthday!! My husband was away for my birthday recently and I took my children for lunch at a local restaurant and had a glass of prosecco and pizza and it was really rather nice. There is a lot to be said for a simple celebration xox Mind you, perhaps the icing on the cake might be George (minus Beard, what is going on with that).

  30. Oh, dearest Simone...HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL! ♥

    I hope your day is filled with joy, as you fill our's with joy every day! How wonderful that it was snowing in Wales on the day you were born, it makes me happy to hear because my heritage is Welsh, British, and Swedish. :) Sometimes I wish I could stay living in dreamy Europe forever... This is such a fun birthday post, what a beautiful room/bed in the 3rd photo, and I love birthday cake too. Enjoy a giant piece for me, ok?
