It’s my birthday at the end of month. Two years from 40!!!
Happy that I’m alive but I don’t do big birthday bashes.
I am indeed a low-key birthday girl.
The past few years have just been family only.My greatest fear? I would invite people to my birthday party and they would not turn up. The only party I had was when I was seven and only two people came to my party. Perhaps I was scarred for life!!
Silly really but it has meant that I have never had birthday drinks with a group of friends and my family have never set up a “surprise party” for me. I was always happy with home cooked meal of chicken, jellof rice and a bottle of super malt.
Have I missed out ? I am not sure. I was always just glad to be alive!
I think perhaps my favourite activity on my birthday is taking pictures of myself!!!My excuse? “I want to remember what I looked like when I was x years old”
Anyway – I am always glad I made it through the year and look forward with hope and gratitude to the next one.
Maybe if all is well at 40 I will have a big birthday bash…
