I’m thirty you guys!
Life has been a litttttttle crazy! You can probably tell because I’ve been more quiet on the blog?! I came back from my trip and life went straight back to normal. It’s tough being a thirty year old, you know?!
Firstly, all that “turning thirty” fear was for nothing! I don’t feel any different, I don’t have a single wrinkle and nothing drastic has happened, except for the fact that I went to the office on my actual birthday. This was a problem because I declared my birthday as a national day of rest, years ago. I had a tough meeting which kinda put on a downer on the day, but I had the most incredible time celebrating with friends the Sunday before and I caught up with a spa-treat just before the weekend.
When I wrote my last post, I was unsure of whether I wanted to do something or not. I was so tempted not to celebrate, but in the end I decided to go with a girls garden luncheon at our house. I sent out the invite then got too busy at work to get to the actual planning; eventually I put it together in 2 days with the help of friends and my mom.
I personally don’t like birthday dinners, cos I feel like you’re stuck at the head of the table the whole time and not able to mingle with everyone and get involved in other conversations, so I opted for a bubbly-picnic, which worked well and gave me that relaxed, social feel.
A few of my friends got together to surprise me with a camera, I’ve been dyiiiing for one for months! I also got a dress, LOTS of bags.. maybe 10 or so, books and perfume. Spoilt girl!
