My Birthday !

No sewing today - it's my birthday !!!

We don't usually make a fuss, birthdays are pretty quiet around here. But last week DH asked me if I wanted to go out to dinner on Monday. With my brain being not quite awake, my answer was 'what's Monday ?' LOL

This morning on the way to work he says 'call Sue & invite her to come with us' - ok, not unusual Sue & I have been friends since I moved to Montreal - OMG 22 years ago !, so I called & invited her. We arrived at the restaurant (a very good Chinese buffet which we both like alot and which we haven't been to in a long time) to find another couple of friends waiting for us. DH called to invite them and didn't tell me - I haven't had any kind of surprise birthday since I was a kid, so it was a really nice evening.

Now, my boss at work is something else, he emails our whole department (14 people) as soon as he comes in, in order to give them lots of time to send birthday wishes. He will also tell everyone he sees throughout the day if you're around. Your age is not a safe number for him to know (mine increased by 5 years today as he was telling people ). It's not a good department if you want your birthday secret or low-key ! LOL! Every month he also brings bagels & cream cheese one Friday for all of us to celebrate whichever birthdays fall in that month. He and I are this month (me today, him on the 23rd) - BAGELS ON FRIDAY !!!

All in all - a great day !
