In case you didn't know already, it's my birthday on Sunday.
It's birthday number 30!
I've had 29 birthdays so far, many of which I have no memories of, just photos taken by my parents, who were the age I am now in some of then #eekkkand then there are other birthdays that I do remember but have no photos of the occasion, mostly those during my teenage years when I had yet to discover a love of photography and my parents were deep into their love of videography!
When I was a kid, it felt like I always had the week before or the week after my birthday off school for half-term, but these days, the kids always seem to be off on my birthday. However, I also don't remember having a 25-hour birthday before my 24th in 2008 #thankyoudaylightsavings This year is a 25-hour birthday and I plan to make the most of that extra hour, as well as the chance to eat whatever I like. Oh yes, it seems the birthday celebrations all involve food; Saturday night Hubby and I are having an Indian takeaway, Sunday morning starts my 30th right with breakfast at our local Frankie and Benny's, while a carvery lunch is planned with my immediate family, and on Monday I'll be taking in some home-made cookies to work to treat my colleagues #fingerscrossedIdontpoisonanyone
To commiserate celebrate my 30th properly with friends and family, I've organised a night out to a local Murder Mystery event, on Halloween All Hallows Eve no less. I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun and it'll be so nice to be surrounded by some of my favourite people! I plan to get very drunk and spend the whole weekend recovering because it'll be the last time I get that drunk, because I can't be doing with weekends spent recovering from the effects of alcohol - wow, that makes me officially old, right?!
