I felt very loved and special on my birthday. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

On Tuesday it was my birthday and I had the best day....
Before kids birthdays were all about having fantastic nights out now with kids they are so different but I think I like birthdays better now....Kids really do make them special.

On My Sunday Photo post I showed the two bags of presents that the kids and my fella Stu had bought and lovingly wrapped. Ellie has a thing about doing birthdays properly and was determined that I wasn't opening the presents until my actual birthday....I got told off so many times for trying to sneak a peek. hehehe

On Monday Ellie was off school sick again....She got up, dressed and complained of feeling sick but I made her eat breakfast....We got as far as just before the school gates and she threw up. Back home we went. (She was fine by the next day). While chatting to her she came to the conclusion that she didn't really like the idea of getting up earlier on Tuesday morning for me to open my presents so I was allowed to open them on Monday evening. Hooray! I felt very spoilt!

I had a lovely day on Tuesday....I went out for lunch and had my first Christmas dinner of the year, I got myself some new pj's and had a special delivery from Jayne who blogs at Sticky Mud & Belly Laughs

Jayne had read my birthday wishlist blog post and bought me something off that! A slow cooker!!! I have spent the last couple of days finding recipes and getting very excited about what we are going to be eating....I have half my meal plan for next week planned already. lol

Stu had managed to change his shift at work so instead of starting at 4pm he started at 6pm which gave us a couple of hours together as a family.....It was perfect! The kids were being lovely and very helpful around the house....

 By the time Stu got in from work just after 10pm I was starving. I had only had toast for tea because I was still full from lunch. The last treat for my birthday was a takeaway. We got pizza!

I felt very loved and special on my birthday. Thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday.


  1. I'm so glad you had a lovely birthday, everyone deserves to be treated. I'm sorry I didn't get to wish you happy birthday on the day, it turned out to be the day I spent in A&E with Star :( So I'll wish you a belated Happy Birthday now xx

  2. A belated Happy Birthday! It all sounds just perfect! I love my slow cooker, have fun with yours. I'm glad Ellie's better now and that you were allowed to open your presents earlier! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  3. Hi Kim, a belated Happy Birthday! Well done for not sneaking a peek at your pressies beforehand, although in this house you'd have to have waited until the evening of your birthday to open presents! It's odd I know, but it works for us and keeps the birthday person on their toes.... How lovely of Jayne to send you a slow cooker. I have three and wouldn't be without. My favourite thing to cook in them is soup, but they are brill for loads of things... Try slow cooker hot chocolate for Christmas. There are loads of recipes on Pinterest. Even I liked it and I don't generally enjoy hot chocolate.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
