An extremely late post but as I say, better late than never (:
What an amazing weekend. It started off with my mum and nieces video calling all the way from China 🇨🇳 to sing for me. Mum does it every year in person and even since she wasn’t here, she made a plan 😍❤️
I know I say this often, but I am so grateful for the people in my life.
A group of friends left work early to celebrate my special day with me. We didn’t go partying, or get paralytic drunk. Neither did we get high.
We went 10pin bowling and dodgem car riding! Yeap! 4 grown women. Oh and what fun did we have. You can tell you getting old when just that and supper get you so tired you can’t even walk. By 20:30 pm we were all exhausted. Laiyah, Amy and Lamz you girls are gems 💎.
My #Bae then traveled all the way from JHB in a bus just to spend the weekend in Durbs for my birthday. For many you’d be like so what’s the biggy? The biggy is that it feels so good to love and be loved. To have people do for you as you do for them. Many a time we just do because we want to and don’t expect anything in return. Which is a good thing. But when you get somebody doing just as much for you, it feels great.
Birthdays for me, aren’t about gifts. They’re about the beautiful messages and wishes , about spending time with the people who matter the most and doing things that actually matter.
We love to be spoilt though and my gifts hands down were THE best and well-thought out gifts ever.
Life is not about things; materialistic things, it’s about the simple, sentimental things. And I am so grateful that the people in my circle get that.
A weekend spent with people I hold very dear to my heart.
