Since my last blog, i’ve had a birthday, finally swirled onto a ‘Christmas rota,’ had the most amazing Christmas Eve and Day itself, followed by a very drunken ‘Boxing Day,’ to find myself right back at work. (However, it’s not as bad, as it’ snot as hectic, so I have plenty of days off in between, which means the world to Ruby, Junior, Ben and ofcourse Myself! Yippee!)
So, my birthday..and we’re going right back to Dec 19th.
I worked it, all day and it was the busiest day of work that I had ever recently encountered. I blood, sweated, smiled and milkshaked all the way through it…for what seemed like every minute of the entire day…HOURS. Yet, it wasn’t so bad. Infact…it was okay. I mean, i’ve never really had to work on my birthday before…ever…so it was a pretty new act of oddness for me. However, luckily, i had managed to make all my work colleagues feel bad for their little ‘Princess Wunna (lol) and well, I ended up having the most wonderful birthday ever! (Just so you know, I NEVER celebrate my birthday. I had a childhood of celebrating every single birthday I had, ‘party’ style. Now that i’m an oldie and not that much wiser…I wouldn’t go as far as saying ‘it’s just another day,’ as i’m far to festive and exciting than that. But, i nod and smile, with peace in my corset…knowing that i’ve had my time, i’ve enjoyed it…and being an oldie now actually rocks. So, i don’t really go for the ‘hoo haa’ of it all now, as i’ve done it for what feels like a million years. I think I enjoy feeling like a Granny. (I still don’t look too bad for my age… *Wiggle, Giggle.*) But i’ll rock a leopard print pension scooter, when i’m a pensioner…in diamantes.
Got to work and every single work mate that I passed, greeted me with big smiles, and a giant ‘Happy Birthday.’ They were all great, made me feel not so bad about having to plunge myself into the swirl of ‘busy at work,’ and not only that, but they also came a little gifts, yeah…little treats for me, which made me so happy, because it sort of makes you feel a wee bit adored…doesn’t it? 😉 I really appreciate those moments. I’m good like that. I might be smeared in ‘Diva,’ but i’m really really good like that. I remember all the little moments, where in which people have been quite positively lovely.
But yes, earlier in the week Danielle (who partook in a really shit ‘milkshake train’ with me on my birthday…love Danielle, even though my nickname for her is ‘Greedy,’) had gifted me with wine, chocolates and this AMAZING Clairebella tote bag, which not only had my name on it, but a cartoonified picture of me ON IT! I know! I knew what it was straight away…I knew literally immediately, as soon as I peeked into the open tear of the pink wrapping paper. I loved it. Amazing gift! I’ve already used it…EVERYWHERE! So, that set the tone for me being ‘happy at work for my birthday’ this year.
Then on the Saturday, which was the 19th, I was treated to more booze, more choccies, Jenna got me the perfect ‘Tequila Shot’ decorative ornament, that is currently hung on my Christmas tree. (So perfect.) Katie had bought me a cake and made me a story book, that she had folded into the word ‘DREAM’ (apart from she fucked up the ‘D’) and then I recieved a giant word art picture, a Vani’tea’ mug from Lorraine…(which is a mug that is made of Mirror, so you can see yourself in it constantly…and not only that, but it COMES WITH A PEN, that is cleverly disguised as a ‘LIPSTICK’ Dream much!!’ Then like the day couldn’t get any better, as it was filled with jobs, hugs, abuse, love, work and happiness…Florence came in with a mucky card for me, and the most beautifully presented giant potted and gift wrapped Begonia. It looked like a mini tree, all bowed and glamourous! It was amazing…and I loved it as it would be the sort of gift i’d buy someone. Plus, I got to walk out of work, after 8 hours, look like Miss.World with it…and looking like I completely rinsed the joint! 🙂
So happy. I have some really great friends.
But yes, I got home happy…and I hadn’t seen Ben all day. But i knew that he’d do something, even though he was trying to make out that he wasn’t going to do anything. But i can read Ben like a book, because we’re so close. He makes me laugh. He’s silly. (And i’m massively in love with him right now.)
I drove onto my drive, parked up…still decked out in my updo and work clothes…I swung open the door..( i enjoy to ‘swing’ a door open. It weirdly delights me) and well he rushed towards it, with his hair all done, looking all yummy…smiling…if not beaming, but with the door that leads to the dining room closed to.
So, I’m grinning and he leads me into the dining room to have a peek, as he steps back, to watch my reaction…and he had decorated the entire dining room, with very ‘Wunna’ bits of ‘ooh laa.’ There was a table clothed over with gifts upon it, champagne, scented candle alight, little pink, birthday girl balloons everywhere and then an absolutely GIANT ‘35′ in pink, helium balloons, floating upward, taking up the entire back of the wall. AMAZING!
And, then he presented me with a little gift bag, after I had opened up my big gift, that was filled with smellies, lotions and bath time goodies…. ( I was even delighted with the gift bag because it was pink lol)
But yeah, sorry i’m getting distracted…i opened it up and inside was little black box…with a silver bow on it…
I opened up the box and even he looked excited for me to see it…and it was was the most beautiful and the most delicate, little sparkly diamond necklace, that he had chosen and bought from a jewelry store, I think that day? Lol.
I loved it so much, I wore it straight away and haven’t yet even taken it off!
He’d also written me a little card that said,
You are the most amazing person I have ever met…../I love you with all of my heart,
Now, as you all know, I adore romance and the art of true love. l treasure all boys who are open beings of affection and expression…so it really meant so much to me.
I jumped into his arms, all gleeful and giddy. I jumped around the house, filled with ‘Thank you’s and love…
We popped open the champagne, enjoyed the rest of our the night together…and after hours of love, chitter chatter, gratefulness and just the pure happiness that settles your soul, without worry…we snuggled up in bed and…well…
Champagne is good for moments like that. 😉
(I feel really lucky, because in the love department i’ve completely found the man of my dreams. And it’s not because he’s this or he’s that , or he’s bought me a necklace…as in life…and i’ve been alive for ages now, boys have been boys with me…and they’ve done their best or worst to try to be impressive…but because we’re just best friends, who are madly in tune with one another. We’ll have little hiccups, up’s downs and moments…but it’s over in seconds and turns back to love and laughter. I’ll have a moan. He’ll have a moan. But I think we’re really lucky because we have each other and both of us are the type of people to loyally walk by each other’s side through life, filled with trust and just knowing that the other with always be there and not out of habit, or gain, but just out of love. We’re madly in love right now and it’s wonderful. PLUS! I feel so grateful to work with such tremendous people, who have to go through the same old motions as me everyday, but went out of their way, to make me smile for a moment…because they wouldn’t only just do it for the sake of it being my birthday, but just do it anyway, because they’re ace,)
I’m a really lucky chick…and i never take it for granted.
I’m also really old now…and it kinda really suits me. 🙂
