 Today is my birthday! I wasn't going to share it here as it can seem a bit ... I don't know what! But I decided too as this is the first birthday ever that I am away from my family. Unfortunately plans haven't worked out and I couldn't go home or they couldn't come up. But it's ok, really. I will spend today at work, which is also unsual for me as with the work I do I usually take the day off on my birthday. So instead of staying home by my lonesome I'm off to work to spend time with my newly adopted family.

I never really enjoy my birthday, and this one being my 35th is a struggle. I'm finding myself asking the same question "is my life where I wanted it to be at 35?" The answer is no, but before I get all negative and such... life may not be what I thought it would be but it's still pretty great!

But to put an smile on my face today the phone line guy turned up this morning at 8am to FINALLY get my internet all connected and running perfectly! Now that's a good start to a birthday.

What do birthday's mean for you?

  1. Aww a very happy birthday to you Sarah!

    I know how hard it can be to spend a birthday away from your family... I've been away from my family for my birthday ever since I moved to Australia two years ago... It's a sad time but the good news is it gets easier with time.

    Make sure you treat yourself reaaal good to add a bit of joy to your special day!


  2. Happy, happy birthday! This year was my first year without my family as well, but it ended up being wonderful and I'm sure yours will too! Love that quote. :)

  3. Happy Birthday!!

    I'm turning 30 next month and have nothing planned yet, oops!

    I've spent a few birthdays away from my family, they are tough! Make sure you put your feet up tonight and relax. xx

  4. Happy Birthday to you I hope all your dreams and wishes come true xxx

  5. Happy birthday Sarah!! I hope you are having a lovely day. I'm not a huge birthday fan, usually I have dinner with my family. I turn 40 in a few months but doubt I will do anything special :)
