Happy Birthday to meeeee!

Woohoo, 34 years ago today I was born! Erk, did I really say 34?! I must be 34 because the 6pm news isn't nearly as boring as it was when I was 14 (or even 24)! I must be 34 because I worry about the cost of my mortgage instead of how much pocket money I'll get. I must be 34 because I can remember the New Kids on the Block!! And I can actually remember playing "afternoon tea" with my grandparents!!


Due to the proximity of my birthday to Bonfire Night, I have always associated fireworks with my birthday, in fact, there is a family story where I apparently once said on a birthday something like "I wake up, have a party, have presents, have fireworks and THEN I'm five" - so clearly I don't actually turn 34 until I have had fireworks on my birthday.

This year the fireworks promise to be even more spectacular as Mum has got tickets for us to go and see fireworks at Leeds Castle, so we will wrap up warmly and take a flask of hot chocolate and stick a few buns in our pockets and go and enjoy the fireworks - hopefully I will be able to show you some photographs later - probably for Show and Tell on Sunday!

Updated: to add that someone else is 34 today - imagine my surprise when I found another blogger (who is a twin!) that shares EXACTLY the same birthday as me!!
