On Friday I was on leave. I like to take a little leave around my birthday. I do it every year. Some me time. This distressed Arkwife somewhat since she had arranged a surprise delivery for me for my birthday. I arranged for a colleague to pick it up and Rudi fetched it from my building on his way home from work.
It was such a lovely surprise. It really made my day! Let me tell you, this Decadent Hot Chocolate with the dark chocolate pieces is the bloody business. Will be MOST awesome in chocolate chip cookies too! On Saturday night Sanita popped round to bring me my gift. She bought me essence wanna be your sunshine nail polish, a backup of Tip Top Rocky Road (my favourite glitter, I wanted a backup bottle) and a nifty gadget that holds your nail polish bottle at an angle while you paint to make it easier to get that last bit out. Rudi woke up earlier than usual on Sunday and made us bacon and eggs for breakfast. I got a kiss on the cheek as soon as I opened my eyes and a “Happy Birthday”. We were pressed for time though as we were on our way to church. We were late for church. So late that we had to sit separately as there wasn’t enough room in the mother’s room for all of us. Babyice was up and down in between me and Rudi the whole time. After church my aunt informed me that they would be late as there was another service her husband and son were to attend later the day. We went home and I took Babyice to the park across the road to play while PrincessIce slept a bit. It was nice just pushing him in the swing, helping him navigate the monkey bars (I still have to hold his legs) and watching him slide. He also brought me some flowers for my birthay <3
These kids hey. They will melt your heart. My family arrived, even later than anticipated. They bought me a hand lotion that comes with a key ring and an Oh So Heavenly body spritzer gift set. We had a braai. They left. And that was it. I decided to go big and buy some cupcakes for my birthday. On my credit card *gasp*. So at least there was cake. I did receive a very surprising phone call for my birthday. I posted about it on SM, but I think that is a blog post on its own. The previous day we also spent some time in the park. We had such lovely weather over the weekend.
Today Leebeesa gave me her gift. She bought me Essie Coat Azure nail polish, a pedicure set with some files and toe separators, a bangle that she made for me with some of my favourite purple heart beads and some nail art stickers.
That’s all she wrote.
