February 3rd

“A happy birthday is measured not in the amount of gifts one gets, but in the amount one is loved.” 
― Todd Stocker

Yesterday was my birthday, which is my excuse as to why I didn't update yesterday! 

There was also no Menu Monday this week because this is the week we don't have any money so we live on the leftovers in the freezer and whatever veggies etc are left.

Anyway back to my birthday.  Nothing too special happened in the morning, we went to buy a zip from the local fabric shop, alas they weren't open so we went to the bakers instead.  Don't worry I only bought a granary roll which I filled with fat free cottage cheese when I got home.

Obviously I had already opened presents! 
The darling husband gifted me a tablet! The darling daughter gifted me a tablet case.  Mummy dearest gave me the money for a one day photography course in March.  Parents in Law gifted me Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (well his healthy eating book!), Chicago on Blu-Ray and a stack of bamboo knitting needles.

Then off to my friends I went for weigh in and dinner.  Once there my two besties GMW and MSMS (I've mentioned them before here) they gave me their cards and then produced a big ol' present.  Well I'm not one to shy away from pressies! I opened it and OMGWTF do you think I found?  Only a pair of Irregular Choice shoes, WITH TAPE MEASURES ON! Like real tape measures, on real Irregular Choice shoes! 

Anyway I then had a bit of a sniffle over lovely lovely friends and lovely lovely presents and feel quite special! I did get weighed, lost another pound, so I'm not sure this diet is working for me either or whether I should go back to SW because the act of having to go somewhere to get weighed makes you make more of an effort (no offence GMW that your house isn't 'somewhere' but you know what I mean).  Still going to carry on with Menu Mondays though and still weighing etc...

So here is a little picture of presents.



What kind of things do you enjoy doing on your birthday, or do you prefer a lazy day?
