Happy Birthday to Me: (Almost) Wordless Wednesday

The day began with me finding a silver hair in my eyebrow.
Ah, 36.
Am off to a great start.

Darling Le Husband ushered the girlies into the kitchen where I was presented with a beautiful bunch of hyacinths, a voucher for a pampering facial and massage,  and a pretty little box wrapped in glittery gold paper. Katrushki proudly gave me a drawing crumpled around a 20 cent piece.



Inside the box was a lovely necklace enscribed with my name, "Jessica".
You see, I'm 36 now and am renowned for bouts of forgetfullness ('Mumnesia', I call it). 
At least I'll never forget my name.


My mother popped round and surprised me with some cookbooks. 
(Need a bit of help in the culinary department, do I, hey Mummy Dearest????)


Mother Dearest then took me out to brunch for some delish  Ricotta and Blueberry Hotcakes. Yum!


Katrushki and I snuggled up by the cafe's warming fireplace.


I am now deliriously happy lying in bed while fabulous Mr WhoaMamma does the grocery shopping and school pick-ups. My birthday wish was to have a day off cooking and cleaning. So far, so good.

Darling sister has offered up her babysitting services so I foresee lots of sangria and cocktails in Mr & Mrs WhoaMamma's future tonight. Olé!

I have a feeling 36 is going to be the best year yet!


What's been your favourite birthday so far?



Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys  and Twinkle in the Eye for Wordless Wednesday!

Oh, that does sound like a fabulous birthday! Mine is coming up in a few weeks' time and there are three days of festivities planned so far!

Next year is my Big Four Oh My God so there will be some partying to be done.

I found a silver hair in my eyebrow last year. Plucked that sucker straight out. Now have a massive gap. Life is a cow sometimes!

Happy birthday lucky lady! Your pancakes look delish :)
I think my best birthday was the year before last, hubby took the day off and we went for a day trip to Mudgee in search of wine! We ate lovely food, sampled lovely wine (took some home too!) and just had a really nice family day together. It was a very thoughtful birthday, you know?

Lucky you! Happy Birthday :) I don't actually know which was my favourite birthday- but it wasn't my 40th last year- I was sick for it!! Enjoy your special time.

How wonderful - happy birthday to you Jess!!!
It was my birthday two weeks ago as well, but unfortunately we got the flu so that was no fun. Oh wells, there's always next year. :)

Happiest of birthdays!

Alas the only birthday I managed to get out of cooking and cleaning and ferrying people about was the year I stroked out the day before so was in hospital.

Never fear, it was waiting for me when I got home...

I am putting in an order for a day just like yours. Xx
