Its my Birthday

No matter what your age you always look upon the last five years with regret and to the next five with apprehension.

Today is my Birthday(Friday)! I am 19 today plus a few years maybe one or possibly two?
Feel free to sing me happy songs and send me gifts, remember there is bloody postal strikes going on so send them using a reputable delivery company.
I have a 9am Meeting with the Student Council, they obviously weren't informed that it was my birthday so have selfishly not cancelled! I am representing the part time counselling diploma course, so no doubt will have to listen to all the kids asking for a common room with a telly and other crap. While I on the other hand will just smile and nod.
Then i plan to go up to my sisters house and chill out before heading out for some food at a local pub or restaurant, not decided were to go yet.
Saturday is Wine Festival Time! My lovely chum Karen has ventured from the safety of 'down south' to see me and other friends that live 'up north'. So as a way of seeing everyone at once, we are heading to a wine festival in Manchester, drinking will commence at noon and finish when we have had a enough. Now i am not a big wine fan so this will be an interesting experience for me and could end badly (me vomiting).

So if you don't hear from me for awhile it was the wine! Or i am with the bloke with the balloon:)

PS. I am also house sitting from today so will only be about during the day for Internet use.


  1. Have a glass of wine then take care of the bloke with the balloon. You have to get your priorities straight.

    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday dear Claire
    Happy Birthday to you

  2. Forget the wine - go for the balloon-toting bloke!!!

    Happy, happy birthday!!!

  5. Hurra for deg som fyller ditt år!
    Ja, deg vil vi gratulere!
    Alle i ring omkring deg vi står
    og se, nå vil vi marsjere,
    bukke, nikke, neie, snu oss omkring,
    danse for deg med hopp og sprett og spring.
    Ønske deg av hjertet alle gode ting!
    Og si meg så hva vil du mere - Gratulerer!

    Or chew some gum,
    Or sing, "I Did It My Way."

    To the Tune of the Merry Widow Waltz:

    Happy birthday, happy birthday
    just for you
    happy birthday, happy birthday
    May all your dreams come true
    When you blow out the candles
    May one light stay aglow
    That's the sunshine of your smile
    Where e'er you go.
