I am like a little child on my birthday. I love 29th April and it is a particulary great day because not only is it warm and bright. I feel great. There have been birthday’s in the past where I have had to cancel celebrations because of being yeuck….. But NOT TODAYYYY yayy
So Yesterday just to be on the safe side I ventured into my husbands office in Liverpool and said in a fairly loud way “If Simon disappears today, please make sure he is going to John Lewis to buy some Coco Chanel” they just laughed…. But Simon Said…. ” I havn’t got time today ” so I responded “Well maybe I will have time to smash up all your golf clubs”… then smiled a delecate angelic smile and left the building !!!!
So much to my surprise there is a Chanel bag and card on the table this morning…. Which has raised my happy factor no end.
I am so not afraid to use threats to get gifts out of Simon (btw he know’s I won’t smash up his golf clubs – but would sell them on ebay to buy myself a gift)
I made a few mistakes early in my life…. I said things like “oh I don’t need gifts ” Well HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOO
I don’t need gifts, but I like getting gifts ! I think getting gifts is a wonderful thing.
But I have been a bit slack, getting other people cards and gifts for their birthday’s…. I am making a new resolution to make more effort.
I will blame the Brain Fog, I think that Menopause has robbed me of a bit of memory for birthday’s … BUT i thanks to Donna Thompson (who also has her birthday today !!!!) I have a new journal booky thing – It’s called “I got this”
So here is the declaration of intention
I GILL FELL, WILL GET BIRTHDAY CARDS, WEDDING CARDS (AND GIFTS !!! SORRY ZARA) TO PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT DAY…. I know this year looking back I have already failed on SNUDS, MAGGIE, CHRIS, VILMA, and probably a few others !!! oh Crikey please forgive me…..
So I promise to do better.
There, that’s that done…
I also really believe in gifting yourself.
So here is a mini list of my self gifts
BAKE A CAKE AND EAT SOME
WRITE MORE POEMS
CHAT AND HAVE COFFEE MORE
DO A MINI YOGA ROUTINE DAILY
EAT LOVELY VEGGIES
LOVE MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS MORE
BUY MYSELF A GIFT DAILY OH OK WEEKLY
If it’s not your birthday then please gift yourself anyway and feel free to use my list
So enjoy your 29th April and know that it’s a perfect day to love yourself (Donna !!!) and be (just BE)
Happy 29th April everyone – with big love and hugs from your “Nailing it” mate Gill
positive not perfect
But Nailing something everyday (not Simon to the dart board I hope)
Right off to make some noise and get the Mispent Youth Day started
Let the games commence …..
