Happy Birthday to me!!

Well. It has its advantages and disadvantages to be born 5 days after Christmas (29:th of December). The midwife had told my mum that I was expected on Christmas eve (24:th of December), so honestly I have always thought that 29:th was better than 24:th.

Good things:
  • Most people do the birthday shopping on the sales = extra many gifts
  • I very rarely work at my own birthday. And most people have days off to celbrate it with me.
  • Sometimes people buy one extra large gift to me, instead of two small (one for Christmas and one for my birthday)
Bad things:
  • Always get things last; drivers licence, being able to go to scary moovies/bars/disco.
  • Most of the time getting birthday gifts in christmas paper (how many July-children gets that??)
  • Sometime people think that they don't have to give me anything, since Christmas is so close anyway.
  • Since I was never in school at my birthday I didn't get to have a candle/flag on my desk, and no one singed to me in school.
  • It is pretty hard to fit in Christmas, birthday and NewYear in one week. So by now I usually try to celbrate my birthday my own way.
My parents always made sure that I never got foreseen regarding celebrating my birthday, and REALLY made an effort in wrapping up my gifts in the right paper. And since I am a girl most of my friends and I had boyfriends that was a couple of years older, so by the time it was time to get a drivers license or get into bars it was really not a problem. The guys had drivers licenses and cars, and the girls was still two years younger, and being born in June or December didn't really make that much difference.

This year I think I got the most of my birthday. We were skiing in th Swedish mountains at Stöten. It was REALLY cold. -13 or -15celsius (5 F) when we were skiing. And in the valley the car thermometer showed -29 degrees (-20F)!! It was a lovely sunny day. And when we were cold we just got inside for a caffe latte and a carrot cake, or a hot cocoa.

And when when I checked my emails on the cellphone I saw a couple of them from Statsy that told me that I had been featured on the Etsy FrontPage. Thank you DeerLola! What a great birthday gift!

Grattis på födesledagen, lite i efterskott! :)

Jag fyller i Juni, men visst har det hänt att jag fått mina paket inslagna i julklappspapper. Fast kanske inte varje år.

Vill också passa på att önska dig ett riktigt Gott Nytt År!

Hello said...

Grattis i efterskott! Vilket härligt skidåkarväder ni verkar ha haft!

Makens syster och äldsta dottern är båda decemberbarn och även om det är före jul, så är det sannerligen inte alla som anstränger sig för att undvika julkalppspapper. Och det är verkligen ett big no no om man är decemberbarn. Eller för all del första-halvan-av-januari-barn - fast det händer inte så ofta för min del :)

Gott nytt år!

Hello said...

Vi är ju årsbarn! Fast när jag föddes var du väl knappt påtänkt :)

vad roligt att läsa om fördelar och nackdelar, alltid kul med festliga dagar, man träffar folk och alla är glada, så jag tycker definitv att det är bra med din födelsedagdatum. Jag är född mitt på sommaren och älskar också min. Grattis och önskar dig happy new year och många många år av lycka. Att sy kommer du att göra, och finare blir det alltid med dina underbara små kreationer. kram!
