Hip Hip Hooray!

It's my birthday today.... and I've officially hit the mid thirties!

I was going to make myself a birthday cake, but I went to a new local cafe / patiserrie yesterday and they had lots of scrumptious cakes on offer, so I took the easier option and just bought one instead. It's chocolate mud cake with lots of chocolate on top..... my favourite.

I'm having morning tea / brunch with a girlfriend and then heading to my sister-in-law's beauty salon for a manicure and french polish, so it should be a lovely day.

Happy Birthday! Eat lots of cake (it looks so delicious!) and then have a little lie down. Mid-thirties are the best!

Happy birthday! The best bit about birthdays is that its a great excuse to eat cake at any time of day, including breakfast :-)

Happy Birthday. Definately a good idea to outsource the cake and relax. Enjoy your day. See you Sat.

Jo (sparkly green knickers) said...

Goodness, mid-thirties! So very old and crotchety :) (don't worry, I'll be there in another 6 months or so!)

Hope you have a fabulous day out - and don't eat all of that chocolate cake at once!

Cindy said...

Happy birthday Cam, I expect a post tomorrow with a very empty cake plate please. Enjoy your day.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day. That cake is making my mouthwater. I might have to duck out to the cafe and have a bit of birthday cake in your honour.

That mid-thirties club is very exclusive ... unfortunately, as I found out, they kick you out after a while! :)

Wishing you a wonderful day for your birthday. Hope you have a lovely time and enjoy all your treats. Argy and Bargy send you a big mmmwah, mmmwah (that's a somewhat sloppy 2 and 4 year old boy kiss for each cheek).

Cathy said...

Wishing you lots of lovely thoughts and wishes for this special day. Have a good one!

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday Cam!

Ulla said...

Happy Birthday, Cam! Enjoy your pampering moments at the beauty salon. Birthday is such a special day, we all deserve a cake baked by someone else for it.

Tinniegirl said...

Happy Birthday Cam. I left a little something for you over at Tinniegirl. However, I'm even more excited about what I have to give you on Saturday. Can't wait.

Sandra @ Pepperberry and Co. said...

My goodness! I've just realised that I'm not one of your followers. How rude! I have just signed up and you can expect me to stalk your blog from now on :-)

What a perfect time to visit your blog, though, and send you birthday wishes!! I hope the day has brought you endless laughter, pampering and chocolate and that the year ahead is full of great friends, crafty fun and magical moments.

That cake looks too good to be true! Enjoy a piece for me :-)

kitty said...

I've edited the post to include the recipe for you. x

Alison said...

Happy Birthday! Have a nice relaxing day. I don't need to remind you to indulge yourself with that cake around! Mid thirties, how I wish I was still in my mid thirties. Ha!

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

Best wishes for your birthday!! Cake looks divine and having a manicure sounds like a perfect way to celebrate.

Bird Bath said...

Sounds like you have the festivities all sorted - what a great way to celebrate. enjoy the cake, friends and thirties.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

sewjourn said...

Happy Birthday Cam......mid 30s sounds much better than 40 (looming for me) but there's nothing we can do about it! Hope you had a great day.

Nikki said...

Yay! Happy birthday, Cam! Sounds like a lovely day - I hope it was thoroughly enjoyable.

Enjoy the mid-thirties while they last (mine didn't seem to last quite LONG enough...).

m.e (Cathie) said...

Just popped by & read that it's your special day. Hope you had a great birthday. See you at the market on Saturday. x

running thread said...

A day just for you! That's what makes birthdays special. Hope you had a lovely day and an extra big slice of that cake.

m.e (Cathie) said...

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you come and get your Gingerbread Man gift on Saturday to have with your coffee! See you then.

You have 6 minutes of birthday left. If there is still chocolate cake in the fridge it is your god(or whoever)given duty to polish it off. Hope it's been an excellent one.

Happy birthday Cam for yesterday! Glad that you had such a lovely time, and wow, your market preparations are going beautifully! I can't make it this Saturday - have fun, and sell heaps (as I'm sure you will, your bags and aprons are so well made and individual).

Darn Bloglines - I checked in too late and missed the actual day.

So it's been 24 hours since you hit mid-thirties - I'm not too far behind you :) Hope it's great!!
