My First Giveaway

My birthday is less that a week away and I have been thinking about how I would want to celebrate turning 35 for a while now. Arrh-I know 35! Normally I organise some kind of dinner party with friends and family because I like cooking for people in that setting. Last year I did a girls only dinner party to celebrate my birthday. It was such a lot of fun and even though my friends didn't all know each other they got along really well.

Well this year I couldn't decided and the main reason being that my energy levels have been really low. I have found from the experience of going to other social engagements recently that interacting with a bigger group of people is tiring for me. If I was having more sleep... Anyway I finally worked out, that what I would like to do on my birthday is get a good book and hopefully spend a part of the day lying in bed reading. That's it! :) Well not quite since that would be disappointing to my kids. So in the morning we will have our family tradition of a special breakfast together which includes birthday cake and presents. Looking forward to it!

So anyway its a good reason to have my first giveaway on this blog. I have copy of this book What every MOM Needs by Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall and a sample from one of my favourite suppliers of locally made soap Corryne to send to one reader. All you have to do is leave a comment sharing about one of your favourite ways to spend your birthday by Monday 11th April. Love to hear from you.


  1. A book and a sleepin, sounds just like a perfect way to spend your birthday. I must admit, the older I get the more I like my birthdays too. I usually have afternoon tea with some close girlfriends, and then save our birthday dinner for immediate family. I must admit though, that for the big 30, 40 and 50 birthdays, my husband has organised surprise parties and has surprised me every thime, and I have love them, especially all the though that he and the kids have put into making my day very special. I hope that you have a wonderful birthday and get to spend it exactly how you like.

  2. I remember reading some posts about your birthday. They do sound really special!
