33



It's my birthday!!! 33 yrs old! WOW! Remember when you were a kid and thought that by 33 you were going to be a serious, well adjusted, busy adult?? Good thing I didn't turn into that! HA!

I must have gone a long way considering that today I'm seriously looking forward to celebrating my birthday. Years ago I wasn't so keen on it. I'm still partial on surprise birthday parties which save us, the birthday people, from spending the whole day cooking and baking for guests...but nonetheless...joy.

My husband and son gave me for my birthday a spinning wheel with a detachatble thingy on top for winding the spun wool, two carding brushes and 4 kilos of wool. YIPIIIIEEEEEEEE! Me happy. A few days ago, for mother's day, I got a pasta maker so I guess I will be busy in the coming days...months.

Without getting too sentimental, I must say that, looking back, I've had a great life and I am today happier than ever. I'm looking forward to this "new year". I just need an adventure now to shake the dust of the comfortable, safe and stable burgeois life I lead....hmmmmm........ideas?

Happy birthday me! :)

Have a wonderful day, Marian! For a mini adventure, why not visit a new town or somewhere you haven't been before?

thanks everyone!
Yeah Mitsy, and oven would be an adventure indeed!
Filz, dankeSchoon!
Mini adventure to a neighbouring city would be cool... although I need a big adventure...like a new country, or bagpacking for months or ...something like that. :lol:

Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag!!!!!
Dat burgelijke is wat je er zelf van maakt?! Wat is normaal en wat is abnormaal?
Jong <->oud?? De dingen die je doet lijken mij niet in het standaard/ brugelijke leven te passen. Dus enjoy!!!Veel plezier met je spinnewiel en de wol. Ik wilde dat ik ook zo'n supercadeaux kreeg met mijn 33ste. Veel nieuew ervaringen in je 33ste levensjaar!
