So December is coming up in a few months and you know what that means? I’ll give you a hint: read the name of my blog. Yes! That’s right! My birthday is coming up! And it’s not just any birthday it’s my twenty-first! Now I don’t really know for sure why this age is extra special and twenty isn’t. Well in my opinion every birthday is a reason to celebrate but if you wanted to go to the newsagent and get a twentieth birthday card…GOOD LUCK! Although finding the perfect twenty-first birthday card can be just as difficult because they are the ones card companies make and people rather have a party for that age and invite lots of people who in turn are the ones who buy the cards making it difficult to find them! I’m going to propose an idea on my birthday (after I have had my parties) that people start celebrating the age of twenty more so that more twentieth birthday cards are made! I mean why not?! Twenty is a great age to celebrate…I mean it’s the second time you get to celebrate a birthday that includes a 0! Maybe we celebrate a 21st because we celebrated our 1st birthday and not our actual birth day. I guess it is a bit hard to know exactly what day you are going to come out of your mum…unless you had a planned C-section. Anyways I’m getting off track...the reason I wanted to write this post was because MY birthday is coming up and I wanted to write out some ideas of what I will put on my present wish list. I mean *cough cough* that’s not what it’s about I know but it’s a tradition of mine…to help people (mainly my family) know what I want for my birthday and Christmas (which reminds me while I’m writing this I’m listening to a Frank Sinatra Christmas CD). I just like to make a list so that people don’t feel disappointed when they see a disappointed look on my face, although I would try and hide it as much as possible we all know it’s a bit hard to hide. I don’t think I have ever mentioned what date my birthday actually is…well just so you know it’s the 23rd…yes so close to Christmas I know…I LOVE IT! (Check out last year’s post on my birthday). ‘So ideas for presents?’ I can imagine you are thinking right now (or at least those who are expected to get me a present are thinking…you know who you are :P ) Hmmm so a list….now this list isn’t the final and exclusive list…meaning I may add to this up until my birthday. Also note it’s made for Birthday and Christmas presents. So here is a list of things that I would think would be perfect:
- A CD of Adele’s music, must have ‘Someone like you’ and ‘In the deep’...or any CDs of the artists mentioned in my post called What makes Me me.
- JAG TV series seasons 5 and up
- ‘Love Actually’ DVD
- Gift Cards to the following stores: Rockmans, Koorong, Jay Jays, Katies, Millers, QBD, kikki K. or Myers
- Puzzles - prefer landscapes with lots of different things in them. So no large expanses of one colour or sky!
- Laminating machine and laminating pockets
