My birthday was in May, yay me!
I didn’t celebrate it per se, but I had waaaay more fun than if I did, I think.
Last year I had a few drinks with a few colleagues and friends (And it was the oddest group ever put together even though we had fun!)… the climax of that hang out was when I walked into a glass door. Yes people, I did. No I was not drunk, but I was answering a phone call and I really thought the door was open! When I hit the door i saw utter darkness for a few seconds… haha! I got a tiny bump which my friends bathed in ice and Immediately afterwards the management put a sign on the door to prevent a future occurrence (they had been told to do that before but didn’t) we kept up with the hang out and had fun… I even caught my colleague reenacting the scene later, but I don’t blame her – it must have been an epic sight, lol.
Back to this year.
I was positive that I didn’t want to celebrate. I thought long about going to visit an orphanage but my lazy bum didn’t work on it fast enough. Its a project I’ll have to put away for the nearest future. However it fell on an event packed weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed! Here’s a recap:
THURSDAY: KIZOMBA DANCE CLASS
Since the next day (Friday) was going to be May Day and as such a public holiday, I went for drinks and dance classes at The Garage. It holds from 7-9 but was so much fun that we stayed longer! It was beginners class so the instructors were careful to repeat steps where necessary. It was also easy to learn and was a great learning experience. I met fun people and got great compliments for being a good dancer considering I was a beginner! It’s something I’ll definitely want to keep doing.
Since my cousin came to town to visit I hadn’t any time for her, so we decided to spend May Day at the mall. We shopped a bit, window shopped a lot, ate and goofed around. It was a good, laid back day spent with family.
SATURDAY: MY BIRTHDAY!
It felt good getting lots and lots of goodwill from friends and family, but I didn’t focus on it for long cause I was going to spend the day celebrating others; a friend’s wedding and another’s birthday…
The wedding was lots of fun and lasted all day with great music and dancing.
The birthday party which took place at the beach and lasted almost all night was even more fun! My battery was dead at this point so I couldn’t take any pictures 😦
SUNDAY: BEACH HANGOUT
phew, are you still with me? Keep up! 😉
Cuz still hadn’t been to any beach since her arrival so yours truly volunteered to do her the honors.
I took her to the beach in our “backyard” which is about a 10 minute drive and a 5 minute boat ride away from our home.
As tired as I was from the previous days activities I was glad to go to the beach; I always get a burst of energy and inspiration from the air and waves. This beach is usually a quiet and clean one but that day was unusually full and the shores had dead plankton which was ewwy. That didn’t stop us from having fun though!
So that’s how I spent my birthday weekend. Happy birthday and a big shout out to all them May babies out there, how did you spend your day?
