Here we are, yayayayayyayay! I am so happy to be writing to you!
Tuesday! Tuesday was my birthday! I woke up at 6:20(my record) and after staying in bed for fifteen minutes I couldn’t handle it anymore so I got out of bed and woke everyone who wasn’t up up. As the family tradition goes my family go no the bed sang me happy birthday and took in turns giving me my presents. I got a bike, some sketching stuff, some jewellery, a bag, lots and lots of books, an awesome beach towel(watermelon!) just to name a few. My favourite present was the one my Dad gave me, he bought me the domain name! It is so awesome and sounds so cool! Now I can just say: “Planetgeorgia.net”!
Even though I love my presents, that wasn’t the highlight about my day….The highlight of my day was waking up and everyone coming running to wish me happy birthday and have a family hug, when we all sat at my Mum and Dads bed, when I walked into school(yes, I had a school birthday, I loved it and I’m very glad that it was what it was) and everyone greeting me to wish me happy birthday, when my friends and I sat on the oval, when the girls won the game of flags!, when I went for a bike ride, when I was smiling throughout the whole day, when surprised my class with a cake and they all sang me happy birthday, when they all enjoyed and complimented the cake. These moments were the highlights, seeing everyone at school, spending the day with my friends and family….that was my birthday gift.
On Wednesday we were all insanely excited about my birthday party that night! All day we went up to each other doing an excited squeal. we spent the whole day together and have a wonderful time. By the time it was sometime we all took our bags to the school girls bathrooms and got changed, organised our hair (thanks for the help Livvy!) and added some bling. We came out looking like rock stars and people were just there looking at us like “woah” Popularity tip: Have a birthday party, invite ur gal gang, get changed in the girls bathroom, come out like Beyonce and you get all the attention.
When we got to my house we went in my room put the-many-bags away. The first thing we did was go to the lounge room for presents (seems like they were even more excited than I was) and they took in turns to give me there presents, They all know me so well that they all got me the perfect gifts!(apparently going to school with someone for seven years-or is it eight-you kinda get to know them….really really well…..) Then we quickly decided to go outside to the trampoline to play the “Bean Boozled” challenge. It was really hard to decide where to sit and do it because we had to be cautious of vomit(….). Of course the first one I got was boogie-the “bean boozed” god really doesn’t like me very much. I got blended with ‘Tutti fruity”, “Juicy Pear” “rotten egg” and “canned dog food.” What a lovely party game! We had an awesome afternoon tea (tnx Mum) of liquorice all-sorts, pizza scrolls(my fave), fairy cupcakes(yes,it is a thing, Mum got the fairy chef to help her make them that’s why they are so amazing), a fruit platter (seems like my gang likes Pineapple) and Salt and Vinegar chips(also fave). After this we did piñata! And I was first and I guess it was a light piñata got it in one hit! All the lollies came flying out and we had to search all over the garden to find some hidden ones! Upcoming funny part warning: We lay them over the deck railing and because we are sensible and mature, we all count ‘one’ then grab a lollie to put in our lollie bags in unison,we get to about sixteen (a darn lot of lollies in that piñata!) when we just give up and grab the ones nearest to us. So it was about 70% fair…..
The next thing that we did was do a photoshoot! Thanks to Mum (the best Mum in the world Btw. I know you think that your Mum is but that’s a lie because it’s mine.) for taking the pics, they are awesome! We were already dolled up so all we had to do was pose and smile. We got really creative with what photos we took and where and how we pose. We took heaps with us all on the trampoline ( took ages to get one that was all of us in the air because we all have a tendency to jump at different times even though we all counted to three in unison.
When it was time for dinner we were all tired and full. We went back to my room to play a game then we came back to have cake I was so full that I had a tiny bite of my wonderful cake then put it in the fridge. We played some games as people were one by one leaving. It was really sad seeing them all leave but for some reason I was really really happy that we had had that time together. It’s like that quote by Dr. Seuss “don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it’s happened”.
The next day I woke up feeling really happy and positive, like I was ready for what ever the day could throw at me. I had cake for breakfast(possibly the reason for my optimism) and I really loved it, This was the cake that I didn’t eat last night so I went into my Mums room and gave her a hug and complimented her cake.
I had a lazy morning and stayed in bed reading. After a long while I made myself a tea and sat down at my blog. I checked my stats and was really happy and excited at what I saw. That day I also went for a bike ride with my new bike and wrote blog posts.
The next day was pretty much the same. If you were wondering why I was home of a Thursday and a Friday it is because God blessed me with a long weekend on the days after my birthday, in effect giving me an unbelievably awesome week. This day I did go out for lunch with my family, I had a Chicken In Filo for the first time and I really loved it! One thing that I also did which seemed like a great idea at the time was ask everyone for their lemons. We had some lemonade and even though it was already artificially flavoured lemon I just had to fill the cup with more lemons…..it tasted amazing! Until I stopped drinking….my mouth was really sour and I think I did something to my tongue because even today it still feels weird.
The next two days were the same practically..on both days I went outside to take some photos. This is the photo that I took and uploaded it as my current ‘Header Image” I really love this photo.
I have done a post on the 365 challenge and on the Saturday I started writing them in a notebook given to me on my birthday. I have done two days of it and already they make me feel happy and wanting to read back the positivity! I really love doing it ands funnily enough it keeps me positive throughout the whole day because through the day I try to notice the little things to write them down at the end of the day. It makes me notice things that I normally would just take for granted and gives me a better view on things. I definitely recommend doing the challenge if you wish for more optimism in your mind.
Thank you very much for reading! I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
