Well Now I am 50.................




Yesterday was a busy day and it was also a special day for me as it was my 50th birthday……….yeah I am now middle aged although Tim told me I have been middle aged for the last 10 years but I do not think that way…………….lol

Anyway I had a great day got lots of nice messages both via text message and Facebook, I also got a lot of nice presents as you can see and I still don’t have a present from my daughter Kathy-Lee or Natasha, and to be honest I am not expecting anything from Natasha any time soon she has to get her car registered.  My sister Sandra left this on Facebook for me:

“Happy 50th birthday to my beautiful big sis Jo-Anne I love you so much you are the most thoughtful person I know hope you have a great day sis you deserve it I feel so lucky to have you as my big sis :) xxxxoooo”

I had hoped to go out for dinner last night but when hubby came home and I asked him what we were doing for tea he said he had no idea and drank a glass of wine and since it was my birthday I had a couple of glasses of Baileys and milk I was not able to drive………………….in the end we ordered pizza for Tim and cheesy garlic bread and hot chips for me as I don’t eat pizza any more. Yes I was upset that he didn’t take me out for dinner and when Kathy-Lee asked him about it he said he didn’t think of it and couldn’t see the point, he didn’t think he needed to do anything as he is taking me to New Zealand next week we leave on the 24th and return on the 2nd

Yes Tim surprised me with a holiday to New Zealand I am so excited about that and I only have a week to wait…………..lol See Tim can be so generous and loving at times but often on a day to day basis he is such a tight ass……………..but I do love him……………

On Sunday we are going over to my parents place for a baked lunch for my birthday, I wonder if I will get a cake and yes I know I could ask for a cake but I am not that type of person I would rather just get it without having to ask for it……………………

All in all I had a pretty good birthday I even got to see my grandson Blain for a little bit, Kathy-Lee brought him over to see me last night………..

  8. Hi Jo=Anne. I'm so pleased you had a lovely birthday. You certainly had some really good pressies. A trip to New Zealand! How exciting. That really IS something a bit special. My hubby is a bit like yours, in that he can come up with lovely things (especially on special birthdays), but on a day to day basis - forget it!! Ah well!
