It’s my birthday!

closeJust a quick note to say that this post was published 5 years 2 months 13 days ago. It's pretty old!

Any advice or opinions it contains may be super outdated, so believe at your own risk

So today I’m 25, which makes me feel officially old (halfway to 50 anyone?!). This should be the point where I post a relevant picture of me blowing out candles, out with friends or opening stacks of presents. Unfortunately, I’m still suffering with flu (the work Christmas party last night nearly killed me) AND I’ve lost my good camera so I’m kind of holed up in a rather reclusive way at the moment. So I’ll just post this fairly unrelated picture of me from 2009 so we can all imagine I’m partying with the best of them.

The crazy facial expression is an attempt to copy my friend’s expression on my hat. And here’s a more relevant photo of my birthday cards:

What did I get? A Wii game (Xenoblade Chronicles), a hand knitted scarf (it’s about nine feet long but I love it), gloves, Tommy & Kate bag, breakfast cooked for me this morning by my lovely Joe, a Snickers bar, £10, about six scented candles, and some more money to come which will go towards the Macbook Pro I’m intending to buy soon. A very random assortment of gifts, but all will be put to good use

Just one more week before Christmas, and then I have some well deserved time off!

  1. hope you had a lovely birthday Jenni! I’m 25 on Tuesday and feeling the ‘pressure’ of getting older lol!

  2. Happy Birthday, Jenni! I hope that you recover soon!

    I am only 20, so I do not think that you are old yet. =D

  3. Happy belated birthday, Jenni! I hope you had a nice day, despite your flu. You surely did get a lot of birthday cards!

    Why are you buying a MacBook Pro? I thought you already had two computers? (A notebook and a netbook, if I remember correctly from your posts? Not sure…) Oh well, Apple products are always nice to have, lol. I just don’t have the money…

    Get well soon! xxx

  4. Well Happy Birthday!
    First of all you aren’t old at all! 50 isn’t old… it’s just not young either… Old is… 80s. xD Don’t know where I was going with that. Maybe you should think of it as a quarter of a century. Bam, young.
    Secondly, thanks for dropping by and thanks for the compliments on the site! I’ve recently updated and plan to do so much more frequently, so be on the lookout! :]

  5. Happy belated! Hope you’re feeling better now, though!!

  6. Happy birthday Jenni! I always thought 25 was a really nice age to be at.

    Wow, I can’t believe Christmas is so close. You just reminded me. xD anyway, I hope you enjoy your gifts and have a good break. Good luck saving up for that Macbook Pro.

  7. Oh gosh, hope you’re better soon. Flu is the worse!

    I got some time off for Christmas too. Totally can’t wait. I haven’t had any proper time off since June.

  8. Happy birthday!! Hopefully you feel better soon

  9. Happy belated birthday, Jenni! I think ~someone~ needs to update her sidebar.

    I love the Snickers bar gift. xD I love getting silly little gifts like that because they lend themselves to birthday stories a lot better. “Oh yeah, remember that time so-and-so got me a Snickers bar?”

    Good luck saving up for your Macbook Pro! I bought mine around the beginning of this year and still absolutely adore it.

  10. Thanks everyone!
