Happy Birthday to me…..

on Saturday I had a birthday.

Yup, I’m a year older but not a year wiser !…I am at the age where birthdays are not a big thing anymore since I don’t like the part about getting older…but I do like the part about getting gifts ( who doesn’t???)

I am happy to say my Hubby out did himself again…

I woke up Saturday…had my coffee in bed and said to my Hubby…”you can give me my gift now” ! LOL He looked at me and said that my 2 gifts are outside….

…the only things that were outside were the 2 Garbage Bin Containers we bought the day before, that needed to be built!


I looked at him and said…that’s NOT my birthday gift!! He said that I had told him that I didn’t want anything for my birthday this year ( I was content)  so he figured he would respect my wishes and not get me anything….I could of killed him!!

Just for the record…when I a woman says she doesn't want anything …she is LIEING!!!   

She wants!!

The whole time I was sure he would of got me a Kobo ebook reader …I had hinted about it enough!…MEN !!

We when out for a nice breakfast…after breakfast I had said maybe we could stop at the Media Markt so I could show him the different eBook readers….I gave up hinting now…I was telling him!!!  He said maybe later in the day…he had to lay down, he wasn’t feeling good…besides my 2 gifts were at home. ..I was really ready to kill him…he didn’t think I was going to except Garbage Bin Boxes as my birthday gift…even if I did want them…..grrrrrr.

At this point I am pissed off in the car…we get home and I am fuming …I open the house door and there on the bank in the hall is my Kobo eBook reader….I could of killed him!

I turned around and he was grinning like a Cheshire cat !…Grrrrr !! He tricked me good !

I am happy to say I didn’t kill my Hubby but if he does that again he will not live to see another one of my birthdays !

I uploaded a few of my favorite books…now I am ready for a rainy day of reading!Kobo

Thank goodness I have some friends that don’t play such dirty tricks on me !

My sister sent me these lovely charms ….

    One of the first things my husband told our son after he had presented his girlfriend was "do never trust in her when she says that she don´t want a gift"
