Before writing the horribly sarcastic tweet yesterday afternoon, which happens to form the base of my password related post of yesterday (relating to my current employment or lack thereof), I was planning on writing about the superb weekend I had:
Tuesday was my birthday, which in turn points to the fact that Kobus did every single little (and big) thing to make this the most memorable birthday I have ever had. And he succeeded!
On Sunday he arranged with my two best friends to take me out for breakfast. While I was gossiping away, Kobus and Best-friend’s husband made salads and set up for a surprise birthday braai. The afternoon was spent sipping wine, playing 30 seconds, munching away on delicious food. Generally we were enjoying and celebrating friendships, relationships and my birthday.
Kobus and I planned to view a couple of wedding venues on the Monday and Tuesday, but Kobus couldn’t take leave in the end. This would be a horrible-horrible reason to cancel my leave, so instead I non-rested and painted the streets red while shopping, browsing and brain-storming.
The morning of my birthday I was woken up by Kobus and Logan singing happy birthday. Logan was super excited to give me my presents (which he managed to keep a secret from me for the first time in his little life). Kobus had helped Logan by dotting the lines where Logan needed to write his wishes to me. I haven’t been a very sentimental person in the past couple of years but I am definitely going back to my routs!!
Because I was alone during the day, Kobus arranged for me to do my nails right after the hair appointment I had previously scheduled. I had lunch with a friend and a slight twist in events landed me having an interview on my birthday! Sadly my interviewee didn’t even notice and did not point it out! :p ‘
The evening was an adults only evening and a dinner reservation was made at Pachas Restaurant!
