Cake! Or pavlova!

I had my birthday not long ago I got a watch. I'd really love some shorty pjs as I got long pjs for Christmas but I only like to wear short ones in summer.

A good book and a massage voucher - and some time out to enjoy both before returning serene and chilled, ready to blow out candles and be fed cake by my adoring family original.gif

If all goes to plan, this year I will be getting a baby for my birthday! I'm due the day after my birthday.

#17 treetree

Posted 11 January 2013 - 04:05 PM

Mine's soon too. I want a day off, but one where the house still gets cleaned and the children fed! I also want DH to encourage the kids to make me something, and someone to make me a cake. Most likely I will get none of the above. Usually my eldest makes me a card, sometimes she gets the younger kids to make one too, and everyone else forgets.

I also have a birthday coming up in 16 days time. I wouldn't mind some new Thermomix cookbooks and there are always things I want, this dress for example.



#19 YeahbutNah

Posted 11 January 2013 - 04:06 PM

I also want a hot air balloon ride.

I got a digital radio for mine.  I love it.

Books, books and more books.

A bang-up dinner including a babysitter for not just the dinner but the next morning too!

#20 Pssst...

Posted 11 January 2013 - 04:07 PM

It's my birthday on Wed. I've asked for gym membership which I'll sign up for once I have the all clear from my OB.

And lots of cake to enjoy my final pre-gym day/s!! biggrin.gif

Happy birthday OP and all those celebrating soon!

I'd go with some sleep, preferably more than 2 hours straight because I just can't remember what that's like.  Closely followed by a day out by myself ( with the baby but only for feeding purposes ) probably consisting of a movie, the art gallery and lunch in the city.  Or books, I will always be happy with books/ book voucher.
If I had no kids, I'd fly to Europe for a sightseeing (drinking) holiday.

Happy birthday! I want a night at a fancy hotel etc but we decided to do it for our anniversary rather than my birthday which is in July in case I am pregnant (thus meaning I wouldn't be able to drink lots of cocktails and champagne!)

I would love some beautiful earrings, a strand of pearls, or a terrific handbag.

#24 Fanny McPhail

Posted 11 January 2013 - 04:21 PM

I asked this question just before my birthday in July and had so many varied responses it actually really helped me determine what to ask for (my DH gives me a dirt look if I reply "nothing" or "surprise me").

I ended up asking for tickets to a live comedy show. I got my surprise because DH had to pick the comedian, he chose Bill Bailey, he did well.

So OP what do you want for your birthday and what do you absolutely NOT want to receive?

#25 Born Slippy

Posted 11 January 2013 - 04:22 PM

Dinner at a nice restaurant.

An extension on my gym membership.

Some cinema gift cards/free passes.

I'd be happy with one or all three of those.

Happy Birthday OP!
