it's my birthday!

20 August 2012

having a birthday = fun.
having a birthday on a monday at work = not so fun.

but tonight i get to hang out with some seriously awesome people and have a glass (or two) of prosecco all in the name of turning 23.
now you can't tell me that isn't fun!

in preparation for having roughly thirteen too many people over to our one bedroom flat tonight, we spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening cleaning and making the flat look spotless.

i'm a girl who is pretty damn house proud and who loves a good clean.
yesterday i was determined to make the place look all pretty.

the only problem is that when i start to do something, i have to do it properly.
like OCD properly.
top to bottom, re-organise everything and shuffle it all about properly.
(ben loves to make a joke about my compulsive need to shuffle everything around every so often)
this is what happened when i decided to 'properly' clean one of our storage cupboards...

picture says it all really. (at least you can't properly see just how much of a sweaty mess i am)
ben refused to help me sort it out.
"quote: it's your mess, you sort it out."
HMPH. i was not impressed. so i followed him around like goblin does when he wants dreamies and then sat with in the middle of the 'mess' until he helped.

he ended up huffing and puffing his way through helping and the cupboard looks AMAZEBALLS as a result of our my hard work.
i might even take a picture to prove how good i am at doing pointless things like this... end of story.

oh and congrats to my sis who went from 'single' to 'in a relationship' today.
oh and apologies for this being the worlds most pointless post; i don't know what i am even talking about today. must be the giddiness of all the birthday excitement.
so bye now... oh and have a good day!
oh and congrats sis-wa.
so adorable.


  1. Happy Birthday! Hope it's a good one!

  2. Happy Birthday girl X0X0

  3. Happy birthday! I also feel the need to shuffle things about on a regular basis...keeps things fresh, like mix and matching your wardrobe to create new outfits!

    1. Thanks Celeste :) I think the problem is that i shuffle everything and forget to tell the bf...and then he spends half his life trying to locate it again! hehehe!!

  4. Happy Birthday! It's mine today, too! :) Really enjoy reading your blog, so glad we "met" through Emily. Cheers!

  5. I love organizing things. I wish I had the time to do it more often. And I totally understand what you mean about starting something and then having to finish it properly. I always start projects thinking they will take just a little while, but then they end up taking much longer because they must be perfect.

    On a different note, Happy Birthday! Hope it's a good year for you!

    1. Thank you :) i had a really lovely birthday :) i think it is just this perfection thing that we have going on.. isn't it annoying when people do things halfheartedly...and then it usually looks pants!! I also think it is a womans thing aswel!!
