It kind of feels like a small accomplishment that I have made it this far and breathing on my own for a whole 25 years straight! My hope is that now I am the big 2-5 people might take me more seriously, I am a proper adult, I am married for goodness sake! I still get the “What does she know, she’s just a child” malarky, probably because I am considerably younger than alot of the Expat wives here in Oman. They don’t like the age difference but I don’t see it like that.
Anyways, my birthday started off like this:
So my day started off with tears, pretty standard on my birthday with the whole “its my party and I’ll cry if I want to” thing, it’s my day and I’ll throw whatever toys I want out of this metaphorical pram that I want. Hubby starts to get angry at me being a brat and that he isn’t going to win against this birthday monster that has developed over night so he gives in and is nice to me, winner!
This looked like me!
Hubby decides that I need to get out of my comfort zone and he is going to take me on a jet ski, ummm okay… I’ve never had the urge to go on a jet ski but I’m running the risk of him stomping out the door and leaving me all alone on my birthday so I put my happy face on and think of the exciting prospect of taking my new underwater camera, yeahhhhh! (Oh yeah he did get me a pretty decent present so he’s not the total arse I make him out to be, I just like moaning hee hee).
This is us all ready to go off on our jet skii’s, then I realise I’ve never done this before and I’m kinda scared..
So after our jet ski’s it was time to head home to my little dog zoo I have going on just now, we have a very busy house with Penny and 3 other pups staying. Thankfully as I type now they are all asleep at my feet. After the 6am walk, breakfast then playtime there is a peaceful couple of hours where they all find a quiet spot and have a snooze. They are so cute when they are asleep 🙂
