Surprise birthday shopping.

I thought my birthday yesterday was going to be the same old day. John is going to get me a new four in one printer for my birthday. But with funds being tight right now I didn't expect to get anything from him. No big deal for me at all. I think more about getting cards than gifts.

We went into Haverhill to pay some bills and stop by sil's to have coffee. He said lets go in here to see if they have any sandal's that you like. I'm so darn picky when it comes to shoes of any kind. Found a pair that I liked and walked out. I knew money situation so it really didn't bother me. He called/dragged me back into the shop and showed me some really great tee shirts. Next thing I know we're up at the counter paying for four tee shirts and one pair of sandal's. Then I stopped outside another shop to look at the handbags, LOL I always stop there and look at them. But again I'm a fussy about them too. Found two I liked and John bought them for me! Giggle, I've never had two new handbags in my whole life. I mean, I keep mine until they just about are falling apart then I can't bring myself to throw them away, I keep them "just in case".

Then he got us Chinese for dinner. Yummy stuff our local take away. Still have left overs for tonight.

So all in all I had a really good birthday, lucky me!!!!

OH MY FREAKING GOD, it was your birthday. That does it. I am dropping all work and setting up my damn rss calendar with everyone's birthdays for the rest of eternity. I am sick of missing important people's birthdays.

I'm sorry.

I'm glad you got Chinese. And handbags and shoes. Damn.

I'm giving Denise full responsibility for me not knowing it was your birthday. It's all her fault!

Oh, Happy Birthday to you!
A bit belated but I am sure it is pleasant to get congratulations all over the year, like it happens with me :)
my friends might be in trips or somewhere in impassable and unreachable places to wish the nice things in time but when they find the way to say "Happy Birthday" it proves to be 2-3 months after the day.
So enjoyable days and all the best to you!

Thanks for dropping by my site and commenting. It's means so much when people take the time to write a word or two! Oh, and happy birthday. You wouldn't fancy a puppy from Alabama for a belated present, say 5 or 6 weeks from now, would you?

cI don't have as many handbags as shoes--but I still have a lot of handbags. I'm not picky--I love them all.

Thanks for stopping by.
