Miserable Day

What a miserable day. Not a single one of my family wished me a happy birthday or sent me a card.
You never fail to go out of your way to help them at every opportunity and this is all the thanks you get.
I've tried standing in front of a mirror and saying happy birthday, but looking at the miserable face in the mirror doesn't cheer me up one iota.

Re: Miserable Day

I stopped celebrating birthdays 20 years ago. I hit the half century in a few weeks, but never got over turning 30.  Sad
It's just another day to me now.

Re: Miserable Day

Some people of a certain age don't wish to rember their birthday and when asked about their age knock a few years off.
But................. Happy Birthday Smiley

Re: Miserable Day

You can remember it's your birthday, as long as you don't count the years. Live for today, that's all you got to do, simple.

Re: Miserable Day

Happy Birthday Smiley
I had mine a few days ago - my stepson bent over backwards to make sure he'd got me a nice pressie (he's 15) but my two "real" kids couldn't be bothered (16 and 20). Sad
The stepson is currently investigating the possibility of getting me a home brewing kit - I suspect he has an ulterior motive though .....

Re: Miserable Day

Happy Birthday billnotben!
Family can be a strange lot but you can rely more on your friends.
We appreciate your contributions to the community forums (pretty much as good as family anyway).
So, once again, Happy Birthday!!
