What’s your ideal way to celebrate your birthday?
So yesterday afternoon my mom, and my two aunts and me went out to celebrate my aunts birthday.
We went to a local hotel and had a meal and a few drinks.
The food was delicious. Mom and one of my aunts got toasted specials, with chips and salad. My other aunt got thai green curry, and I was trying to be healthy so got the healthier option of an omelette and fries.
We had a very nice time, chatted a lot, and just enjoyed each others company.
I didnt drink, I had two diet cokes, and then after that I decided to just drink water with lemon in it.
We got home at around 11 Pm last night. My aunts husband dropped us home, so we didnt have to wait for a taxi.
It was a lovely evening though.
So its blogmas! And I am late to the party but better late than never, right?
I thought I’d do some blogmas posts of my own!
Today I want to talk about christmas foods! Mom has already started buying them! I will be at mom and dads for christmas, treats will be everywhere!
I sware this year I am not indulging in too many!
I want to protect my weight loss over christmas!
Mom has already bought mince pies, christmas fruit cake, a trifle to have after christmas dinner, tins of roses, which are cadburys chocolates, a tin of heros, and a tin of celebrations, which are both also chocolate just different brands of it. She’s bought biscuits, tea cakes, crackers, pringles, peanuts, etc!
I will have a bowl of trifle on christmas day, but nothing else!
I’m so determined! I hope I can stick with it! Its so tempting to just overindulge!
This morning, we welcomed a new baby into our family, my cousin Christine had a baby boy. She is calling him Josh. He weighed in at 6 lb 8 oz. Isn’t he beautiful?

There was a great question posed in the book Stronger Than BPD. The book read, “Think about something that occurred in your life that at the time felt immensely difficult and perhaps even insurmountable. Recall how your inner strength and resiliency allowed you to ride out the storms. Celebrate that the situation, no matter how difficult or upsetting had some Silver Lining that created meaning.”
I have had many difficulties in life. I am going to celebrate the fact I got through them. I came out the other side. That something worth celebrating.
