I am so blessed, exhausted too - been spoilt by friends and family. I see birthdays as a reason to bring people together.

I started the day out with a unique Perth Festival experience of Siren Song welcoming the dawn in the CBD at 6am!

Morning tea with a close friend

Squeezed in some work in between

Now a quick power nap and

Closing out the day with a friend at a Fringe Festival show.


Gotta love summer, birthday celebrations, festivals and grabbing some sleep before Chinese New year is upon us.

What do you do to celebrate your birthday?

Happy, happy birthday! Wishing you a year of success and happiness!

I have always loved my birthday. I celebrate in all kinds of ways. Sometimes by birthday falls on Mother's Day (like last year) and I get double spoiled by my family! That's super cool! LOL.

Have a great one!

Happy Birthday Fleur. My family all have houseboats on a nearby lake. We all get together and grill out go fishing and swimming. Nothing fancy, just a simple gathering. It's always good to get together with family.

Hi, Fleur! I wish you the best of holidays, although now for you as I write this comment it's the day afterwards. I hope that your birthday was a special one and it appeared as if it was judging by what you wrote.

What do I do to celebrate my birthday? Well, as I'm now 60 years old, it's not quite the same thing compared to when I was under 10 years old. On my birthday which occured last year on August 2nd, I posted an article on the dashboard stating that when I turned 30 years old, it was as I remember quite traumatic for me. I could not believe on that day back on August 2nd, 1987 that I hit the big 3 - 0.

That day I played basketball with a friend, (it was on a Sunday). I remarked to him that I was absolutely petrified that I had become so old and where had all of the years gone? I think that he ended up laughing at me, telling me not to worry about it.

I laugh at it now as well because since then I doubled my age! Ha-ha!

Happy birthday from the south of France Fleur!

On my birthday my wife always organizes a surprise, if possible with friends. It is always different as it depends on where we are at that time, but it is always very nice.

Unfortunately I do not know what is a Perth Festival.

I have been advised by some that I trust that we are well into an Ice Age.

Do you concur?

A Happy Birthday to you.
Previous year went skiing in Austria due to the Big 60. Last year was a quiet one at home. When your birthday is between Christmas and New Year its difficult to know when one celebration ends and the next one begins.
Wishing you a prosperous year.

Happy Birthday. It sounds like it's been a great one. My favorite birthday celebrations involve family and friends gathering at a casual restaurant (usually something Tex-Mex) where we can sit out on the patio enjoying margaritas and eating tacos. Enjoy your birthday week!

My birthday celebrations are not typically as festive (two "festivals" in one day!). The nap part is more like it!
