Suzanne's Birthday Facts

1) Last year my parents gave me a box filled with 35 books! A Night on the Orient Express by Veronica Henry was one of them.

2) My birthday is on September 4th. As I love the summer and Lavender is a cheerful and sunny person I thought I would give her a June birthday. The last day of the month, in the middle of the year. It suits her very well.

3) My star sign is Virgo, but I'm not serious and organized at all. I'm very chaotic actually.

4) I always put clothing on my birthday wishlist, because I love wearing something new on my special day. My mother gets me something nice every year!

5) I like to give myself a birthday present. A friend gave me the idea and I loved it. It's wonderful to spoil myself with something I don't need, but really like. 

6) One time I had a disastrous birthday. I was on holiday and my husband forgot to bring the decorations and my present. We made reservations for lunch and the restaurant hadn't put us in their book and was completely full, so they sent us away. My husband made up for it as soon as we came home by making sure I could celebrate again on another day with lots of champagne. My present was a beautiful jewellery set.

7) I've been ill on my birthday several times. Fortunately I've been able to postpone the celebrations and haven't missed anything because of it. Once I had a delicious meal, prepared in the kitchen of a restaurant and picked up by my husband, in bed.

8) My friends often buy me presents together. For example to give me a complete series of books.

9) My husband likes to congratulate me in public places. Even, or maybe especially, when it's not my birthday. I've received lots of good wishes from strangers and even though it embarrasses me very much I do think it's kind of funny.

10) I celebrated my 30th birthday with a large dinner party. It was such a lot of fun!


  1. Great post. I love the idea of getting yourself a birthday present, maybe I should treat myself to that Kindle Paperwhite I have been wanting since forever. Christmas is the time I always ask for a nice outfit, we all get them and always wear something new and nice on Christmas day as a family.

  2. I also am a fan of getting yourself a birthday present! It's nice to treat yourself one day of the year (or several).

    Also, yay clothes! I like getting clothes on my birthday too. However, I also enjoy picking my own clothes out so if that's the case I am so totally a giftcard fan, haha.

    Being ill on your birthday is THE WORST.

  3. I so need to buy this book!! I have ordered another Veronica Henry, although I can't remember which one at the mom.. Lovely post!!
