This morning I get a phone call from my mother singing Happy Birthday…. sweet of her to do that, except she got the date wrong! You would have thought my own mother would know when my birthday was! The conversation happened like this:
Mom: Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, you look like a monkey…
Me: Erm today isn’t my birthday
Mom: Yes it is
Me: *half asleep* My birthday is on Tuesday
Mom: Today is April 1st
Me: No today is Monday 31st
Mom: Oh I guess I’ll call you again tomorrow then!
Me: *laughs so hard* okay then!
Poor thing, I’ll never let her live that down
But yes, I am 26 in a matter of hours (& yes I’m an April Fool) and this is the first year that I’m not actually doing anything on my actual birthday. I am spending my actual birthday in court… yup I have to go to court tomorrow at 10:30am for Jury Duty *yawn* I’m pretty excited though hahaha, plus I’m ill… I have tonsillitius and blocked sinuses so that’s dragging me down a bit
On Friday a friend from University in Aberdeen is coming to visit me and we’re gonna spend the afternoon eating and shopping. Saturday, my other friend (since we were 12 in Kuwait) is coming down from Aberdeen and we’ll probably go to another random nightclub like we did a few weekends ago.
After my jury duty is over (I have no clue how long it will last for, maybe a day or maybe a week), I’m heading to Paris for a while to escape the UK. I haven’t been to Paris since last summer so it will be good to go back, even though my days will be filled with researching and writing my thesis but at least it will be in a different environment, and Paris is always best in the Spring time
