Free birthday gifts

I got a lovely influx of free offers for my birthday. Offers that included the latter above from McDonald’s cafe to 10 cents off petrol (Caltex) and a lovely crystal pen from Farmers.

They were free in the sense that I did not have to buy anything to redeem them.  I did have to go to the shops and there was the temptation of additional purchases but I just enjoyed the birthday greetings and lovely simple but practical offerings.

I didn’t have to go out of my way for any of them because they are already some of my favourite places. It brings an emotional warmth that can be absent in so much of our interactions today.   Where we greet things online or in the mail never truly encountering another human face to face.

I did discover I had my age wrong.  I am 48 lol not 47.  Those who know me can understand how I made this mistake.  While it could be denial it is more likely that I suck at math in any form!!

There is one birthday email that will cost me 20.00 but a 30 minute neck and shoulders massage is pure temptation with my current shoulder pain.  We shall see.

Have a great day!



I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.

  1. Happy Birthday Sam! It’s okay, we all would like to think we are younger than we are (women anyways). Hope you enjoyed your 48th birthday and were spoiled by your friends and family. Hope the massage was good as well 🙂
