bitter sweet birthday....


today is my birthday... it was a lovely day... last night i celebrated with angel, glug and some friends... it was exceptionally jolly i have to say... we toasted each and every one of you shits that couldn't be there!... angel wore the most beautiful angel wings you can imagine... she looked beautiful... a cross between a naughty angel and a sweet ballerina type of effort!!!.... and glug... you rock boet!!!...oh i just have to say that they make a stunning couple...!!!!

today i was surrounded by my family, the ones nearest and dearest to me... my parents, my brother, my sister, their spouses and a bunch of offspring produced by us all.... two of those of course my two boys...my mom took them shopping to get me a present...she left it totally up to them...and they bought me the two most hideous horse statues that i will treasure forever and always... they were so proud and i was so grateful... they love me... what bigger gift can i ever ask for?

i received many calls from friends and family... but birthdays always has a bitter sweet melancholy attached to it, why i have never figured out... so i will be glad that this day has been spent and gone... don't get me wrong it really was a great day... maybe it's the thought that one more year has been dropped into the ocean of life...never to be seen again, i really don't know... but there it is, i'm now at the wrong side of thirty...fuck...

one thing that has been particularly bitter sweet for me today has been the fact that my very best friend in the whole wide world has again forgotten my birthday... ouch... she's like that...but still... it's no fun for me to remind her of my birthday every year... and then still forgets to pick up the fucking phone....and i decided not remind her today... we spoke two days ago on the phone... she promised to come to my birthday party... and she never pitched... why the fuck not? ...double ouch.... she didn't even bother to let me know that she couldn't come... i would have understood...it's just a party after all... instead of being angry i'm just sad... she knew i wanted her there... to be told tomorrow that she forgot would just be a slap in my face... so dear best friend of mine, why do you do this to me... i waited the whole day for you to phone... and you just...didn't...i disappoint so very easily you see...

Aww. *hugs*

My best friend has done this to me plenty of times in the past. I went out of my way on Christmas to come drop off presents for her and her kids, and she hadn't gotten me anything at all. Maybe it doesn't compare but the same happened on my birthday, even though I called her and gave her a gift I knew she'd want. I guess sometimes we need to think, maybe there's something big going on in their life that we don't know about. It's heartbreaking when someone we care about forgets something so important to us.

Well sweetie, I'm here for you, and I hope all your wishes come true this year. XOXO

I did say happening birthday earlier, didn't I? [:-)

Hmmmm. My kids have forgotten my birthday. I have never forgotten their birthdays. At my age, I can skip a few b'days and never notice.

Ruby said...

hey babe!
Glad you enjoyed the party at least:-) So sorry to hear about your friend forgetting...again! Its bad when our friends forget the things that are important to us.

I'm really bad with birtdays,but there are a handful of people i'll never forget...my family and my closest friends. They are the ones that matter after all:-)

Hope you have an amazing 2008 sweety pie!

Happy Birthday, even if it be belated. Don't think of the days your friends forget to wish you well. Think of all the days that they do. That is what makes them your friends after all, and so different from everyone else.

I've come to appreciate most those who make time for me in their lives when no occasion demands it. Happy birthday and happy day after that. At least you are on the good side of one hundred.

angel said...

happy belated birthday sweetass, sorry it's so late.... i didn't read any blogs over the xmas break.

I felt the sting of your words re Forgetful Best Friend, as I am guilty of that as well. I forgot my best friend's birthday for 10 years in a row starting in high school - seriously! I'm bad with birthdays anyway, but the fact that it falls between xmas and new year, well, it was too much for me - swak swak swak, I know. I'm happy to report I'm much better these days (phoned her this year without any prompting). Here's hoping your best friend goes the same way. x
