It was 12:01, a minute passed midnight, the phone rang.. damned..! who on earth would be calling me in the middle of the night and disturbed my beauty sleep! Picked up the phone and there she 'yelled" ..."HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUMMY..! (to be honest, I actually forgot that it was my birthday..!). I heard she gathered her friends around and the girls started singing the birthday song over the phone. Am touched... and smiled to myself when they were done. Aahh... how sweet of the girls.. (hope these girls did not get into troble with the warden for sneaking out of their dormitory at this time..!)
Anyway, it was my birthday last Friday and it was a little sad because it didn't feel so 'magical' anymore. I had a fantastic day (as much as you can have at work!) and the celebrations continued into the weekend with some wonderful presents and people.
