The BIRTHDAY post! I'm 30!! :D

To think I've been dreading this day for months...

30! THIRTY - may be no big deal to you but somehow, in my head, it was sounding so final and somewhat incurable. I now realise that it's not so bad after all - it's still me (duhhhh) and I'm still here and I'm still smiling. Actually, I'm laughing hard and that's only thanks to the great people I have in my life. Went to the office in the morning, hubby gave me a lift and was keeping me entertained each time he noticed I was zoning out. Arrived at work to the usual warm welcomes; if you think you have the best colleagues ever...wrong, they're at my office! :P Hubby came back to work with tulips and whilst I was still merrily showing them to everyone, fussing around and trying to give them the best spot on my desk my colleagues appeared from nowhere with a chocolate-chip muffin and candles for me to blow! :D I go in for a meeting scheduled at 10.30 and I find another beautiful bouquet waiting for me in the boardroom, birthday card, warm greetings and all. I come back to my office, more treats waiting from the kindest colleagues ever and a brief, nice chat about travel and whether it's best to travel alone or with friends. More heartfelt greetings from mum, dad and sis, which always make my day; I store them all, love re-reading them every now and then. Another funny, lengthy text message from my dear friend - left me teary eyed, in a good way of course. Another greeting:

"Happy birthday my special friend!! I know that hitting your 30s may be a shock to your system (been there already...4 yrs ago!) but all I can say is enjoy your 30s to d full: life is soo beautiful - do not miss on any chance to be happy, do not worry 2 much & enjoy life to d full...remember Many people love u and care for u cos u r special to them & I am 1 of them xxx"

Bonjour Paris!

Bonjour Paris!

Off to the city of light and love next week. Yes, I will be having Paris all to myself again for a couple of days, and I just can't wait! I still can't decide whether I'm mostly looking forward to Paris as the fashion capital of the world, the macaroons I'll get to treat myself to (by now, you're probably aware of my crazy obsession with macaroons) or the sight of the cradle of Paris; the majestic Notre-Dame. It's probably a mix of them three. All I

P.S. I feel 10 years lighter

P.S. I feel 10 years lighter
Category: thinks

I've had one rough weekend, most of it was anyway. Sunday was a mishmash of insecurities, some very anxious moments and a general feeling that I could somehow be disappointing the ones around me. This meant I was uneasy practically all day, but today an old friend brought me to my senses and supplied me with some very needed words of wisdom.

'Go for a walk, sit on a rock and just observe nature. That's the easiest link to

13 going on 30!

Category: thinks

Could be the fact that I will be turning 30 in 6 days time, or maybe it's that I'm finally winding down after one busy week. Either way, I'm sipping my tea and looking back on to what I've been up to this past year. I don't know about you but each year, days before my birthday, I find myself weighing what I would have learnt, achieved and missed out on to. And this year, this general feeling is turning out to be even more persistent - I'm guessing it's all due

I shall say this only once, probably because I've repeated it to myself so many times that I still would like it to still be special rather than get used to saying and feeling it. I WAS ON Malta Llejla - this afternoon!!! Ok, so it may not be that big of a deal to you, especially if you're not than keen on local tv or television in general for that matter. But for me, for ...
