It's a month of birthdays!

You know how in theory your friends' & family's birthdays should be spread throughout the year? Well, mine aren't. They either happen in October/November, or March/April. It's really weird. There are practically no birthdays to celebrate in the summer, or at the beginning of the year. October is particularly busy, first around 12th-17th (for the Libras) then around 23rd-29th (for the Scorpios).

This year I've been really bad about sending birthday cards, as our post office has been on strike on and off since the beginning of the month. I've been sending emails and Facebook messages instead, which is not the same, so I thought I'd do a post specially for my friends who celebrated/are celebrating/are about to celebrate a birthday this month.



Hope you have/had a fab birthday and wishing you all the very best for the next 12 months and beyond!

Now, how strange is it that I wrote this post two years ago and it's still as current today as it was then? Even down to the postal strike? Only difference is that Royal Mail have been on strike for well over a month this time round.

I really should have done a similar post for those with September birthdays too.

October is a big month for birthdays in my family, too! We have celebrations on the 9th, 17th, 21st (2), 23rd, and 30th.

Happy Birthday to them all!!

Tinsie said...

Thanks for the wishes, everyone! Much appreciated :-)

@ ShadowFalcon: August?! I guess I shouldn't be complaining about the ten days my post is being delayed by!

@ Karen: Getting close ;-)
