XXX...

Before I build your hopes up, this is not a saucy erotic post - triple X is Roman numerals for thirty and that's how many years I have been upon this planet, for the other day was my 30th birthday!

I now feel qualified to use such statements as:
"You kids don't know you're born" and
"When I was your age..." etc
Taking food supplements is now acceptable and I also feel it's compulsory to go "ahhh" everytime I sit down :)



Yup, you certainly do smell birthday cake and that's probably what you can smell below

My sister got me this fabulous massiiive cake and it was themed around music and beer! Spot on big sis :]


I was mainly celebrating my birthday while at Sheep Music (post coming next), which is an ideal location and I had a whole lot of fun and a host of gifts and cards bought for me, ranging from booze to cakes, books to money, clothes vouchers to gadgets.

I had loads of cards too, including my first ever e-card from Dakota!
Here's a run through of some funnies:

Everyone at work receives a handmade custom signed-from-everyone card for their birthday and this was mine.
Hoorah for the design Helen!



My sister even got me this walking howling pet husky that now resides on my CD towers, keeping an eye out for any intruders... GROWL :)


Today, I'm Most Angry About: Realising I've permentantly lost all feeling on the left side of the toe that's next to my big toe on my left foot - Grrr!!!
Grrr-O-Meter Rating: 5/10

Today's Top Tip:
Dieters: Avoid that devilish temptation to nibble on a chocolate bar in the cupboard or fridge by not buying the f'ing thing in the first place!

Kayla:

I like the idea of being 30 and have actually been telling people I'm 30 when they ask over the past year anyhow :]
Hehe, no bum shot, although I could have had a 3 written on one cheek and 0 on the other :0)

A very happy birthday to you!! Thanks so much for your kind words on the blog - it means a lot.

Now, have you eaten all the cake yet?

Dakota said...

That is one brilliant and delicious looking cake and the cards are pretty funny too!
Cute low maintenance watchdog, the perfect gift :-)

And turning 30 isn’t a biggie, although there comes a time (somewhere down the line) when you suddenly realize you are that old already ;-(

DoGGa said...

Graham and Prince:
Thank you sir!
Hope you've perked up a bit?
Yes, all the cake went within a couple of days - The majority went between co-workers :]

Dakota:
Cool cards and cake all round and a low maintenance hound yea :]

Being 30 does make me 'think' yes!

Jenny! said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoyed your cake (it looks delicious)...and since your 30 now...you need to be spending more time in your birthday suit!

Photogirl said...

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Phiiiiiillllllll.....Happy Birthday to YOU!!! (in my very best signing voice)

Great cards, and that husky doll is SO cute!

Today's top tip rocks by the way. If only I had that kind of self control...sigh...

Dakota said...

BTW, forgot to ask earlier. How can you lose the sense of feeling in the left side of your toe?

(belated) Happy birthday!! You are now entitled to make random statements which begin "I remember.." or "when I..." :D e.g. when I was a kid you could get a packet of crisps for 8p... :(

Kayla said...

Gotta love the potty humor of "sit"

DoGGa said...

Kayla:
Potty or toilet humour is just the best - never fails to make me laugh... It must have been how I was brought up ;]
