Later, when I was shopping, I got to the register and discovered they had a deal where you spend $50 or more and get $10 off. So I saved $25.50 although that was not my intention when I went out.
Whether it's fate, karma or just luck, who knows - but when good things happen, I just enjoy them.
Thanks to the "miracle" of the internet and Facebook, I had a ton of birthday wishes messages from various friends and family from within Australia and overseas as well. It's nice to know that people do care enough to send a simple message.
So how do you spend your birthday? Alone? With friends? With family? Or do you work on your birthday? I would love to hear your responses.
