Follow-up to Non–birthday from For blog's sake

Last year, my birthday was a bit of a non–event. I started work here on the 15th August and my birthday was the following day so I didn't have much time for celebrations – I was too concerned with starting a new job and making a good impression.

This year, my birthday is a non–event for a different reason… There are so many other things going on that I haven't really organised a specific birthday celebration – the whole week will just be a variety of celebrations…mostly other peoples.

On Friday (11th) I am having a night out in Birmingham with my cousin Maria as it will be her last chance for a Brummie night out before she goes back to Indonesia on the 18th. On Saturday (12th) it is my Mom's birthday and I will be deserting her (sorry Mom!) and heading to Leeds with to my cousin Katrina's, house warming party/bbq/night out. We are staying in Leeds on Sunday night too and going out in Chapel Allerton where Katrina used to live. Me and Maria will get the train back to Birmingham on Monday – not looking forward to that hangover.

I have the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off work – I suspect I will need this time to recover(!) Not sure what I will be doing yet but guessing it will involve playing tennis and going shopping for some new house stuff in anticipation of all of my birthday money (wishful thinking!) My cousin Anna also gets back from her travels in America on Monday so will have to catch up with her and reminisce on our New York adventures. Wednesday is my birthday : ) – think I will just spend it relaxing and going for a nice meal with my parents.

On Sunday (20th), I am heading to London for the day. My friend Zoe is having a picnic in Regents Park for her daughter's first birthday. It will be a lovely day and our trips to London are always a a great opportunity to catch up with old Uni mates. Another mate from Uni, Olivia, is coming from Shrewsbury to stay at mine on the Saturday before going to London – We will, of course, be going out in Birmingham for another non–birthday booze–up.

So as you see – a very hectic birthday week with a lot of non–birthday celebrations! Am looking forward to it!

About me

My name is Ellie Lovell and I am the Web Editor in the Communications Office at the University of Warwick.

I started this blog in August 2005 when I started working at the University and have learnt a lot from it. I don’t update it so much anymore (I have been unfaithful to WarwickBlogs) but I hope you enjoy what is here…
