    That's an appalling thing for a man to say to his partner at any time, let alone on your birthday. Completely disrespectful and downright mean.

    If I was you I'd have grabbed my bag, turned off my phone and taken myself to the movies and out for something nice for lunch. Hopefully the kids'll do their bit and keep up WW3 in the meantime for DF.

    Default Do You Celebrate Your Birthday?

    Happy birthday lese82. I hope your day gets better.
    Birthdays in our house are about showing appreciation to the birthday person. So the birthday person doesn't cook or clean or any unnecessary jobs (except going to work). we always have a cake now as DD insists birthdays need cake . DD will make a card or picture and DH and I get each other a present.
    My birthday is on valentines day so we usually have some special time just for me and DH after DD has gone to bed. a movie, wine etc. we don't go out for dinner without DD because I want her to be a part of my birthday so valentines day is not a huge deal here.

    Default Do You Celebrate Your Birthday?

    Well day has been a lot better. DF asked me to take him to shops and bought me a hand held shower yay and wind chimes. With a voucher he got for Christmas. Then we went to lunch at local bowling club with vouchers we won last month so so far he has redeemed himself after a thousand apologies. Now just for af to poq (day 21 ). So I can have some fun later lol.
    Thank you all xxxx

    We always celebrate birthdays, but in a pretty simple way, nothing extravagant or anything. If we go out for dinner one year, then we might skip the following year & just have a BBQ at home. DH & I always give each other decent gifts though, I think we would both rather a material item than a party or expensive night out

    Yeah, I still don't get the celebration vibe though. I know that many people won't get to live above average lifespans. My own father died in his early thirties.

    I'm not convinced about the need to observe any annual celebrations that I can think of. An event happened ... so remember it. Either it's worth remembering every day (or frequently, at least), or it's not worth making a huge fuss over.

    I'm a big celebrator. I celebrate everything - so birthday time is a big deal for me.

    I normally have a dinner with friends and family, another dinner/ catch-up with different friends/ family, and a big party (usually costume). Birthday Week is awesome

    It's fun to celebrate stuff.
