Throwback Thursday – #40 – Birthday Blasts

It’s Lauren’s turn again to pick the theme for this week’s Throwback Thursday. The brainchild Lauren and Maggie.

Plus it was Lauren’s birthday yesterday so happy birthday Lauren. So guess what her choice is this week?

Birthday Blasts.

1) What’s your earliest birthday memory?

I really don’t remember early birthdays. One of the memories I do have is being at a party and feeling scared and uncomfortable. I remember not being able to eat the food and the hosts mother thinking it was a huge laugh.

2) What was your favorite birthday and why?

Definitely when I was thirteen and my parents bought tickets for me to see the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds at the Albert Hall. Mum and Dad asked a neighbour’s son who was about eighteen to take me. That was an amazing birthday present.
Also my eighteenth birthday was great fun it was a fancy dress party and I went as a Greek Goddess

3) What’s the best birthday present you have ever received?

The trip to see the Stones and the Yardbirds. Though my eldest son was born a week after my 20th birthday that was a beautiful belated gift.

4) Did you ever get money as a birthday gift?

Aunts used to give us one of two pounds if we were lucky.

5) What did you like to do on your birthday as a kid?

Usually we used to have friends round to tea. Jelly ice-cream cakes and balloons.
What do you like to do now?
See the grandchildren, have a day out with the family 💜

6) Did you have birthday parties with friends or family parties.

When I was younger it was both family and friends. Then as I got older just friends.

7) Did you get to pick the food for your birthday?

Not until I was a lot older.
Did you prefer to eat a home cooked meal or to eat out at a restaurant on your birthday?
Both ways suited me fine.

8) Did your family have any fun birthday traditions?

No

Did you continue those traditions with your own kids?

No

9) Did you ever get to take the day off school on your birthday?

No

As an adult did/do you take the day off?

No

10) Have you ever had a surprise birthday party?

No

Was it a real surprise, or did you know it was coming?
No because I never had one😂😂😂😂. I have arranged a few in my time!

Bonus Question:
If you had a million dollars to spend only on your next birthday, what would you do?

I would take all my friends on an all inclusive fortnight holiday in Antigua if any money was left I’d give it to charity..

thats it for now folks.

    Thanks for joining on Willow. I guess someone needs to get together and host a surprise birthday party for you. Maybe you could drop some hints.

    Gosh, remember that I’m your friend if you come into millions. I’d like to go! Your birthdays sound like mind. I got to celebrate my brother’s birthday because his was two weeks earlier. I didn’t mind at all. I love your answer about continuing the traditions. Did you have any? No Did you continue them? Right answer – Yes! You DID continue the tradition of no traditions LOL I think birthday celebrations are highly over-rated. Kids get worked up hyped up on sweets or overexcited, grumpy, mad.
