TT #7: birthday

Thirteen birthday facts

  • Tomorrow is my 38th birthday.
  • I was born on September 8, 1968 at 8.50 am in IJmuiden, The Netherlands.
  • It's my first birthday without my mum (and dad).
  • I am a Sunday's child, but only in the literal sense.
  • My sister, brother and I have our birthdays within one week. Joke on the 3rd, Gerard on the 7th and I on the 8th of September.
  • That's not my fault. Joke was too late, Gerard too early and I was in time. Third time lucky! ;-)
  • When we all lived with our parents it wasn't always fun to have the last birthday of the three. I got a lot of my presents on Gerard's birthday and even sometimes on Joke's. Not all relatives visited 3 times.
  • I am a Virgo. In Dutch the word for Virgo and virgin is the same (maagd), so I often joke that I'll be a "maagd" for the rest of my life.
  • In the Chinese zodiac I'm a Monkey.
  • For my birthday Ron gave me 2 kittens, Freyja and Bastet. Freyja already lives with us and Bastet will come on my birthday.
  • It's the first birthday I celebrate since living downstairs. The last 3 years Ron and I didn't celebrate our birthdays, because of the lack of space upstairs.
  • This is my birthday chart. If you want to help me interpret, you're welcome to do so!
  • I share my birthday with Helga van Leur (1970, TV weatherwoman), Richard I - Lionheart (1157, King of England), René Klijn (1962, singer), Peter Sellers (1925, actor/Pink Panther), Sjeng Schalken (1976, tennisprof), Patsy Cline (1932, singer), Antonín Dvořák (1841, composer), Pink (1979, singer) and the Blessed Virgin Mary. *source: Who2 and Google*

  47. Happy Birthday! I'll be 40 in Jan and my little brother's birthday is 3 days before mine...We ALWAYS had to share our birthdays. My mom would make one cake, we would have 1/2 on his day, the other half on mine...and because our birthdays are at the beginning of Jan we usually got all our presents at Christmas!

    Thanks for stopping by my TT while I was gone. Here's what we were up to...The Camping Reports
