It’s My Birthday!!!

السلام عليكم و رحمةالله و بركاته

Oops… I’m posting rather late… 

But since I’m the birthday girl, I shall hope you all will be so kind as to excuse my tardiness. 

So, this past few weeks have been quite rather stressful to say the least. Major life decisions needed to be taken and to be honest, I’m quite glad to be where I am currently. 


Comfortably seated on my bed after having been indulged by my family at Ocean Basket, a local seafood restaurant, for my birthday dinner. 


So far I’ve been blessed with bouquets of flowers.. Well.. One of which is an actual plant and I’m so hoping my ‘green fingers’ kick in cos … I’ve never really looked after a plant before in my life! {Noo! Them school projects with the beans and things got tossed into the vegetable garden and I didn’t worry about it afterwards.. So that doesn’t count.. Right?}

So.. If any of you happen to be avid gardeners, especially flower growers.. Please advise me on the best way to care for my lovely orchids? 

All advice shall be appreciated. 

I did have a love for growing things when I was little but I think it was due to my Grandad, who was an avid gardener. Sadly he passed away earlier this year but I will always remember his love for planting and his gardens.

Birthdays aren’t really celebrated in my family as such. Supper, or a cake made by me, is usually what we have and what better way is there to celebrate than with those that love and care for u?   

Have you ever been given a plant as a birthday gift or what was the most unusual gift you have ever received and what did you do with it, or how did you care for it? 

I’d love to know, and I’m sure everyone has an interesting experience to share. 

I look forward to hearing from you all.
