Jen - if I wanted a cake I'd have to bake it myself & put the candles on my shopping list for Tesco!!
If he has anything planned I'll eat my hat!!

Plus it'll be our 17th wedding anniversary the following week - though I'd prefer being spoiled on my birthday.

I said about a month ago - "let's have a bbq here for my birthday, it'll save going out for a meal & everyone can bring their kids." Response was - "What?? Have ALL your family over for the afternoon??"
This evening I cautiously asked him if my SIL had been in touch with him as she was going to organise a girls day out if he had nothing planned. He said that he really didn't realise that it was that close to my birthday. I told him to come off it as he knew that it was coming up & he shouldn't have left it to the last minute to plan something!!
No, I know him too well - he has zippo planned!!

Thanks for that Tina - I've been married for 17yrs and together for 22yrs and my OH has never ever surprised me!!
I remember standing outside the card shop when he went in to buy my card - he wrote it in the shop & handed it to me when he came out!!
No, he really hasn't planned anything!!

I do not wish to build your hopes up in case he has not done anything. But I was led a right blinder last year for my 50th!

I had to pack a bag not knowing where I was going. The whole of the office knew where I was going and what present I was getting and they were all laughing their socks off behind my back. lol

Just be prepared is all I can say. I hope he has got you a lovely surpise *fingers crossed*.

I will reach 'a magical milestone' next weekend & my OH hasn't even organised anything. He's not bluffing either!! He thinks it's just enough to get me a pressie - a weekend away - which I'm not getting until July when we are both off on holiday.
This time 2 years ago I was really ill & thought I'd never see this birthday. Am I wrong to expect him to show me how glad he is that I'm still here??
