30 is the new 21!

Right… I once saw this Birthday Tag post by Inge at The Belgian Reviewer blog and I told myself I’ll do this when my birthday comes up and here the bloody day is… I used to have this satanic pride over my birthday.. You know, the whole – “You are your own GOD! Muahahahahaaaa”- thing… But this morning, I was depressed… I’m not in 20s anymore. I’m 30 and should be all… you know, an adult but I still have a lot of ‘shit getting together’ to do… anyway, I’m all cheery, proudly sponsored by a lovely tasting rosΓ©! On to the tag!

Can you name celebrities who celebrate their birthday on the same day?

Hahahahahahah! Once I put in the date and celebrity so many ‘celebrities’ popped up that I went- ‘Who TF is this, even?”. There were Instagram stars and Youtube stars and I’m like- ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that!” … so I scrolled and scrolled until I found a few… Grigori Rasputin…. ah, Baby Spice aka Emma Bunton of Spice Girls… yeah, that’s all… You know about Baby Spice… you can find out more about Rasputin HERE.

Is your birthday a (national) holiday?

Well, 21st of January isn’t a red calendar day, but I found out that it is a National Hugging Day observed in the US…? Who knew, hey!?! OK, USA wins because apparently 21st of January is also a Squirrel Appreciation DayΒ at the Western North Carolina Nature Center and who doesn’t love freaking squirrels, right? πŸ˜€ Also, it’s Grandmother’s Day in Poland!

Somewhat less fun, who died on your birthday?

For many years I have known that Vladimir Lenin died on 21st of January 1924. You can tell I’m Estonian, eh?! George Orwell (d. 1950)…

What’s your star sign ?


Aquarius are filled with paradoxes, they are interested in the opposite ends of the spectrum, they like to be alone yet are social butterflies, they like to experience both sides and see both opinions as they formulate new ideas with their forward thinking, active mind.

Aquarius have a ‘live and let live’ policy where everyone is free to be themselves, an Aquarius never judges others because as human beings, we are all equal and entitled to our own opinions. They are verbally skilled and very witty, they observe people and learn how to interact with others through observation. They can be masters of manipulation justifying anything they do or think. As a result, they can deal with any type of personality and adapt to any situation.


Could not agree more! πŸ˜€

What’s your Chinese sign?

Rabbit. A Fire-Rabbit apparently:Β Broad-minded, smart, and flexible, with unique views. SourceΒ 

I’ll take it, ye?! No website has ever complimented me more than… chinahighlights.com has just managed to compliment me! πŸ˜€

On which weekday were you born?


What song was on number 1 in the charts when you were born?

Reet Petite – Jackie Wilson. Not bad, hey!

How was the weather when you were born?Β 

Well… Winters in Estonia are normally harsh… more so in the past. My mother told me once I was ready to pop out, she actually walked to meet the ambulance halfway. She remembers it being super-cold, -20 something Celsius and the ploughed snowbanks by the sides of the roads were so high they were taller than her. She is petite anyway, but, it’s still a lot of snow.

Anything important ever happen on your birthday?

Blimey… I looked it up and in various years on January 21st a lot of important stuff has happened but majority of it is quite bad indeed… That kind of makes me feel sad..


So, there you have it… I’m going to start cooking now to feed my husband and then I’m gonna pig out on the couch reading a good book! Happy Birthday to me! πŸ™‚



    • Thank you very much! πŸ™‚
      Yeah, it’s robably not that bad… my nearly 40 y/o brother told me same today πŸ˜€ He said- “you just have to accept it, there’s nothing you can do to change it!” πŸ˜€ Words of wisdom, indeed πŸ˜€

  1. I absolutely loved reading through this! A big happy birthday to you gorgeous ❀ I would say that counts enough as important and monumental. And fyi – I love squirrels. We have one name Tonto who lives in our yard and even lets the nonhusband feed him by had. Sometimes he aggravates me though. I try putting bird feed and such and lock down and he always finds a way to lift it πŸ˜‰

  2. Happy birthday, darling girl! I know how it feels: instead of being happy, you want to crawl under the covers and turn 20 instead of 30. I’m 33, and I’ll be 34 in March. I hate my birthday every year. (Technically it’s my 29th birthday for the fourth time in my opinion)…
    Anyway, what I learned is that age ain’t nothing but a number. Ppl tell me all the time that they don’t believe I could be that old, and I tell them, “fat don’t crack!” Lmao. It helps to be chubby when you get older I guess.
    But you get used to being 30. And after awhile you say it without feeling old. Cause there is always someone older than you. Like me!!
    So don’t worry about being the big 3-0. You’re young at heart…and I guarantee no one will know if you fib about your age. (Heh heh) 😏

  4. Happy birthday!!! Oh, I’m late so Happy Belated Birthday!!! πŸ˜„ That’s pretty cool that Rasputin shared your birthday. I know he’s not an awesome dude but I find him so interesting. And your mom walked halfway to meet the ambulance in such weather?? Wowers!

    • Thank you πŸ™‚
      Yeah, Rasputin is like… to be honest, I know more what he looks like, because he looks (looked) creepy so I have an educational mission ahead of me to really understand who he was and what he did…
      Yeah, I think mom had to go and meet the ambulance because back then she lived somewhere in the middle of nowhere (forest) and the roads not that well ploughed with the heavy snow πŸ˜€ tough cookie! πŸ˜€


  5. I actually know more about Rasputin than Baby Spice, but that is probably because I am old as dirt. Heh heh. Thirty is a glorious age so don’t be sad. Don’t worry about being an adult. You still have plenty of time for that. People love to die on my birthday. My grandfather started the trend, he died the day I was born. Ha! I am jealous because I ish I was a fire rabbit. I would love that for a patronus. Happy birthday. I know you will have a wonderful year. πŸ™‚

  6. Belated happy birthday, Liz! Cuddling up on the couch with fresh food and a book is an excellent way to celebrate. I hope you got to treat yourself with a couple of presents, too.

    But oh man, your poor mother; that sounds MISERABLE. Just wow.
