The 26th of February, 2010 was my 22nd birthday & also the first birthday I had nothing planned out. It was turning out to be quite a normal day except that a lot a people called me to wish me.
My day started with my phone ringing away, me forgetting it’s probably someone calling to wish me, disconnecting the call and going right back under my blanket. When I did wake up, returned all the calls and my messages, it still did not feel like a special day at all.
I went to work, did not have any new clothes to wear so wore something that was lying ignored that mum thought was new, so that worked well. Went to work, was flooded with birthday emails which was a lot more attention than I’d normally get at work and That was when the day started to get special!
Dwayne came to meet me for like 10 mins at work which was good enough for me 🙂 The Royal Challengers Blog had a Happy Birthday to Natasha blog post up with all the fans on RCB wishing me on my birthday. I felt like a celebrity! Not just that, one of the fans from RCB – RadioSandeep had started a discussion called ‘Happy Birthday Natasha’. You’d think that was it right? More than enough celebrity treatment for a girl? Well, that was just the beginning! My friends at work/colleagues treated me to lunch, we cut cake (strawberry cheese cake!!) & well.. something else on RCB!!
So Nidhi walks in with- “Oh good, your still here! I need you to just check one more thing before you leave” (Just when i was about to leave, i was just hoping there wasn’t more work to do) She continues, “Check the Blog on RCB, something there for you.” I checked it to find – A Podcast – My First! A Podcast dedicated to me!! I had goosebumps listening to it. I felt celebrity-ish! Too Bad I can’t upload the podcast here. Check it on the link. 🙂
After the podcast, we drove in Nidhi’s ‘dream zen’ just to get some coffee, but when we reached it was time for me to leave! 😦
So I leave for home, when I get home, Tanya tells me get ready quick.. we going to dinner. So I go to my room, find clothes laid out for me to wear, come back out and there are all of my friends standing in the dark in my house screaming “SURPRISE!!!!” Tanya had planned out the WHOLE thing!!! I was so ‘surprised’ to see them I did not recognize them in that much time, I could only see people, couldn’t process who they were:) That by the way, was only when Oscar wished me.. But it was all fun anyway! And i finally met Gina! 🙂 🙂
So my birthday turned out even more and more special through the day. Turning 22 was fun! 🙂
Oh and.. I will Blog more!
