I would go to Coles get some nice bits and pieces go home hand a nice sandwich or lunch and sit back and enjoy some quiet tv while I ate.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! well I think a movie would be absolutely divine but I guess it depends what your idea of fun is. A hot bath and a good book? A walk on the beach, lunch at a restaurant with a glass of wine?
Manicure and pedicure, massage? Options are endless.
If it was me and I lived near a beach I’d probably take a stroll along the beach, and then head for a massage or mani & pedi but that’s just me.
Have an awesome day!!!!

Movie, walk on the beach, walking in a mall (without kids asking for shit!), home facial or spa, long bath with music, good book etc..

 She’s on a budget

Go for a walk in a beautiful place, call your family and thank your mum for the day, make sure there is cake!

Hello everyone, thank you all for the birthday wishes xx. I decided to treat myself to a manicure and a stroll on the beach like suggested. There were so many great suggestions. Thank you all.

Happy, happy, happy birthday! Could your budget stretch to allow for a manicure? if not, why not get a take away coffee and go for a walk through a beautiful park or even the beach (depending on your location?) Whatever you do I hope you have a wonderful day x

 Take away coffee for me a school run ritual

Not trolley by, but masterbate. It's cheap, fu****g fun, and enjoyable. The rush to your skin will make you have that naughty glow.
Happy birthday, I hope you have a wonderful day!
