    Happy Birthday lady! You’ll find some way to make it awesome.

  3. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Happy birthday! It had better involve chocolate. Which you later post about. Yes.

  4. Shannon

    Happy Birthday!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear!!! Perhaps we can have a belated birthday celebration for you at the BBB household with some other Canberra bloggers??? thoughts???? dates?

    1. Fiona

      Yes, is my thought. 😀 Dates… well not this Saturday nigth, but aside from that I ahve no life and am inviting myself along 😉

      1. Anna johnston

        YES. YES. YES. Let’s celebrate Hannahs BDay at the BBB household ASAP!

        1. Lizzi

          COUNT ME IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

    If only I could get on a plane to Canberra right now, I could be wishing you happy birthday in person in, like, an hour’s time (if you were at the airport… and if my plane was leaving Brisbane airport right now… and if you really wanted to be at an airport on your birthday…). Alas, I think it’s a bit late for purchasing tickets, so internet birthday well-wishing will have to do for now! Happy birthday!

    (Also I’ll be in Melbourne for a conference in November – any way you could fanangle your way there? We would eat chocolate mousse martinis at Koko Black for breakfast! I would insist upon such unexemplary and gratuitous behaviour!)

    Happy biiiiiiirthday! I didn’t celebrate mine, either. I spent it at my cousin’s graduation party. And it isn’t listed on Facebook, so I didn’t even get a birthday Facebook poke. Hmmph! Unacceptable! Make sure you do something better with yours, even if it is a one-person party.

    1. Lauren

      Actually, I feel like that coconut is all you need for a one-person party.

    Happy Birthday Lovely Lady! I hope you made yourself something covered in chocolate to celebrate.

    My birthday falls on National Food Day and World Boss’ Day. This combination seems a perfect match for my personality.

  9. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Happy Birthday Hannah! I love all your irrelevant photos. Hope you’d have lotsa cakes and chocolates!

  10. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Happy birthday! You deserve a much better birthday than a Let’s Chat About Dying forum, so I sincerely hope the evening component makes up for the day component. I would also like to wish for your parent’s dog leaning “happy birthday” before the day is out, but I suspect it would be a futile wish. Alas. I’ll wish for chocolate and dessert for you instead 🙂

  11. Nourhan @ Miss Anthropist's Kitchen

    Hahah happy birthday! 🙂

  12. Ricki

    I love that last photo. 😀 Hope you had a happy, happy birthday! (despite all the sorry coincidental events) 😉

  13. Anna johnston

    Bahaha…. I shouldn’t laugh my dearest, but that’s kinda hilarious. Happy Birthday Bestie, hope you spoil yourself with a chocolate treats. Hugs headed your way. Xxx

  14. Jonathon Clarke

    Happy Birthday, Hannah!! As odd and unfitting as your current location may be, and as sad as it is that your parents are absent, you can at least warm yourself with the knowledge that you are adored throughout the foodie-blogging world for your unique and hilarious views on life, and for your recipes, reviews, tips and stories. Oh, and also for your photos, of course! I wish you a wonderful birthday, and an evening filled with fun, friends and laughter! xo

  15. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Happy Birthday! Oh no, that creepy coconut again…heh. Hope you receive mountains of delicious chocolate concoctions.

    Yay Geminis 🙂

  16. Priyanka

    Happy Birthday Hannah!

  17. Alisa Fleming

    Happy Birthday!!!!!

  18. Nic@diningwithastud

    Happy birthday! I cant believe your parents didnt train their dog to wish you a happy birthday? Tats awful parenting on their part 😉

  19. Vaala ◪

    Well, umm, happy birthday?? I hope that at least parts of it are happy. Like the part where you read the comments on your blog post perhaps? And because you are awesome we are having a dessert night round at our place in celebration of your birthday (well, I will be celebrating your birthday when I’m stuffing my face with molten chocolate rice cooker cake and soy hokey pokey ice cream…not sure about everyone else…I think they’re just coming to eat dessert) 🙂

    By the way, what is wrong with the hand of the guy on the right? It looks like he has a weird growth or an extra thumb or something.

    1. Vaala ◪

      Oh, and my parents have been away for my birthday at least twice and also dumped me in hospital just before another (where I spent 2 “glorious” birthdays…). Why do parents DO that?! Don’t they know how important birthdays are to us?

      Happy Birthday! You are not just awesome as I said above, but also gorgeous 😛

  20. ash

    Happy happy birthday!!

  21. sophia

    My dear girl, I’m so glad I got my internet in time to wish you a happy birthday!!!!! I remember my last birthday, I didn’t have any one next to me either, and I got pretty depressed. But for you, it better be the happiest one ever!!

    (ten thousands of hugs!!!)

  22. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANNAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAY EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE BE BLESSED FROM NOW AND FOREVER MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *It’s my comment and I exclaim if I want to* 😛 aw man, wish I could make you desserts or something! are your parents near Sendai?

  23. Susan

    Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day!

  24. Margaret

    Happy Birthday cutie pie. What an interesting forum; probably bad timing on your birthday though!
    As you go through life you realise that some birthdays are spectacular and others are downright crappy! It is only one day of the year after all and as long as we have a lot more good days than bad days, I think we’re doing alright.

    I wish you fun, health and happiness every day. 🙂 xxxxxx

  25. Phuti Makibelo

  27. Johanna GGG

    happy birthday – may apologies and birthday treats – hope there is lots of chocolate in store! And a great big birthday present coming home with your parents from japan – wish I could bake you a nice chocolate cake

  28. hungryandfrozen

    Happiest of happy birthdays! Those preparatory brochures sound hard-core. No brochure can prepare me for the sinister gaze of the coconut though…

  29. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Happy Birthday darling Hannah! 😀 May there be many more wonderful birthday and many more irrelevant pictures! 😀 xxx

  30. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEAUTIFUL! Wishing you the best, best, best b-day ever of all time in the world! I think I ought to make a cake in your honor, don’t you? Matt won’t mind, I’m sure.

    Next year, you should come spend your birthday HERE where it’s 75 degrees F and sunny and warm! 😉

  31. Errign

    Happppppppy Birthday lady! Hope you are enjoying 🙂

  33. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Happy birthday, Hannah!!! I hope you have a lovely day filled with even more chocolate than normal 🙂

  34. Jess: cheshirekitykat

    Happy Birthday Hannah! May you continue to be sweet and blog about nut butters, chocolate and random photos. Your readership <3's you. 🙂

  35. muppy

    Happy Birthday, I love your random photo!

  36. Jacey

    Happy Birthday Hannah 🙂
    Hope it’s an awesome one, despite the dog not knowing how to say Happy Birthday!

    […] joyous, honoured, grateful, and shimmering thank you to everyone who emailed, texted, messaged, and blog-commented such wonderful birthday wishes to me yesterday. It was you who turned what was a rather lacklustre […]

  38. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    My birthday often was on Day of Prayer and Repentance (yay! ;)), and this used to be a religious holiday, and I had off -time from school. That was great (I hated to go there), until the holiday was abolished. *sigh*

    Ah, I feel with you a lot!

  39. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Oh, and the sarcastic “yay” was on the repentance part.

  40. Emma

    I’m way late.

    So… Happy May 29th (or 30th, not sure how many hours are between us. I’ll see when this posts)!!

  41. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Happy Belated Birthday. I’m later than your parents. Eep! lol

  42. Mike

    Hey Hannah – this is WAY too late to be commenting on your birthday post when I should be posting on your half birthday post. But I wanted to share something with you. I think you have a special bond with your mum (and your dad too I know). I also had a special bond with my mum. I was only 11 when my dad died. Like you, mum’s birthday was on a special day – International Womens Day. When I made a speech at mum’s 90th birthday party in front of over 75 relatives and friends I finished by saying that mum’s birthday is shared with IWD and she gets my vote as International Woman of the Year. That got a good deal of applause. Then mum calls me over and whispers “what is international womans day dear”.. God bless her. Thanks again for a lovely solo today Hannah. See ya soon.
