Yes! It's my birthday. I'm 36 and very happy about it too. It is great to be here. I appreciate being here so much having lost two very special people when they were just 20 and 25. I don't want to be maudlin though, I just wanted to emphasise that I am so happy to be seeing my birthday come round each year.
Today I had a lie in, breakfast in bed, a huge swag of wonderful gifts, plenty of messages of well wishes and a pile of cards.
I have just flung a leg of lamb in the Aga and after another cuppa in bed I will get dressed in a new frock (if it fits) that was a gift from Mr C and then I'll bake some bits and bats for Sunday Birthday Tea. Ooooh lovely!
Yesterday I saw My Girls (minus one. Boo) and on Friday I saw Bee. So I will have plenty to record here over the next few posts.
Have a great day one and all, so nice to have you along for the ride, this life is a good one, it's lovely to be able to share it and write it all down here.
