And another birthday – gone, just like that!

I had the most wonderful day yesterday, for my birthday.
Daughter = happy, healthy, loving, beautiful, back in Cape Town where I can keep an eye on her.
Partner = considerate, kind, funny, loving and generous.
Mother = generous, kind, thoughtful, and got the day right for once.
Friends = some old, some new, all really lovely and definitely worth keeping.
Weather = perfect Spring day in Cape Town. A miracle!
Presents = a lot. Not that things in themselves are important to me, ahem, but damn I got some good ones…
Food = pizza and Swiss chocolate (not combined) = heaven.
Crafting time = got me some of that, too. Mosaiced seven crosses and finished 2 pairs of slippers.
Reading time = check. Reading a great murder horror mystery thing set in drugged-up California in the 70s.

Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10 = life is almost too good to be true. I am very aware of the corniness inherent in that statement, and I try to maintain an image of myself of Most Uncorny Person Ever (haha), but maybe I am not so cynical after all (deep down). Anyway, whatever I am, whatever the past threw at me, whatever the future holds, right now at this time, I am happy and grateful for all the good things in my life.
Now, who moved my prozac?…

    Happy Birthday Jill xxx. We were celebrating also yesterday… It’s Little J’s 5th birthday on Tuesday and we had his party yesterday afternoon with some of his little friends from school. First one we have done at home. It was lots of fun and they were all brilliantly behaved. So pleased you had a wonderful day.
