Today I am one year older than I was yesterday. It doesn't matter how many years that makes me altogether as I decided a few birthdays ago that I would just stay at an age I liked and that seems to be working well for me.
My great treat was breakfast in bed. I loved sitting up in bed eating bacon sandwiches, strawberries and reading Brideshead Revisited, total decadence.
The rest of the day has been a little less glorious with rain and a rather smelly dog to be bathed but rain means the children and I can have a lazy afternoon watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (my choice as the birthday girl). This evening my husband is taking me to dinner, which is always a joy and I will feel very glamourous wearing my new birthday treat to myself - chicken fillets for my bra!! Oh yes, I know how to live it up.
Before I go I must show you this, sometimes fairies go scrumping for apples and sometimes they get stuck.....
