Another year

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.....

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you're having a lovely time - enjoy your evening out with the hubby. I decided this year, that I like this age, and am going to stay here, too. Glad to know I'm not alone :0)

Well, they say that age is just a state of mind.

Happy Birthday.

That photo of the scrumping fairy is delightful.

Happy Birthday!
That photo is wonderful, you must frame it.
A popular cheesy Hallowe'en decoration around here is a life-sized witch flying a broom, which you splay around a tree so that it looks like she crashed into it. Your little fairy reminded me of it.
