It has been a good birthday though. Busy but nice.
This birthday I enjoyed...
♥ Beautiful butterflies on my yummy birthday cake thanks to my budding baker husband.
♥ Trying a new cocktail, a Pink Cadillac, when Mum and Dad came over for Sunday lunch.
♥ Flowers from friends and family. I've not bought any flowers for eons (not even daffodils or an orchid, my usual good value buys) so it's great to have some in the house again.
♥ Surprise gifts. As well as flowers there's been a new cookery book, a fragrance diffuser, a favourite magazine (don't buy these anymore either), a notebook, shoes, a DVD and popcorn. It's feels good having gifts that are things I wouldn't buy for myself. These are then real treats.
♥ Working in the morning but having lunch out afterwards.
♥ A phone call from my eldest son who's away at uni.
♥ Taking stock. This year I feel empowered by an extra year's life experience and feel more excited about the future than I have for several years. I'm enjoying life on a daily basis and enjoying trying new things.
♥ Oh and on order I have a new phone - white, sleek and with an amazing camera. I've needed a new phone for a while and wanted to join Instagram for sometime too. So, I'm not sure if this phone is a need or a want but I've finally given in. Instagram here I come!
I know without my February birthday I might be a little less happy these grey winter days. Hope you can find some February cheer somehow this week.
Be happy xo
