Today was my birthday and as usual, I was very spoiled. I got my iPad thoroughly pimped, thanks to a sensible protective Apple and a cute etsy cover, bags of Lush to bathe in, a new phone cover, a handmade pad by Josie and handmade cards from them all and some knitting and crochet books from my mil and fil. Tonight Max and I had a lovely meal out too; it was great.
I love how much the girls like giving us gifts, it always makes me feel very proud of them. They made it a good day; Josie and Amelie even brought me tea and toast in bed and tidied the house ready for it being cleaned. The rubbish is all gone now and all that is left to do is hire a carpet doctor and try to de dirt downstairs as much as possible. It feels great.
Everything feels so different to a year ago. Hard to believe so much has changed. I enjoyed today without too much sad, angry or pain – and that was a good feeling. Long may it continue.
