FANCY PANTS [ANOTHER YEAR OLDER]


In your mind, what makes a perfect birthday? The right location, surrounded by family and special friends, and a delicious birthday cake? Well, I had all these things this weekend. Our big girl and her boyfriend flew in from Sydney, and drove for almost four hours to spend 24 hours with us, and as they left, my dear friend Lindy arrived to spend time with us too.

We did a few lovely walks, dodged the rain, ate good food (including a fancy dinner and chocolate raspberry cake) and lazed about in front of our warm fire.

Birthdays are just a blessing, because each year you have one means a year lived. The alternative is quite dim really. Also, I'm ignoring those numbers that are sounding a bit high for my liking, and going with my health age which is 27. Sounds awesome, right?

What stands out as a memorable birthday for you? Was it a big event, or was it who you surrounded yourself with that made it special?

Thanks so much for popping in!
