There goes another one!


It's my Birthday - yay! Despite everything I enjoy my birthdays on the whole although it seems to me that Birthdays are like deadlines - they whoosh by leaving you blinking in the after current as they pass! Still, it is nice to get cards and sometimes gifts from people who care about you and growing older doesn't bother me at all (yet). Of course I get the usual smattering of cards with rude jokes about age but I honestly don't care. I think that there is a lot more to age than counting years gone by such as how you feel and your outlook on life! I have noticed the odd grey hair but I got my first at 21 so I am less bothered about those now, and my knees are a bit creakier than before but then I also lead an active life and both my sisters knees went in their teens so I'm not doing too badly.

So what am I up to today? Well, I have taken the day off work but am spending the day on my own so I have showered, opened my cards and put some washing on to do, had my breakfast and done the dishes. Next I am going to wash my car and later I am having my hair done though as I am being taken out tonight which I am really looking forward to. Sometimes you are lucky enough to spend at least some of your birthday with someone special. So, Birthdays: a time for taking stock of your life, another year gone by and seeing how you've grown as a person and what you have achieved? Hmmm, perhaps but also a time for going out and celebrating I reckon! :0)
