“The” birthday

How do you describe the feeling you get at the end of a perfect day? So many things contribute to the sense of it being special.  I’ve indulged in more retail therapy – with easy access to a favourite store, (Lakeland in case you are interested) a lazy afternoon with my feet up and a glossy magazine and finally a concert, which featured area orchestras of an amazing standard. Lovely to be able to go to something involving one of the grandchildren for once.

An article in the glossy put forward the theory that it is important to spoil oneself on a regular basis. Contributors suggested things like eating a favourite food, (without guilt,) having a morning in bed, going to a film, buying something special.  So that vindicates the idea of The Birthday Month. . . . . . .  Come to think of it I did think of a Birthday Year in honour of becoming 70.  The journalist suggested that women in particular, spend a disproportionate amount of their time looking after others. That may have some truth, though I believe it is more to do with character. Anyway, there are still ten days left in TBM so I’m going to continue the tradition for a while longer.

What’s your favourite treat?

    Glad you are experiencing delights during TBM. My favorite treats? Edible, among many, are dark chocolate, ice cream, my spouse’s homemade pizza, satsumas, juicy naval oranges. Non-edible: special times as well as everyday activities with husband, visits with grandkids and their parents, visiting with other relatives from near and far, walking and talking with friends and veggie gardening, special Bible verses.

    My all time favourite is walking in the warm sunshine – a distant memory this year so far.

    My favorites indulgence would be some rich dessert like a creme brulee. I do love looking after grandchildren, even if it is exhausting.
