It's My Party And...

It was lovely, it was lovely, it was lovely.

It may well have been the best birthday ever.

And it was sunny all day and I didn't completely lose my voice overnight and I received many many lovely thoughtful gifts and felt very much loved.

And my baby said "'appy burrday mumma."

And my nephews made me cards.

And the digital camera that was doing the rounds at the restaurant taking ridiculous pictures of everyone turned out, the following morning, to be my digital camera, being my present from Tricky and C.

And Naughty Nephew the 2nd, spent at least two hours (which is a very long time when you are a busy 8) yesterday working out how to play Happy Birthday on his trumpet.

And when the cake was brought out after a lovely family dinner, he played it beautifully.

And of course it made me cry.

Happy, happy birthday, OG! It does sound like an absolutely perfect day, and I hope that you have many more such perfect days in the upcoming years. I imagine that as our little guys get older there will be lots of them!

Jesus...I cried just reading this, so I have no doubt that you cried actually experiencing it.

I'm pleased to hear it was such a good one. Appy burrday indeed.

Let's enjoy us being 40 together for the next couple of weeks, at which time I will be turning back my clock to my 39th, for the third time.

Happy Birthday.

Forty...Happiest of Birthdays and years, Miz V. Your pre-birthday postings have been wonderful musings of the essence of time. How occasionally one can just be there, in the moment, and aware of passages.

And now you're 40 and, guess what...it sounds like such a big number but you are still not much more than a girl. I promise you that. This year I will be 60. It's a number that sounds so very out there that I can hardly say it... probably a bit like 40 sounded to you, just a day or so ago. xoxoxo

I'm glad that you had a wonderful day, and what a fantastic present to have Tricky say happy birthday (and the camera is a bonus too). Sounds as if it was heavenly.
