It’s my birthday. Hooray! Officially I am 33 but I am claiming back the GST and am therefore only 30. Again.
I am a big fan of making birthday celebrations last for at least one week and if you can get longer out of it all the better. And it’s just as well because I find myself sick on my birthday.
So as my celebrations started last week and continue into the coming weekend my day today will be spent doing anything that involves lying down. I have DVDs and a great new book (Those Faraday Girls by Australian author Monica McInerney) that is delightfully long and could easily contain two whole novels: great value that one! I picked it up in Perth airport a few days ago on my way home from swimming with the dolphins in Bunbury–an early birthday treat.
Perhaps this is why am now ill. Perhaps too much celebrating can be a bad thing?
No. On second thoughts that cannot possibly be true. The more joy and fun in all of our lives the better and not just on our birthdays. I invite you all to do something celebratory today too. Just because.
So happy birthday to me and pass another round of cake over–the nausea is just about to clear 🙂
