Children love having birthdays. I quite enjoyed them myself until I got to about 30, then I went through a period of getting a bit grumpy about the whole birthday thing. But these days I don’t mind them at all. So far today:
Woke up with migraine that had been brewing up all night – boo
Husband presents me with a copy of Hilary Mantel’s Bring up the Bodies which I’ve been itching to read since it came out, but was waiting for the softback version – hurrah!
I have to go to work for half the day, and the office is freezing – boo
Finish with a meeting at our local friendly cafe, Pleasant Stores, and am treated to a veggie muffin – hurrah!
Jeans are feeling a bit tight and am reminded of urgency of nipping middle aged spread in the bud before I start looking like a veggie muffin – boo
Get home to find the lovely Charles Johnson at Obsessed with Pipework wants one of my poems for April 2013 issue – hurrah!
I see husband has hidden a bar of chocolate in the fridge for later – hurrah!
After popping the pink and yellow pills, migraine is now downgraded to mild headache – hurrah!
So overall a pretty good day. I might even try to write a poem.
