Birthday Eve

It is my Birthday tomorrow.  I have put out the garden furniture in anticipation of a fine weekend.  To be honest, I am not really looking forward to the day.  I am still not feeling in the best of health and I feel under pressure to 'enjoy' myself.

The blank places on the mantel piece usually filled with cards, serve as a reminder of the family and friends who are no longer with us.  This saddens me.

Another year notched up on the planet.  I guess that is worth a celebration in itself.

Happy birthday for tomorrow.
Just take the day as it comes, take the weekend as it comes you will have a great time.

Don't try to enjoy your day - it's yours to feel just how you like! I hope though that you will feel good and have a nice day. I have always thought that like Christmas there is a certain pressure to be seen to be having fun when in fact that is often not the case. Accept how you feel and don't flog yourself to be happy if you are not. A hug from one who knows what you mean!

Simone,
Wishing you a light heart and sweet memories, strong health of body and spirit in your new year ahead. I hope some of us "new friends" help you move joyfully along that bending, beckoning path called life.

Hugs.

Just do what you want to do on your special day - if that means curling up alone with a good book then that is your choice. Hope you begin to feel stronger soon, wishing you a peaceful day, take care:)

Simone, I hope your birthday surprises you with loveliness. Like that primrose blooming its heart out just waiting for you to notice. Just relax and let the day unfold.

Here's to a wonderful year in the days ahead!

(Wish I could share one of my rose cupcakes with you!!)

I spotted your post yesterday, but had to visit again today for wishing you a very happy Birthday, I hope you're spending it in the garden, since the radio said you're having sunny and warm weather in London :)
