Today I turn 40, and I must say, I feel quite happy about it. I received these lovely cards from my kids, and took the picture of them with my new camera.
In the photo of the camera, you will also see my new necklace (doesn’t the Fireman have great taste in jewellery?). It is vintage Mexican silver, and is very comfortable to wear. Note to self, next time clean the bathroom mirror before taking self portrait. But the best bit of my birthday celebrations will have to wait until January, when I get to relax in a hotel in Paris, without my children… Of course, I will miss them madly, but that is part of the fun of being a parent.
Apart from those lovely gifts, I am running around with a million jobs to do. There is too much happening in our lives at the moment. I am meeting the accountant tomorrow to do our taxes, we move house in 8 days, and am trying to get information together for potential business buyers. As well as this, it is Older Daughter’s birthday tomorrow, and her party on Saturday, and the builder keeps giving me new jobs to do. Today it is wardrobe handles and lights. Luckily, my parents come to visit today, and my mother doesn’t know it yet, but she is cooking me dinner (oh, and cupcakes for Older Daughter’s class tomorrow).
