Well another lengthy wait before I decide to do an entry!
I’m always surprised anyone still reads….other than the obvious die-hard readers. (For which I am truly thankful!)
So another birthday came and went… It was fun, with the aid of facebook and the birthday’s notifications everyone you know is informed of the mournful day. (It was for me anyhow!) 42! Goodness, how did that happen? Here I am, a woman of forty two with two grown children. I sometimes have to check this life is really mine, I check the reflection in the mirror is really me and I check that the scales aren’t faulty!
Thank you to all of my friends who wished me a happy birthday through one medium or another. The girlies at work made the entire day a lovely day. Considering I WAS at work that’s quite an achievement. Sadly it would seem that my family and friends truly believe that me and my home smell… well considering all of the smellies and candles and aromatherapy bits and pieces I received…. I’m assuming they are trying to tell me something. Of course all of those things I do love, along with squid.
My dad in law decided to tell me that I almost got some squid but the fish market man didn’t have any left! That would have been the icing on the cake!
My dad bought me a smart phone! Me, getting a smart phone! I couldn’t even fathom that you needed to read the emails from the provider and click a link to activate the 3G (3 Gnomes??) and of course the keyboard is too small for me, it has nothing to do with me having stumpy fat fingers. Until they slim down I’m afraid my texts will be littered with typos. Finally! I have a valid excuse for typos! See, the phone IS smart!
Along with greetings from family friends there was also an email greeting from someone who I haven’t considered a friend for quite sometime. I appreciated the greeting; it was very nice of this person to remember my birthday. Had the boot been on the other foot, I doubt I would have done the same. I gave thanks, no olive branch was offered or received or would have been accepted but at least it’s a civil non-friendship!
Time marches on, we all get older, most get wiser, some of us have the reverse happen and become somewhat dumber…. I blame it all on age!
As the family unit trundles through its daily rituals I find myself happy in life in general. I find myself comfortable with time if not with age and I find myself content with what I have but assurances that if I was offered more I would become no less content!
It was my attention to share some photos of the latest family members but sadly I’m on a different pc. I may add them at a later date.
Allen has added to his ‘reptile house’ with two non reptile members. They are Ares and Apollo, not Gods but dwarf hamsters! Some may see the resemblance. Andrea has Polo, the new Syrian hamster not minty confectionary.
They are all as sweet as can be… I’m guessing they are happy even though a smile is not visible. One of the dwarf hamsters tends to look a little grumpy on occasion (That may be Ares, well he is the Dark God of war!) but I think it’s due to the noise of the crickets in the reptile food drawer. I have to admit, some people say they hear bells and I hear crickets. I wish the Bearded Dragon would consider a vegetarian lifestyle or the equivalent in a diet of non-noisy foodstuffs ….
Back to the entry, it was really just to say thank you. Thank you.
