Best Birthday So Far...

DSC00295

Huge Bouquet from Aunty Ann

One of my younger cousins turned 21 a couple of weeks ago.  In the morning she went up in a hot air balloon, in the afternoon she did a bungee jump over a ravine and a bridge swing, in the early evening she jumped out of a plane, and to cap it off, had a meal on a cruise yacht.  On top of all this, she was in Australia!  Of course my birthday was nowhere near as exciting, yet it was just as wonderful in other ways...

Firstly, I made it to 39, which in my position is a huge blessing.  It's the first birthday in years I've not been depressed about aging!  I've never been a birthday person, and tended to avoid doing anything for them.  Secondly, I was overwhelmed by the amount of birthday wishes, greetings, emails, phone calls, and FB messages I received, and I feel truly blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family rooting for me.

Bramble doesn't do birthdays! 

(New Earrings too!  Silver Dream Catchers)

I also got some beautiful gifts: a healing quartz crystal pendant and another piece of quartz to put with my Buddha, loads of pamper stuff including the most fabulous Molton Brown smellies!  I took my little one for a riding lesson so had lots of lovely horsey time too, and later hubby cooked a delicious evening meal.  Also had lots of visitors and phone calls, so it was relaxed but very sociable.  And thankfully I only had a few hours of pain, and didn't let it get me down (somehow!).

Out of interest, my last birthday in Spain was also wonderfully special.  I wrote a little story about it that somehow ended up here.

Now I look forward to my 40th (and 50th etc.,) which I'm planning  to spend with NeeNee in Mexico, with lots of horse-riding and swimming with dolphins :)

Almost as a belated birthday gift I got a call from the oncologist saying my tablets are ready for collection tomorrow morning - the gift of life I'm hoping - please keep fingers crossed (or better still visualise them working and curing me!).

Thanks to everyone who sent messages etc.  You all helped to make it a wonderful day filled with hope and positivity and light.  I owe you all one!

Happy Belated Birthday - sounds like you had a lovely time. And what beautiful earrings, I hope they work (although I'd probably impale myself on them if I wore them in bed...).
Everything crossed for the magic pills to do their stuff :-)

Love the photo:-)

What a great day - simple but appreciated. I'd far prefer that to throwing myself off cliffs and out of planes:-)

Also enjoyed reading about your 26th. That was a special day eh.

Hurrah for the tablets!

So thrilled you had such a wonderful birthday. Love the photo of you and Bramble.

Am visualising and rooting for you and looking forward to hearing about your trip to Mexico after your next birthday, it sounds like it's going to be fab.
