feeling overwhelmed

I just got home from picking up from school to find an express post satchel on my doorstep. Enclosed was an incredibly well packaged parcel, as is typical of the lovely Mrs Hardly.
She bought me the most stupendous book I have ever received as a gift, I am stunned and speechless and ever so grateful, thank you thank you thank you to Mrs Hardly!

29 Today 29 Today...

It's my birthday and for the first year in a long time, I'm NOT depressed!

I think it might have a lot to do with the fact that I have been saying I'm 29 for a few months now, so it hasn't come as a shock to me today.

On waking this morning I was presented with a lovely handmade card from my beautiful daughters and a most thoughtful gift (I nearly cried when he gave it to me) from my sweetie who had somehow smuggled a present into my house without my knowledge last night! It was so nice to wake up with him next to me on my birthday :o)
