27 july



It's been my birthday today but rather than doing anything majorly exciting, the children have been out at a friend's party and I've spent the day in the company of the tiler who squeezed us in at short notice and this was his only slot. Oh, and the window cleaner popped round too.

Not the most celebratory of days do I hear you utter? Ah, but my bathroom has been tidied up, the downstairs loo re-floored and my windows positively sparkle now. I've had some lovely gifts and wonderful cards made by the children but it's funny how getting older changes our views on birthdays. It will be the boy's big day later this week but I dare say it'll take more than clean windows to make it memorable!

  7. Happy birthday, Kate! You sound very content so it must have been a good one. I like shiny windows and clean floors too, especially when someone else does them for me so it all makes perfect sense to me. T x

There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
