Happy Birthday Roxy!!!!

Some of you may have noticed the appearance of a little fuzzy head in some of the photos I have shared on this blog, and today, that little fuzzy head turned 4!

I’ve had Roxy in my life since she was a teeny tiny pup and in that time we have been on many adventures together – camping, festivals, long walks where we get lost in nature and the biggest so far – moving to my own home, just me and her.  She’s my shadow, always beside me wherever I go, whether its laying on the bathroom mat while I have a bath, cuddling up to me on the sofa when I want to read or watch tv, sitting in the kitchen while I cook and clean, she is always there.

She’s funny and sweet, understands more than she lets on, she listens and talks back in that way only dogs and their owners would understand and she brings me so much joy every day.  So today, Roxanne, I’m celebrating you and how wonderful you are!  Happy Birthday Puper!

Happy Birthday To Meeeee!!!!!

Yesterday I turned 30 something…I never thought I’d see the day that I forget what age I am and always assumed that it was an old person thing, but I guess once you reach a certain age (over 30 in my case) it stops being something you define by a number, instead you are grateful that you are still here and experiencing life.  Age begins to not define you anymore, and fades into insignificance, instead we are measured on our ability and skills to do things, where we are in life and what we have achieved.  And I think I’ve achieved a lot in my life right up to this point but those achievements can be saved for another post.  Today I want to share with you my actual Birthday and what I got up to!

I woke up later than normal and had snuggles in bed with my dog Roxy, then I got up and had a shower, coffee and breakfast.  I received cards in the post from my brother Ben, his wife and my niece and nephew along with some really lovely drawings that they had done especially for me!  I phoned Ben and had a really lovely chat with him and spoke about my arrangements to go up there over the weekend, I can’t wait to go and visit them!!!!

My friend, Sam, came round at around 1:30pm to take me out to lunch.  He came baring gifts for me including a new candle and candle holder, a drawer unit for my bathroom, sweets, a cake and some other gifts, I felt really spoiled.

We headed to a local pub for lunch where we both had a main course and dessert, I was also treated to a bottle of wine at lunch which was a really nice treat!  After lunch we popped to Asda and bought a cake to share with my family then headed up to my parents house and spent a bit of time with them.  Mum and Dad bought me some car parts so I could get my car fixed – it had broken down the week before so their present was really useful to me!  Dad said he would fix it for me when he was able to!  I got to see my other brother Richard while we were at Mum and Dads house, he called in on his way back from work to wish me a Happy Birthday!

Sam and I came back here after seeing my Mum and Dad and we sat and chatted and watched a bit of tv before Sam left to travel back to his house (around 11:45pm) and I headed off to bed!

I had a really lovely day and am blessed to have friends and family around me that I could share my day with!
