Today is my birthday: every year I dread it for no particular reason apart from the fact I’m getting older. I can be found muttering darkly weeks before the actual event, from January onward actually.
Well, the day has arrived and it would be churlish to carry on with the pathetic self-pity when I woke up to cards, gifts, texts and so on from so many people.
I am very, very lucky to have many amazing people in my life, I have no right to complain about anything at all.
So, in that spirit, I will be sipping on French champagne by the time you guys read this.
I will be celebrating, not moaning about the inevitable because, older or not: life is really, really good right now—I am blessed in so many ways and it is not something I should ever forget.
Ps: I am aware I have probably already used up my quota of selfies for the entire year but…I don’t really care 😜
