It was my birthday on Sunday and for some reason, all day, I wanted to sing the unbirthday song…even though that would have been the exact opposite of what day it actually was. Now I am singing it and I’m not lying one bit, not one tiny bit.
I had a lovely birthday, Mr Sunshine came out and beamed on me all day and my charming prince treated me like a princess. The breakfast fairy brought chocolate croissants of goodness to start the day and the coffee was the yummy kind. The prince and I went for a sunny drive out to ma & pa’s and I was fed birthday cake of the carrot variety…a great idea as anything too creamy doesn’t tend to get along with me. We planned a dinner at a golden movie, to keep my hip happy and reclining, however exhaustion soon swept in and the plans lost out to cuddles on the couch. Not to be kept down, the plans revived themselves last night and hip allowed them to morph into an actual dinner reservation. We found a gorgeous little restaurant in South Melbourne, O’Connell’s, and enjoyed an incredibly impressive dinner…worth every penny for the relaxed atmosphere, snappy service and delicious everything. I think the best part of the whole birthday was getting to go out like a normal person…it has been quite some time since hip has allowed excursions!
Now I get to revel in the other fun part of birthdays…playing with my presents! Mr. Charming bought me the prettiest paintbrushes I have ever seen! They are Indian sable with gorgeous long handles and multi-coloured bristles. I can’t wait to see what exciting things I can do with them! I’m enjoying a new view in my lounge room, thanks to the breakfast fairy, who also brought me an adorable little painting of bunnies in a storm at sea…adding to the lounge room sprucing are two different types of tiger lilies and a cute little cupcake soap in a box…oh Audy, don’t ya just love birthdays?
I feel like I have been really busy or something, my creative projects have been moving very slowly…silly hip and it’s penchant for not letting me sit up at my easel! I’m taking it easy with everything though, my jaw swells at the slightest anything and my hip and knee hardly go down at all. I’m sure it would all seem less confusing without my fuzzy head. I do hope the doctor is going to tell me it’s a happy, easy treatment that I have to look forward to…I tells ya, it gets mighty frustrating always waiting to find out the next step, but not really know what is going on with my own body…
Love & Finger Crossing,
P.S. I loved hearing your stories of tween angst! More from my vault soon….
