Today I turned 46. How did that happen?
An oddly mixed day, but very enjoyable...
A phone call this morning started: "Happy birthday, old girl...."
Another phone call... a very loud happy birthday is sung...a duet...I can't for the life of me work out who it is singing. How I laughed when all was revealed.
An early walk in the woods, just me, Walter and the sounds of nature
Picking nettle shoots for soup
Pottering in the garden....thinking some pots could do with a scrub
Scrubbing algae off a wall in my courtyard
Painting said wall
A gin and tonic with my neighbours this afternoon, followed by an impromptu barbeque
Making and eating tiffin cake
Receiving a beautiful handmade card from Simone!
Sitting down for a while with a copy of The Edible Garden, and feeling inspired (I've been following the series on iplayer, have you seen it?)
All in all, a pretty blissful day....even if I am having trouble relating to Diana, age 46...
