Yes, this rainy day is my 62nd. A friend once said "it's a birthday MONTH, not just day." I like that. Far less pressure to have "the day" be crammed with fun. So, as part of the month's celebration I did the Dublin Art Tour.
The time of year now has some sadness to it. Last year, my Dad died on Oct 4th so I had a very quiet birthday. And this year, in fact today, my sister-in-law is having a biopsy re: lymph node issues.
Never-the-less, I am determined to remain cheerful and upbeat about my own self and life.
So cheers to all and a glass of champagne, a few macarons from some wonderful Paris sweet shop. In above book Christopher Robin recalls what he gave Eeyore for his b'day. "I gave him a box of paints to paint things with." Sounds good to me.
