My birthday last week was lovely. I took the day off from work (shouldn’t everybody get their birthday off from work? I do think so!), slept in and then spent 4 hours on Skype and FaceTime with family and friends. It was wonderful! It’s the next-best thing to actually spending your birthday with the people that are most important to you. I love technology for this!
After I got off the phone, we made a (very late) breakfast of waffles and strawberries. Big pot of coffee included (of course).
I had originally planned to go somewhere for a day trip or something, but we ended up hanging out at home for the rest of the afternoon, I opened my birthday mail, I took a birthday nap (don’t mind if I do!) and then J took me out to dinner at “LowBrau”, a (fairly) new local brewery in town. They call themselves the “German beer hall” and have a variety of delicious sausages and side dishes and it was just the perfect casual dinner on a warm spring night. Just as good as any steak dinner, if you ask me!
I wanted to thank all of you who thought of me and sent emails, texts, WhatsApp and Facebook messages, or even snail mail cards and gifts. It meant so very much to me!
