It’s my birthday, and I wished for this

This, being…

one insomniac coughing fit so energetic I blew out an eardrum (brills)

two naps, three boxes of chocolate, four new books (better)

one cafe breakfast and a bottle of the best French lemonade we ever had

one birthday cake made from piled-up scones-and-cream-and-jam

and one boy in tractor wellies, one boy popping the buttons off my coat, andΒ one boy holding my hand under the table.

I’ve never had a birthday where I felt worse and enjoyed myself more. Seriously, these boys. They make my twenty-eight.

(I would also really like to be in bed at this point, but I’ve got another fifteen minutes till my next bout of cold medicine. So, like, a million photos? Yep, good idea.)

  1. I was just thinking – 28 years ago this morning I thought you were the most wonderful thing thing I ever saw – and that I had no idea then just how wonderful you would turn out 28 years later πŸ™‚ xxxx

    • Yes, we are! I get a bit tired of big Facebook announcements, so we didn’t really do one. We’ve just been telling people when they ask – though that system sort of falls down when you know so many people overseas!

      And thanks! Are you feeling better? Hope so. Xx

  2. Happy Belated Birthday Rachel! Looks like it was a wonderful day. Glad you have such great boys to take care of you!
