Another Day, Another Year

CIMG0475-001

Strange, isn’t it. One morning every year one wakes up to find oneself one year older than the day before.

I had a  good day. One friend took me out to lunch, and others sent postcards or parcels or telephoned or texted or left messages on Facebook. The parcels above were from my friends G & B who came to visit last week; I saved them to open at breakfast today.

It’s nice to be remembered. Thanks.

Birthday quotes:

Thirty was so strange for me. I've really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult.
C. S. Lewis

There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents, and only one for birthday presents, you know.
Lewis Carroll

You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
Bob Hope

‘We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet. ‘Even longer,' Pooh answered.
A.A. Milne

    1. Thanks Sandra. No need for excuses - I can't really expect blog-friends to remember my birthday as it's not on my profile ;)

  3. Happy birthday, and the gifts in the photo look lovely. It is good to be treated by friends and relatives on "your day."

  4. Belated happy birthday wishes from me, too! Can't quite work out what the presents are; one is a pen, and the other once could be a scarf, but the third?

    1. It's a candle - or at least so I think... I've not tried to light it yet! I think I must make sure to put it on some kind of tray before I do...

  7. As it's a month since you wrote this and as I've already wished you a happy birthday I shall now copy the Mad Hatter or the March Hare (I can't recall which) and wish you a happy unbirthday.

    1. Thanks Graham. Actually I did get an un-birthday present today - well, it was a book I'd ordered for myself, but still!
