I think the year is getting better and better as yesterday we hosted a birthday BBQ at our house for both M and his mum.
We had been nervously checking the weather for the previous few days and on the day itself, it wasn’t super sunny, but it was lovely and warm. We did have a happy time opening pressies, cooking and eating copious amounts of sausages, chicken and vegetables.
Then of course we sang Happy Birthday as we brought out 2 x specially prepared and totally homemade birthday cakes/meringues. We really did have an amazing time and I think everyone went home feeling full and happy.
It was such a contrast as last year was such a very sad time for me (explained here) and so it was lovely to have a much happier memory in the bank.
I also write this post at the end of a very lovely Sunday on which the sun has shone for the entire day and I have the not totally unexpected sunburned shoulders. Happy times are once again falling upon me and man it feels good.
