Another birthday..............



Today is my birthday - I'm 48. I feel 48, but that's fine, I don't mean that in a downbeat, depressed way, it's just that I seem to be comfortable with the age I am - which is right and good. I thought I was in for a bad day, as I got a sudden hit of flu-like symptoms yesterday. This is how bad I felt - I took Ibuprofen and went to bed for two hours!! LOL I know my body very well, and the best thing for me when I'm ill is to stop "doing things" straight away, unless they are very urgent (like the mobile library yesterday.............:) ) It gives the body time to rest and regroup, and left fitter to fight off anything lurking around afterwards. I took honey and lemon and elder rob too, so plenty of vitamin C and goodness there. As a result, I'm fighting fit this morning apart from a sore throat and a bit of a cough - ready to tackle another 48 years I reckon.
I got some lovely presents from OH - they were chosen by me, which suits us both - he never knows what I've got already, so it's easier this way.




Teh books are two very new ones from Permanent Publications (http://www.permanent-publications.co.uk/); Through the Eye of a Needle by John-Paul Flintoff argues that "the way we look at our clothing influences the way we look at the environment, the economy and life itself". The second one is Patrick Whitefield's new book, The Living Landscape - how to read and understand it. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into those.......... I also chose a music CD - Gaelic Women, and a set of handmade bronze sock needles.

Very content.

Now I'm off to muck out the goats. As Jack Kornfield says - after ecstasy, the laundry LOL
