For some reason I have been really low lately- but today's my birthday (60) and I realise now how very lucky I am. I've had 15 cards, loads of lovely presents, I've been to the park and the pub for lunch with one son and his children, and had lots of Facebook greetings. My other son is collecting my husband and me in an hour, to go out for tea. Then I'll get presents from both sons and grandchildren, all together.
I hope it doesn't sound as though I'm bragging - I'm not, I'm just feeling really thankful to have all these people around who care about me (only a week ago I was somehow convinced that nobody liked me - that old black dog was very bad last week)
Jealous of her relationship - daughter married last month
Haven't found a happy story - giving up reading news
Wonder where the time went - empty nest syndrome
