How I spent my birthday

I turned 28 yesterday.

I started the day with french toast and some fruit (blueberries and raspberries) drizzled with syrup. SO delicious. It makes me toes curl just thinking about it.

Afterwards I gave Amelia a box of Q-tips to destroy while I took a nice long hot shower.

Nathaniel made some food for himself and Amelia so that I could go out for lunch with some girlfriends. (I forgot to bring my camera). I had a chocolate cupcake afterwards insteatd of cake.

When I got home Amelia was napping and Nathaniel was writing me a card. The dishes were done and the house had been tidied up. Hmmm it is amazing how the simple things can make me so happy.

Later that afternoon I went for a long (mostly uphill) walk with a friend and fed some of the local horses. We made plans to do some riding and scrap booking later this week, which I am looking forward to.

We ate a low key dinner of spaghetti with lentils. I tend to cook vegetarian meals when Nathaniel is working evenings. After Amelia went to bed I watched "the hills". I am embarrassed to admit that I am slightly addicted to the drama. Their world is so different from my own and although I have no desire for such a lifestyle, I find it interesting to observe.

I played dress up in my room for the first time in a long time. I used to do it more often after a stressful day at work, but now I find I would rather do other things with my downtime. I took the opportunity to get ride of some items I have not worn in years.
