As much as I don't like getting old, I guess its better than the alternative. So I celebrated another birthday yesterday, number 78. It is so nice having lots of friends in the village. Jan invited me to a morning tea in her home with a few other ladies. Then Bill and I with some other couples from the village went to our local cafe for lunch. It was so nice to be able to go out to celebrate. (We haven't had any Covid cases for two weeks in Queensland.)
In the morning I wake up to see that the Balloon Fairy has left birthday balloons on our front fence. (A village tradition)
Cafe 63 also sell flowers so I got a bunch from Bill.
When we arrived home there were more flowers on the doorstep from daughter, Sonya and family. I got a book from Carol, a biography, my favourite. I also got many other lovely gifts from my neighbours and loads of birthday cards.
In the evening I had a zoom party with all the family, who live in other states and cannot visit us because our border is closed. So I feel blessed that I had such a lovely day even when the world is in a bad way. I'm so glad we moved here where we have lots of friends who are like family.
