I am now at least 20 years older than I feel and approaching one of those ages that we all feel we will never be. It was a really nice day though given the ambulatory constraints.
I got a Wii fit balance board and it is a good job I couldn't use it as it was busy all day just keeping up with the kids.
Who impatiently awaited their turn.
As you can see the day was a bit exhausting for the only resident functioning adult.
An alternative view of the kids.
Beth gave me a chimnea, a present that is also for Bruce who's birthday is in December, and something we have wanted for some time.
Then a pedicure for me, a real luxury and necessary for the mental health of the hospital staff who will be assessing my progress very shortly.
These patterns intrigued us and no one was quite sure how to explain them, something for google in the future.
My birthday tea, which arrived after a few squabbles in the kitchen were resolved, was delicious. Well done Will for a marvelous fist mega cook, this is the child who swore he was never going to cook a few months ago. And thanks Jo, Jamie, Nick and Beth for kitchen help and support.
Then for the cake, something we would usually make, but under the circumstances we decided that life is too short.
All in all a lovely day.
