It's my birthday today - I'm 41.

I don't feel 41; I don't really feel any particular age.  Some days I'm 20, some days I'm 90 (thanks, pain!), and some days (okay, most days) I'm a teenage boy.

Yes, I have a juvenile sense of humour. 

But today I feel simply a bit fragile, as I'm in migraine recovery mode, where my head might start hurting any minute, and I feel the pressure, but it's being kept at bay for the moment.

Thanks for the LJ birthday gift, fabricdragon ; I am touched.  :)

My tree is decorated (vintage all the way - it's white, with mostly vintage or vintage-look ornaments), the creche is up (or down - it's under the sideboard that sits next to the tree), and all my vintage Christmas bits are out (did you know felt Santas are collectible?  I didn't - I just like them.  I have six or seven of varying ages).

I'm going to spend my day on the sofa with pillows, and maybe order a Cheesy Bites Pizza Hut pizza for dinner.  Because I can.


  ...to me.

Happy Birthday too you!

And speaking of your creche, I am going to have to go back and hunt up the links to your creche story from awhile back. The one with the turtle (I believe), I remember really enjoying that series of posts.

Have a wonderful day!

welcome to 41! I'm enjoying all 2 weeks of it so far...

Yes, I don't feel any particular age either. Nice to have that reinforced outside my own skull.

Many happy returns of the day! (Slightly belated.)

And I know what you mean about age - I never really did get over being five. Bare feet and puddles are fun!!!

PS My friends and I believe birthdays are for celebrating the fact that you're here in this particular space-time reality with us. So I'm celebrating because I love reading your blog. It's a lovely mix of fun stuff, beautiful stuff - OMG beautiful stuff, your jackets in particular are to die for - and a lot of stuff that makes me think and feel, hauling me out of my comfortable little corner with passion and intelligence. Thank you for being here. For real.

HAppy Birthday!
Happy Birthday~ hope you feel better soon! Does light affect your headaches? I get cluster headaches...a really bad one every few years, seems they have a cycle, and being in a dark room REALLY helps....even more than the maxalt dr prescribed...(it makes my heart race so much, I take it only as a last resort)
