Lovely day – thank you

I had a really good day on my birthday yesterday. The weather was sunny if a bit cold. I started the day by getting some good news at work. I had a lot of my colleagues wish me a happy birthday; the lunch served was a very tasty pesto pasta dish. And things just seemed to run smoothly all day.

I left work a little early and went to get some ice cream and some chocolate dipped strawberries. I ate the ice cream and saved the berries for later. I had a good stroll home and when I got in the door, my other half was waiting there for me with some pink roses. We did a little walk down to the old apartment to collect some things, but apart from that we took the day off.

We ordered some lovely tapas and enjoyed a bottle of bubbles and the wonderful chocolate dipped strawberries. The champagne glasses were packed down in a box somewhere so some of our small beer glasses had to do. But we still enjoyed food and drink while watching Thunder Force on Netflix. If you are looking for a silly movie that is easy entertainment, but quite fun to watch, I can recommend it.

All day I was receiving nice well wishes from family and friends in so many channels, like from my lovely readers of the blog. This really ensured that it was a very nice and special day for me. Thank you for contributing to it! Turns out, once again, that even if I was born on the same day as the Chernobyl accident, the day is not just filled with tragedy.

I went to bed very tired, but also very happy from the lovely day. Today it is back to work on clearing and cleaning the old apartment. I will be very gland once it is over and I can just focus on the one place. But there is still a week of cleaning left before that happens. To top it of I forgot my computer at home today and had to go back for it, so my morning walk was a lot longer than planned.

Hope you are all doing well and that the day treated you good too.

    My uncle left Oslo to help at Chernobyl shortly after the accident. He later published a paper on it. I may still have a copy.

  4. Sounds like the other half is as sweet as you are. Glad you found the day uplifting and celebratory. An extra walk is good for us sometimes. πŸ™‚ You’ll get it all done soon.

  5. It’s nice when everything falls into place. I have found that as I get older, I don’t require much beyond a favorite food and a good movie too. πŸ™‚
