I love birthdays! I'm not at all bashful in letting the world know that I celebrated mine on Sunday, 23rd April. Life is a gift to be celebrated.

The traditional celebration in our family is to have 'birthday breakfast'. It started way back in 1993 and consists of the whole shebang for a party done at 6am so that everyone can get on with their daily obligations without the birthday person missing out: chips, cherrios, lollies, icecream, creaming soda and birthday cake. It has its advantage that the indigestion that one is in for for the rest of the day doesn't effect the good night sleep one has at the end of the day.

This year birthday breakfast didn't happen. My kids had to work early in the day so they opted for Kashmiri roast lamb which they put together on Sunday night. Paul baked a choc-orange marble cake. Everything was all delightful. We all had a great evening.

Next Monday is the Labour Day holiday here, so I am going to celebrate all over again with friends. Any excuse for a party

Thank you to all the people who sent me e-cards or sent messages. I appreciated them. My next B-I-G birthday bash is on the Easter weekend in 2011. Over the next few months, I'm putting together the 5 year plan and setting goals for what I hope to achieve before then. Stay tuned.

Happiness & laughter always,
