Birthday Date with Matthew McConaughey
Today I became year older and I am truly grateful. I don't mind getting older and all that comes with it, I am just happy with everyday I have with my family. Last year I was not sure if my time was going to be limited but I was one of the lucky ones, so today was a day to celebrate life. I had a lovely lunch with my 'boys' and then we went to the cinema where we watched Interstellar, you can keep your romantic stuff, my sons and I love geeky sci fi, and I could listen to Matthew McConaughey talk all night, that drawl!! He's not bad to look at either :)
What did I get for my birthday I hear you ask? Well I bought myself a washing machine! It wasn't planned but my old old machine, that had originally been my dads eventually gave up. After a few days of having dripping washing all over the house I was taking grumpiness to a new level so ordered a new one which will hopefully last me many years. A washing machine is the one thing I would really hate to be without. I have done my time in the past without a washing machine, boiling nappies on the stove and struggling to scrub and wring out the bearded ones oil covered work jeans and overalls by hand. We don't have the equipment to do these things by hand anyway. I remember my nanny had a big mangle to put the washing through, hard physical work, I don't think they had to worry about 'bingo' wings in those days. What is the one thing that would push you over the edge if you had to do without?
I also received flowers and chocolates and bought this lovely face mask I found in the local sewing shop. It was a bit worse for wear so I got it for half price. You are probably wondering why I need a face mask, it's nothing kinky :) Our band plays at the New Years Eve celebrations at St Ives and we like to bling up a bit with face masks and feathers so I thought this would be perfect.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
