Today is my birthday. As one person said, I've now reached the age where I've officially arrived at the answer to life, the universe, and everything. I'd never thought of my age that way but I like it.
Ian made me a lovely double-chocolate cupcakes (from a muffin mix) with mascarpone cheese icing and vanilla frozen yogourt. Yummy! He also made dinner for me.
I've received many birthday wishes from all over the place which I've really appreciated, especially this year. This birthday still feels sort of bittersweet and melancholy but I'm happy that I'm around to celebrate another birthday. I hope there are many more birthdays in my future.
