Always a ‘middle’ day

It’s the 2nd of January – the day in between New Year’s Day and my birthday. I always feel a bit out of sorts on the 2nd. It’s the last day of being whatever age I am at the time (thirty-three in this case), and also usually a quiet day in between two celebratory ones.

Today wasn’t totally quiet – Geth and I did go round to see our friends Kieran and Lisa and their gorgeous six-month-old twins Felicity and Claudia, who are now at the age where they’re sitting up and taking notice of the world around them. I then arrived back at Mum and Dad’s to find that Dad had made my birthday cake and left the bowl for me to scrape! SO DELICIOUS. In some ways I’m still more ‘going on four’ than ‘going on thirty-four’.

Cake and fizzy tomorrow. I can’t wait.
