A happy occasion!

And, as if free tickets to Impressionist Gardens weren’t enough – today is my 50th birthday!

Roses for my birthday (from Celebration Cakes, Crown Street, Aberdeen)

I know some people who have been quite funereal about their 50th birthdays, as if it were a terribly sad leaf to turn, and a day on which they needed commiseration.  Well, I just feel very blessed to have my health (including mental, I think), such a great family, great friends, and to have had so many opportunities in my life.  I’ve faced some real challenges, particularly as an adoptive mother, but I’m so grateful for all the help I’ve been given, in everything.

And I adore my cake, because as you may have noticed, I really do love roses.

So hooray!



  1. Happy birthday!

  2. A happy belated birthday, Christine.
