It's been my birthday today. I have a stinking cold and a crap new haircut and was not much looking forward to turning 32 (urgh) but I ended up having a lovely day. Graham got me pain au chocolat for breakfast then Dulcie and I went to Bounce & Rhyme (she was awake through the whole thing!) and then out for a cup of tea with some other mums and babies. We walked into town past the charity shop with the dolls' house and it was still there so we went in and I started the negotiations rolling. I have to phone the manager with my best offer tomorrow morning. We met my friend Bernadette and four-year-old Rudi for a lovely lunch and then wandered round the shops where I spent my birthday money on clothes for Dulcie, which was fun. When we got home I had lots of cards waiting for me, Graham made me a nice dinner, my sister and parents phoned and we spent the evening watching Britain's Got Talent. And then to top it all off, Dulcie got herself off to sleep shortly after I put her in her cot for the first time, albeit at about 10.30pm. And now I am going to bed too, feeling most satisfied with the day :) Happy birthday to me!
