I’m 45 today. If I’m lucky enough to live to 90 then I have lived half my life. I hope I’m still riding my bike at 90. You’re only as old as you feel or, as Groucho Marx once said, “You’re only as old as the woman you feel”. I heard another quote recently that I like better. It’s a Chinese proverb: “You’re only as old as your spine”. Eat well, get lots of exercise, and look after your back by not sitting for long periods.
I’ve had a fantastic birthday. My company gives us all our birthday off work so I’ve had a lovely day of relaxing followed by dinner at Foodstory.
How can anyone think vegan food is boring?
Some street art in Aberdeen.
Ben surprised me by buying this lovely dress for me as a gift. He’s never bought me a dress before and I never expected him to have such good taste in women’s dresses. After nearly 15 years of marriage he’s still amazing me. It’s got a lovely vintage shape to it and is covered in a bicycle print.
Elizabeth made me a carrot cake which we’re about to eat so I’d better go.
