It’s my birthday today, and also a PD day. I wasn’t sure if that was a good thing, or a bad thing, but so far, I’d say it’s leaning towards the plus side.
For starters, I didn’t have to make lunches, which is a huge, giant, golden egg of a gift in and of itself. Without the usual morning rush, the kids were able to toddle about in jammies for a few hours and everything felt relaxed and fun. So that was good.
Plus there were presents – pie related presents! I am a happy pie maker today.
So far the kids and I have been to the movies (Puss in Boots, nothing outstanding but at least it wasn’t actively offensive like the Smurfs – and in fact, upon reflection, I actually liked it even better than the Shrek movies which I find a little manic and too-too clever at times), then we got take out for lunch and had a picnic on the floor, which was good.
Plans for this afternoon: cake making, napping, mad Playmobil party. Tonight: WORLD TRIVIA NIGHT, best night of the year.
So overall – despite the tickle at the back of my throat which is DEFINITELY NOT the start of the cold that the Little Miss has – it’s been a good day. And it’s getting even better.
Turns out PD days and birthdays go rather nicely together.
