Yey...I'm the Birthday Princess!
Today I was given lots of wonderful gifts including a few books, dvds, a couple of perfumes, some Scottish crystal wear with thistle and piper design, bath and body products, the new Evanesense album and of course chocolates! So I have been wallowing in my own glory reflected in the eyes of those who know me best. Its always nice to feel like a Princess :) If my birthday was a colour, it would be soft rose pink with sparkling diamond dewdrops.
I also have birthday traditions which I uphold every year; the main one being that my birthday is always a Disney day! I watch Disney's Sleeping Beauty (which is my favorite fairytale) every birthday just after I open my cards and gifts. I also got Tangled as a gift this year so I will be watching that tonight. I tend to watch or listen to one of my favorite pop princesses; this year it is Britney and Kylie - are they really going to sing a duet together? That would be so cool! And pink iced cakes are another must, with something festive and bubbly to drink, followed by a read through of one of my fairytale anthologies before I go to sleep at night. Mostly though I take time to consider all the wonderful things in my life; I am grateful for all that I have, all that I do and all the fabulous things that wait for me in the course of the year to come.
I know that a lot of you have followed my work for many years now and I am grateful for your loyalty and support. As I am a writer and a witch I believe in the transformative power of words so here is one more birthday wish, just for you guys; May all your dreams come true too!
