Another year older

Mels birthdayI started my Birthday with a steady turbo: no iPad so I tested out spotify, wow what a whole new listening experience to look forward to!

Since 2013 my birthday has always been a day tinged with sadness. No call from Mum to sing to me (badly!) in her Irish accent. No card in her funny loopy left leaning hand writing.

I did get cards from other family, they all turned up in the post today which is quite a feat for international postage!

Looking forwards, I’m loving my outdoors life. Despite all the tough things this last 18 months has thrown at me, I still think I have done the right thing moving to New Zealand.

Sure, I feel sad that I will miss my twin nieces first birthday next month, I cannot be at my lifelong friend Claire’s wedding later this month, but I am still surrounded by lots of lovely supportive friends, and miles no longer matter in this digital age.

Happiness is paramount and I am still on a mission to surround myself with that.
