Today is the last day of my twenties. How did this happen? I'm pretty sure I wasn't expecting this. I mean, I was aware that time passes and if you keep having birthdays you'll eventually get to the thirtieth one, but I think I was vaguely expecting some sort of exception to be made in my case.

That said, I am actually feeling pretty good about it. On the last day of my teens I freaked out a bit, but this... feels okay. I liked my twenties; they were difficult, because of getting ill, but they've been lovely - and yet I don't really feel the need/desire/whatever to extend them any further. Bring on the next part. Everybody says your thirties are supposed to be pretty great, anyway, so here's hoping.

Also, my birthday seems to have fallen (hopefully, if this keeps up) right in the middle of one of Manchester's rare spells of actual sunshine. This is good. (I think I've even managed to turn my skin from its usual sour-cream white to a very faint pinkish-brown. Let us hope it remains at that stage and doesn't mutate into lobster-red. Stupid Scottish genes.) Yesterday the housemates & I went to my parents' house in Small-Lancastrian-Village where I grew up for my (tiny) family birthday party with cake and wholesome organic food and things, and it was just beautiful. S-L-V can be a bit grey and dismal for much of the year, but in spring/summer it really comes into its own. You have never seen so many buttercups. ♥

Today I walked into town and watched all the confused English people going "huh? sun? with heat?" and bought myself a sundress and a new lip ring (hey, I'm allowed to buy myself birthday presents, yes?) and it was lovely, and, yes. Today was good. Let us hope tomorrow is too.

Happy birthday (tomorrow)! If you can't buy yourself a lip ring, then who can, that's what I ask.

Just for the record, I consider 35 the perfect age and have done my best to stay there ever since I passed it. With varying degrees of success, depending on whether we're talking the inside or the outside. Thirty is pretty good too, I may add.

If you've gone pinkish brown, btw, you are doing better than I've ever managed. It's fish-belly white or lobster red round here. I suppose at least the piscine theme is consistent.

Well, my mother had me when she was thirty. And I think I'm probably pretty important to her because I'm her only child. :P

So I hope many good things happen for you in the coming year. Good things that you want, of course. ;)

Happy Birthday! Here's hoping your thirties are marvellous. :) Glad you all had a good time up in the Small Lancastrian Village, too. ^^

I was sneaking around to look at your lovely layouts, one of which I have been using (and adore!), and I noticed that you are a Rose of Versailles fan, too! How ironic! And awesome. ♥

Sadly, I don't have my RoV icons here on DW, or I'd use one. So a rose that I drew, instead? =P

And on topic, seriously-- have a wonderful birthday!
