Oh dear, you must think my life has been one constant party since my Birthday!
Let me assure you, that has not been the case. There was a spot of adult drink consumption, and presents had to be unwrapped, but right after that, my life sprang back to being the turmoil I’m used to. Which is good, really, because I’m a creature of routine and like my life to be the way I’m used to it. With the occasional change … but that’s all in the stars yet, and hence will or will not be discussed in a future post.

It’s just on the right side of ease, it’s soft and cuddly and super warm. The only thing that might not be optimal is that I have a feeling it’s going to pill … but we’ll have to see about that.
