This is something I say to Greig nearly every time the sun shines. The fact that the sun shone all day yesterday prompted me to say this frequently. The fact that aforementioned sunny day was my birthday is nearly recompense for the fact that it's been rainy and cold for 8 months. Nearly.
Yesterday was top though, a day full of lovely little moments which made me sigh with contentment. Opening presents in bed with little ones, thoughtful gifts which seem to have tapped into my own thoughts (or I'm just really good at giving gift buying hints), a trip to the beach, and dinner at a local bistro where I actually managed to eat most of my delicious meal without someone on my lap.
