Birthdays are a time for indulgence.
My partner and best friend knows I feel this way, and he indulges me.
Today I spent the whole day - a day I am normally at work - sitting on my patio, reading Little Dorrit and playing with my dogs. Well, watching Cody sleep and playing with Tala.
Now I have just poured myself a glass of wine and am sitting down to watch Episode 1, Season One, of "Xena Warrior Princess". Next to Dallas, this is my favourite junk food for the brain. Really, I like it better than Dallas, because I have a thing for Gabrielle. Plus I love the hodge-podge mythology and I get to see New Zealand.
I don't usually do the "look what I got for my birthday" thing, but I am so excited about owning the entire Xena series that I had to post about it!
There was also Rocky & Bullwinkle, a book by a war resister, and big stack of music. I rarely buy myself anything, then Allan makes up for it all at once.
Now back to Xena!
