I knitted baby Shannon another sweater and sewed up a box bag as a present. Lexi is doing a final inspection. The last photo is the most true to the actual colour. I included some budgie shots. John took these photos.
My birthday was on Monday. My parents came over for a cup of tea then John and I went to Navan. We went shopping. It was so last minute but a lot of fun. For dinner, I cooked up a steak and had a glass of red wine. I don't need much. I wasn't going to have cake but my Dad got some rhubarb and wanted a crumble so I got more rhubarb and made him a crumble and myself and John a gluten free crumble. It was very tasty. I guess that was my birthday cake. I made the crumbles on Tuesday.
What was funny was on my birthday, we were starving and waiting for a bus. John went to Apache pizza and got a pizza and got all guilty because it was my birthday and I can't eat pizza. I told him that it was nonsense and that it is useless to feel guilty. It is not his fault that I can't eat gluten or dairy. Birthdays don't change that fact, they only change my age. (Anyway, I prefer steak to pizza!)
