Day 27: Happy birthday to me!

Day 27: Happy birthday to me!

It’s ma birthday today!

So it got me thinking: what’s the most memorable birthday gift you ever received?

Or the one that meant the most to you?

Last year, Joe filled the house with daffodils on my birthday because those are my favourite flowers, and spending a few moments looking at them helps to alleviate my anxiety.

He also bought me a cherry tree, which we planted together in the garden.

There have been other fabulous gifts and adventures, too, but right now as I listen to the birds and enjoy early spring, they spring (HAH) to mind.

Your turn: what does “birthday” prompt you to write about?

Set a timer for 5 minutes and go.

Happy writing!
