Today I celebrated my 35th birthday! I had a very low-key celebration, which is just the way I like it. I’m not really a party person, so the pandemic really didn’t have an impact on how I chose to celebrate.
I did decide to take the day off, however, and actually ended up spending most of the day camped out in front of the television, watching science fiction movies and special features. It was lovely!
My parents also invited me over to have dinner and dessert this evening, which was amazing! It was so nice to be able to spend time with them in person instead of just on the phone. They also surprised me with a couple of Amazon gift cards, which I am very much looking forward to spending on some new books.
But I have to say, the best present was getting birthday hugs from my mum and dad!
