If I’d thought ahead, I could have thrown myself a Kokeshi-themed birthday party this year: a garden full of paper lanterns; platters of sushi; these cookies, and these fondant figurines on a cake – wouldn’t it have been great?!
I should at least have made a cake, though. Maybe then my birthday wouldn’t have been the non-event that it was!
It was a “special” day, but not for the right reasons! I was very grumpy. Not very Zen!
Today’s been better. I’ve realised that spending the day with my children (despite the challenges and injuries) was a great privilege. So, there – my Zen is back. And besides – after 30 you only need to celebrate the decades, right?!
