I went off to get the key for tonight’s community council meeting and to print some documents in preparation. I got to the Library and realised that it is temporarily relocating and I had no way to print stuff. When I mentioned this at the meeting I got so many offers that if that ever happens again I have to knock on doors and help will be available. What a lovely community I share with my fellow citizens.
Anyway, frustrated I sat for a minute and enjoyed the lovely bedding display while I sent a message to Toxic who was mithering. I returned home and managed t get some more stuff done but I had missed a webinar I wanted to join and unfortunately I have a new more toxic person occupying some of my space – but that is purely temporary and will be stopped by the end of the week. Some people really do not know how to behave – maybe I will expand that later but not now because tomorrow is a special day; however it is not a milestone as Toxic asked at the start of the week – tomorrow is my birthday. Now I am not big on my birthday – it is a day like the others in the year but this year my friends seems set on spoiling me with messages and gifts from all directions winging in mine.
Most surprising of all was Toxic arriving at the door at teatime with a gift and a card; this is a man who has not even acknowledged I have a birthday the past couple of years and the gift is to thank me for “all that I do”. A very sweet and thoughtful gesture. The only problem that these gifts and cards are generating is that Pup thinks they are all for him! I have to tussle to let the postie deliver them; then I have to hide the parcel until Pup clears off. Tomorrow could be interesting when the unwrapping starts.
However before I get to new things tomorrow I just wanted to share with you the beauty of recycling when it is done well. These are in the wee garden and the centre where we have our Community Council meeting – a greenhouse made of 2 litre plastic bottled – bearing a sign asking people not to smoke in the greenhouse because it will kill their babies (the seedlings). And below that a tyre making a planter filled with pretty spring flowers.
Ahhhh so pretty and so serene. I have plans for tomorrow but you will have to wait to hear about that; until then please, as a birthday present to me, make the most of your day wherever you are and whatever you do. Reach out and share your day with one new person – even if it is just a cheery hello … afterall it is a special day so people should be feeling the special oozing out of everyone they meet … oh and no sneaking up on me with a big birthday cake with those candles that won’t blow out okay (and mind balloons don’t thrill me either!) …
