Today is Bruce’s birthday and it is nearly over. Philip and I baked him a double-layer vanilla cake with a vanilla custard filling covered in chocolate frosting. We had some shawarma for dinner and it turned out really well. We celebrated as a family last night and joined some friends for dinner tonight. We talked about Downton Abbey, Sherlock and the upcoming The LEGO movie (which we will definitely be going to see). There is a plaque in our kitchen that belonged to my maternal grandmother. It says, “Sit long. Talk much.” We did that tonight and it was lovely.
Here’s my hope for you: set aside the busy for a while and take the time to be with the ones that matter to you, too.
I wish you all the best and I hope you have a good night.
