Today, I shall eat cake.

Today is my birthday. It’s possibly the first birthday I have ever spent entirely on my own without family or friends. It’s not so bad.

Yesterday I went shopping for my presents. I got a non-stick frying pan with glass lid, some slippers and some small ready prepared canvases for oil painting. Yes, dear reader, I went to Aldi.

My cake is a carrot cake, I’ve no idea how I will eat it all but it’s hard to make a cake small enough for one.

Later, if the wind drops, I will have a bonfire. As well as feeding the pyromaniac in me this will be symbolically cleansing and afterwards I shall make new year’s resolutions.

Happy Birthday Manda.
