Its all about me

There is bad pain and then there is sweet pain, and sweet pain is what I experienced this morning when I went for my massage. This was my birthday treat to myself and I was well overdue for the poking, prodding and kneading that my amazing massage therapist inflicts upon me. But it is so so worth it.

Prior to this I met strewth for an early morning coffee and an orange almond cake treat - what the heck, it is my birthday after all.

Then after the massage it was a quick drive home, change and then drive into Civic for a lovely lunch at As Nature Intended cafe with strewth and Mr B, who also surprised me with some lovely presents - gosh I love birthdays. I particularly loved my card which was titled "Bring coffee and no one gets hurt!" :-) (the KokoBlack choccies were very much appreciated as well!). And I'm in the process of making Greek yoghurt thanks to the new yoghurt maker I've received. We sat outside in the sunshine - only Mr B had to go back to work.

Tonight Mr CJ and I will be going out to dinner to a local restaurant, Rocksalt which has deservedly won many awards - it always has great service and amazing food, and best of all they highlight the gluten-free options on their menu.

Tomorrow it is back to work and deadlines but for today at least, its been all about me! Love it!

Sounds like you had a wonderful day yesterday CJ - and so you should!

Don't worry about Saturdays run. Wether GI or not, we all have our good and bad days and its the bad days that make the good days sooo good...

Take Care and good luck with 6ft!
