A Sunny Birthday:
This Saturday was a day of sunshine, nature, picnics, and sea swims. Nestled between a month of relentlessly demanding schedules and hasty phone calls, Charlie came back from London so we could have a much needed day with each other in our sunny Cornish home.
Charlie and I have been inseparable from the day we met, where one date spilled into thirty and a month saw us living together. But as our relationship was founded on friendship, perhaps that is where we have kindred spirits in the other; though neither of us could hear from the other for days, we live in the contented knowledge that not a single thing will have changed between us, and rather than pine for the days we don’t, we cherish those we do.
This Saturday we wove our lives back into the beautiful one we share together and had a tour of some favourite Cornish places, from the new and un-discovered, to the old and loved. Neither of us are big ‘birthday people’ (or ‘celebration’ people at that!) but if we’re counting, it was a cracking birthday.
I also gained a new bearded cactus called Jorge, so that seriously set the bar. 🌵
