Books, books, books! It must be my birthday!

It was my birthday today and I decided to take a break from daily life for a real treat - I went to a bookshop and whiled away a morning reading picture books.

It was a beautiful Spring day - the cherry blossoms have finally blossomed on our street after the long hard winter.

And when I checked my Facebook page, I had a warm, tingly deluge of birthday greetings from my friends.

A perfect day.
