Old Boy

I turn 34 today.

It's been a nice birthday so far, nice and relaxed. I hung back to have breakfast with the girls. E cooked up a great big brekky with the works which was delisho.

Now I'm setting about doing as little as I possibly can. It's a really beautiful day, and I feel thankful to God for His renewed mercy and love each morning. He is GOOD. Life gets hard, but He never changes.

I don't mind getting older. This year in particular has brought a few extra crows feet and also the greying of 11 of my chest hairs (at last count). I'm okay with that.

Glad you had a good b'day.

As for grey hairs - well, not being a bloke I don't really have chest hairs to noticeably go grey; however I have no idea how many of my head hairs are silver. It's not that I dye my hair or anything, it's that I gave up counting years ago when I realised that I can't see them all without ceiling mounted mirrors that reflect into wall mirrors (like at our last house).
