Today is my birthday and what a lovely day I have had. I woke up to tea and birthday cake in bed and lots of lovely presents - all my favourites, chocolates, magazine and books.
Then a trip by motorbike. Now some ladies would hate the thought of a journey by motorbike, especially in the rain and cold, but too me it is heaven. I love being a pillion passenger, sometimes you get a bit stiff and tired and cold, but there is something so special. When we set off it was raining and it got steadily harder. We went through the countryside to Lulworth and had a look at the sea and a very welcome coffee and tea cake, ( we had the cafe nearly to ourselves and didn't have to fight coach loads of old ladies for the teacakes, as we once had to in the Lake District).
Now the sun had come out and it was beautiful, we wondered where to go and decided to have a look at Ringstead Bay. It was lovely, absolutely deserted and the sun shone and it was warm. We sat there for a long time just taking in the peace and quiet, and only saw two people and one dog in our whole time there.
Then home in the sun for a welcome cup of tea and ham sandwiches, a night of relaxing, and a lovely home made pizza and as you can see not a lot of birthday cake left!
