Today is my darling's birthday smiley - bravesmiley - loveblushsmiley - teasmiley - biggrinsmiley - cakesmiley - loveblush

Happysad is the word to describe the day smiley - crysmiley - loveblushsmiley - cuddle However, it has been a good day and a good year. To celebrate, I have:

smiley - gift Knitted another tiny bunny http://www.flickr.com/photos/sashaq99/34168993654/in/dateposted-public/ which I will pet in honour of my darling snuggle bunny A591310 this evening and which I made into a keyring so I can carry it with me every day smiley - love

smiley - gift Made a bead and tied it with a ribbon on to my bag of mementos smiley - loveblush

smiley - gift Done some art - using watercolour pencils I drew a picture of our toothbrushes entitled 'Companionship', and using watercolour paints I have made an abstract picture inspired by my darling's favourite dress, that I am lucky to have and which still has her perfume in it smiley - loveblushsmiley - magicsmiley - brave

smiley - gift Sub-edited a total of 124 Entries, which means I did 24 subbings this year. Not bad, as I also do Scouting, Editing, Curating and Comms too smiley - puff

smiley - gift Written a total of 60 Edited Entries which means I am now on the Pliny Solo list http://h2g2.com/solo as well as Page 1 of Ripley <./>solo</.> smiley - magic

I'm also going to:

smiley - gift Make the pasta recipe A87874861 that my darling would be proud of me for for the birthday dinner smiley - biggrin

smiley - gift Eat a chocolate Easter Bunny http://www.flickr.com/photos/sashaq99/35017208085/in/dateposted-public/ for dessert smiley - choc

Today is my darling's birthday smiley - bravesmiley - loveblushsmiley - teasmiley - loveblushsmiley - rose

Happysad is again the word for the day smiley - crysmiley - loveblushsmiley - cuddle especially as my darling has been gone for longer than I knew her in person smiley - crysmiley - crysmiley - cry It doesn't feel like it, though, because we were together for a kind of forever smiley - cuddle and her ways are always with me... smiley - loveblushsmiley - loveblushsmiley - loveblush

It has again been a good year, though, as I have done things my darling would be proud of me for, in particular working hard to get a better job just as she once did smiley - magic

It has been a good day today as well. To celebrate, I have:

smiley - gift Bought a bouquet of roses smiley - rose 1.25 dozen red roses for my darling smiley - loveblush

smiley - gift Made a video, such as it is http://youtu.be/tETCbeXR2o8 I learned that the note b is exactly between my lower and upper singing registers, which is fascinating, but the shaky sound is apt enough under the circumstances so I share it with you all anyway smiley - brave

smiley - gift Done some art, making another abstract picture inspired by my darling's dress which still has her perfume in it smiley - loveblushsmiley - crysmiley - loveblush

smiley - gift Knitted another tiny bunny, which I will tie on to my bag of mementos with a ribbon smiley - loveblush

smiley - gift Sub-edited an Entry so I have again subbed 24 Entries this year smiley - magic

smiley - gift Submitted a new Entry to Peer Review smiley - magic

smiley - gift Had an Entry picked from Peer Review to make its way into the Edited Guide - unusual for a Thursday, so a very pleasant surprise smiley - magic It will be my 80th Edited Entry smiley - magic

I have eaten some Doughballs, which were one of my darling's favourite starters, and next I will have Duck Pancakes with Cucumber, Spring Onion and Hoisin Sauce prepared just the way my darling taught me so that they become neat rolls that are tasty to eat smiley - biggrin I will then have two mini chocolate eclairs for dessert smiley - choc (I'll finish my Easter Egg on another day...)

Today is my darling's birthday smiley - bravesmiley - loveblushsmiley - teasmiley - loveblushsmiley - rose

Another happysad day, as I enjoyed extra thinking of happy memories smiley - cuddle but I still feel her absence, which made me feel extra sad too... smiley - cry On days like this it reminds me even more than usual that her ways are always with me so we're OK smiley - loveblushsmiley - bravesmiley - loveblush

It has been another good year of doing things that my darling would be proud of me for. Christmas was extra difficult this year, for some unknown reason, but friends and family saw me through the tougher times. My job continues to go well and it is an honour that I have been doing tasks that my darling did in the same cycle seven years ago, so we both make a difference smiley - magic And I have enjoyed getting out and about with her family and friends and my family and friends and doing things like learning about birds and networking with people A87938194

I have had a good day so far today as well.

smiley - gift I bought a tiny silver flower http://www.flickr.com/photos/sashaq99/47974185183 and tied it to my bag of mementos with a ribbon smiley - loveblush

smiley - gift My rose that shares its name with my darling flowered today so I took photos smiley - rosehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/sashaq99/47974266533

smiley - gift I was awarded the 100 Edited Entries Badge smiley - magic

smiley - gift One of my Entries A87932451 is on the Front Page today smiley - magic

smiley - gift One of my Entries A87939472 has been Picked from Peer Review today smiley - magic

smiley - gift I have done some art, again inspired by my darling's dress that still has her perfume in it smiley - loveblush

smiley - gift I have crocheted a jellyfish-shaped comforter http://www.flickr.com/photos/sashaq99/47974230961 for a premature baby http://octopusforapreemie.com/

smiley - gift I have written an Entry about birdspotting for smiley - thepost and it will appear in mid-June smiley - chick

I've lost count of how many Entries I've subbed in total - the official number in h2g2 says 164, but I reckon it's closer to 172.

I had doughballs for lunch and mini cinnamon rolls with an smiley - apple for afternoon snack and now I will make fajitas and wrap the tortillas the way my darling taught me so they become neat rolls that will be tasty to eat smiley - biggrin
