27

I made it! My 28th year looks fresh and tidy, and the Maturity Fairy visited in the night to tell me all the stuff I can now know. Did not see the badger thing coming. Other than that I’m having a calm, less fraught birthday than I have for a couple of years. Is quite pleasant. I went for a walk in the sunshine, sat in the park with a magazine and ate too much fish-shaped chocolate. I’ve also treated myself to Spotify Premium “for a month” – this is totally not a bad financial plan, as I fully expect that being able to play pretty much any song/album I want, wherever I am and whenever I feel like it, will quickly lose its appeal, so I’ll certainly be cancelling it in 30 days’ time. Definitely.
