Anna is 9 today, and true to her nature, she is organizing her own birthday party.
There are to be balloons tied to the picnic table.
Cheesy Sausages on the BBQ, the last of the sweet corn and some potatoes from the garden.
Presents, of course.
And chocolate cake with candles.
She has such simple needs.
She made a birthday playlist of music she wants: I think it's amusing that it includes the classical Requiem For A Tower, as well as the well known campfire song Something To Sing About, and music from Taylor Swift. It speaks of the place she is in - all grown up in some ways, a child in other ways, a nd somewhere in the middle the rest of the time.
A perfect place. For a perfect 9 year old. Who deserves a perfect birthday party.
