It is my birthday today and after a long sleep in this morning I was awoken to a beautiful breakfast prepared by Mr Maiden. He made my favourite scrambled eggs and had picked a bunch of fragrant roses from the garden. The weather was spectacular today, a cool crisp morning followed by glorious autumn sun. It was a beautiful way to start the day.
