26 Mar


Monday was my birthday.  I used to celebrate the anniversaries of my twenty-first, until the anniversaries out numbered the twenty-one, lol.  

When my Sister and I were going through the chuck out and sort episode I came across a brthday card she had sent me a good few many years ago, lol.  The loveable sarcastic quips she had added to the card made us laugh.  See what I have to tolerate from my family, insanity does not run through, it takes a seat and stays for tea! LOL.

We’ve done some daft, affectionate things down the years to celebrate milestones and occasions.  Managed to make her cry once *smug* for which she still has not forgiven me [I filed a box with cards from people who attended their wedding, as a silver anniversary gift].  My Mum always loved her birthday, because it was her day, as she came from a gagle of seven any other occasion was chaos.

    I once wrote a poem for my wife’s birthday.

    Funny how the little personal things get remembered much more than presents.

    Mind you a friend of mine does keep a list of the presents everybody gives each other every Christmas. Now I believe in lists but I can’t get my head around that one!

      The only reason to keep a list of who gifted you what, is to make sure said item is on display when they are invited to visit, lol.
