I managed to have a couple of good days on my actual birthday and the day after when I’d organised a night out. It was good fun, although I did wonder why I organised it so that people came to my house. That just means more work for me and I shouldn’t be doing more work on my birthday, it’s just not right. I even made my own birthday cake, but that was more for the kids to blow out the candles than anything.
But having said that I did get a good birthday present haul this year, the best for a while yet. A couple of people rocked up sans present and JJ asked me where was my present from them? I didn’t quite know what to say. It’s not like I expect a present from everyone, I sure don’t give all my friends presents on their birthdays as it would just be ridiculous. I just mumbled something and tried to move on but he asked me about three times. I eventually distracted him.
The birthday celebrations caught up with me, or the virus lurking around in my system has caught up with me. I had yesterday off sick and am off sick again today. I’ve got one of those dry coughs that keep you awake at night and I’ve got the husky voice to go with it.
