Just over a week ago I turned 51 and due to the current world conditions, we did not go anywhere. We are in Tier 2, so could happily go to tier 2, 3 & 4 places, but this epidemic really has put us off from going places, add to that it was pissing down, meant that there was no point trying to go anywhere unless we wanted to either stay in the car, which wasn’t much of an option or seek out a place that was dry, which really meant that the day would be option one as it was raining close to all parts of the country, except the mountains in Scotland where it was snowing.
As always, M spoiled me with hobby stuff, books and a Go Cube. If you do not know what that is, it is a Rubix cube for competing, and it has an app for people wanting to learn how to solve the cube as well as brush up on skills, and speed. I did have it on my wish list waiting for the price to drop, but it really didn’t move, so I never purchased it.
I thought I would share my birthday cake with you all.
So this month I celebrated my 50th BIrthday. It is quite something when you start thinking about 50 years of my life has passed already. The thing is, I don’t even feel like that much time has passed. When I think about the time, it seems quite literally a lifetime, but I remember being 21 at the Scotch Piper pub like it was yesterday. Time is a funny thing.
M treated me to 50 presents to open which was quite a feat! I would not know what to buy me, never mind 50 of them. Lots of mad and silly presents as well as lots of Alien tee shirts, and mother Alien that screams like it does in the film, and lots of books. You can never go wrong with books in my mind. It is now 11 days after my birthday and I still have not finished the cake. The 0 still has to be consumed, and I am determined to finish it.
All in all, I had a lovely day with Mark and the dogs.
Today Lilu would have been 17 years old. We always took her to McDonalds for a cheeseburger (no onions of course) to celebrate, that and a lot of treats and toys. As my readers know, we lost Lilu just over a month ago. However, we decided to carry on with tradition and went to McDonalds, bought 2 cheeseburgers with no onions, one for Harper and the other as a symbol for Lilu. Even though she was not there in physical form, we hope that she was with us in spirit and enjoying her birthday.
