Fiona’s Birthday (16th August 2011)

Today was the day! Fiona had loads of cards and presents, plus my parents sent a beautiful animated e-card. It ended with the following poem:

Best wishes for a lovely day
No time for work, just time for play
Have a very Happy Birthday
Love from Tom & Gay

Mum confessed to being the writer. Dad had already dobbed her in, thusly:

I cannot lie, it was not I,
’twas a mouse fair and Gay,
the wordsmith for a special day!

Fiona and I had a delicious, peaceful and sedate lunch at The Vine. For drinks, I had a large glass of wine which lasted the whole meal and dessert. Fiona had to help me finish it, in fact! We had the place pretty much to ourselves.
