I bring this up as a not so subtle excuse to also mention that today was my birthday and to thank everyone who sent me good wishes. I did wonder how you all knew until I remembered Facebook.
To be truthful, it hasn’t been the best of days. We went to the funeral of someone who was once our nextdoor neighbour and a close family friend for many years.
She was aged only 50 and was cut down by motor neurone disease which has to be one of God’s cruellest jokes played on the world. As you can imagine, I’m not in the most cheerful of moods, so I’ll leave it here and hope for a more cheery tomorrow.
