It's a VERY BIG birthday on Thursday the 12th...
too big to have candles on a cake unless you have the fire brigade standing by.
The last decades birthday was celebrated with a 70's theme fancy dress party
but this one... well it will just be a quiet one.
The people who care about me and who I care about know though that's it's a significant birthday and have sent cards emblazoned with the number, It's getting to be a bit of an exclusive club, after all, there are a lot of people who never had the privilege to reach this age.
I don't think I look mumble years old, certainly don't act that age and probably never will
but then I do have a rather old portrait of myself in the attic...
