I had my birthday this week. I can hardly believe I am now 37 years old! Ha ha I bet you can hardly believe it too. It was a quiet day, unlike last year when I had the fantastic party. I will never forget that party.
My extremely handsome son George took me to lunch at the restaurant where he works. Very nice it was too. I think he wanted me to see where he works and meet some of his new work pals. I don't think the fact he got a big staff discount off the bill had anything at all to do with his choice of venue! Here is a picture of me looking happy. I certainly feel that I carry my 37 years very well!
I started this post on the 8th of August. Today is the 13th. Sorry for the delay. Oh hang on you weren't were you. Waiting I mean.
I just had a look at the photo above. Devilishly handsome some would say. Well when I say some I mean myself. Who else would describe me thus? What's that? You would? How sweet of you. Thanks. That has cheered me up no end. But wait have a look at this photo of me.
It was very painful. But at least I am still alive. Unlike the wasp/bee. That is dead. At least I presume it is dead. Maybe it is back at the nest licking it's wounds? If it is still alive I hope it had a sleepless night. The same as I have just had. My eye is almost completely closed this morning. I am actually writing this with only one working eye. It is 7.30 am. I have a load of firewood being delivered in a couple of hours time. First though I shall walk to the village with Sadie the German Shepherd. But this time you can rest assured I shall be keeping an eye out for speeding insects. Just the one eye. The other, as I said, is closed.
My darling daughter Jodie got married a few days ago. She never told me she was even planning getting married. She has been with her partner Lee for eleven years. Apparently he often asked her to marry him but she resisted. Then one day she said yes. She told me she thought it was a good idea. We shall see. He is a nice bloke. He works hard. They are obviously very close. I am happy for them.
I went to the reception. It was at their house. There was me there and Jodie's mum and our granddaughter Maisie and Lee's brother. That was it. I had a cocktail sausage, a miniature scotch egg and a tiny sausage roll. Oh and a slice of quiche that Jodie made. I thought it was a slice of pizza when she gave it to me, but apparently it looked like pizza because it had been in the fridge! It was very nice.
As weddings go, it was a very inexpensive low key event. My family eh! What are we like? I wish them every happiness.

Bye for now.
