My 90 year old Aunt was first on the phone this morning to say Happy Birthday to me. R answered and said, "Oh, but it is tomorrow. " To which she hooted with laughter and said "I remembered it right ; I think you'll find it is today. "
Some time ago I had said I wanted to read "Paris," by Edward Rutherfurd and R remembered that and got it for me. ( a big thick read ) I have enjoyed all his previous books, so expect I will also enjoy this one. I learn such a lot as he does his research well.
We went out to lunch at the nearest venue, our local, that doesn't get much patronage from us. R enjoyed his meal, I was not so keen - I made the wrong choice ( and I found a hair in it! It had lots of bacon in it which tasted like fish????). Thankfully my coffee and truffle was delightful. Can't win them all. Although I did win by a 100 at scrabble - we took it with us and played while we waited for our meals. Since R got Z:Q and X he should have won, but I got rid of all 7 letters with the word briefly and got 86 for that. Not that we are competitive or anything! We try to play scrabble each day while we eat our lunch, so today was no exception.
I have had a surprisingly productive day considering phone calls etc. Even did the GST, and got washing dry. It was a lovely sunny Autumn / Winter day. (as we drove down the road some folk are still having their kiwifruit picked! )
(Thanks J and V for your lovely card. Got one from Somerset and one from your Mum.)
I'm off to enjoy the drink in my hand and be lazy for the rest of the day.
