Madonna lied. The beginning of her song Hung Up starts with the lyrics “Time goes by so slowly…” It doesn’t.
November through to April is birthday season in our family. I think there are about fourteen family birthdays in that short period, along with three or four wedding anniversaries too.
Today is Jay’s birthday. He is forty-three. Age has never bothered him and still doesn’t. But with all these birthday’s and anniversaries bombarding me and each number is getting higher and higher I do find myself looking back and wondering where all the time has gone.
Anyway, the girls greeted Jay with cards, a new shirt and a lunch box so he doesn’t have to take his sandwiches to work in a carrier bag anymore. We have a large chocolate birthday cake for tonight and I am going to cook his favourite supper, lasagna.
Happy birthday Jay. xxx
