It was My Birthday, And I'll Smile If I Want To

Ah. Yes, I got another year older. As I got older, I managed to make something happen I thought might happen, but didn't actually expect in reality. Now I kind of feel like I've sent my children off into the wide world and I have to let them get on with it without worrying. But I do worry, and I don't know why.

However, I had a lovely weekend. I drank, spent time with my friends, read my book in the peace and relative quiet of my garden in the rare sunshine this country kindly gave us and got given several presents. As an aside, I also got given a large pile of washing up, a complete lack of funds in my bank and was eaten out of house and home. All I have now is some cider and some sausagemeat (hmm.. that sounds nice, maybe I can make a meal out of that!!!).

So, how do I feel? Mostly confused today. I'm hoping that will clear up later. Also, I feel like I should be some kind of singing sensation after managing to get the award of "Singstar" after what felt like a bad rendition of "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones (for those of you who don't understand, I got given "Singstar Rocks" for my birthday, and apparently my humming cut the mustard!!!). I'm excited because someone may give me a present later on and I'm hoping it'll go nicely with the hi-fi system that Tony kindly gave me (wrapping a remote control in wrapping paper really confused me for a while, sorry!!!).

We say yay. Probably.

Tone says yay too. And Tone offered to get curry from asda... but then Tone enjoyed too much spag bol and had trouble walking up the hill. Such is supper I suppose. Can't work out why the remote confused you tho! I mean, I couldn't wrap the rest it was huge. And I'm not just gonna give you a remote, that would be cruel! And we don't want to break the hilary...

Although it depends on how we break her... It can be quite funny, like when we get broken from spinning round on our chairs too much and then can't do anything except giggle!

We recently got singstar rocks and it is fab. I love doing paint it black although I have to 'Ah' instead of 'hmmmm'. For some reason I find humming difficult. Glad you had a great birthday Hils!
