So it’s my birthday on Thursday, the big 37. How can I be that old? I remember when my mum was this age, I was in year twelve and thought my mum was soooo old! As you do as a kid, and I have no doubt my kids think I’m ancient too.
Inevitably around this time every year the questions start, so what do you want for your birthday? Even though I usually spend a over month, gathering nerdy presents for my spouse before his birthday because I want him to know I care, and know him well enough to source the obscure things he loves. Clearly a last minute dash to the shops says love and I am wasting my time. But I digress….
So potential birthday shoppers to save you time and money here is what I want. I require only your presence without complaint or shouting (shut up you’ll wake your mother!)
I want 24 hours sleep, uninterrupted, with a sleep in. I don’t need food brought into me, shall take to bed with chocolate and probably wine. Waking me up will only result in a do over. On rising I don’t want anyone to ask a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. of me for at least half a day. A trip to the loo unaccompanied would be a nice bonus.
That is all. That would make my year.
