It’s Tony’s birthday today –
so please join me in wishing him a Very Happy Birthday.
♥ PENBLWYDD HAPUS, CARIAD! ♥
It was a nice, quiet day, in the end; although Tony’s lie-in had to be cut short with a rude awakening when someone turned up (as they do on occasion) looking for scrap metal or to do painting etc….no thanks chaps, we trust Kev & John do always an excellent job for us. So he did some chores & cut some brambles along the side wall of the lambing shed (thankfully for once he DID put the loppers back – but did not clean them first, balancing them on the blade, not the handle ends – why oh WHY do men do jobs, yet never clear up after themselves? Boys, if you don’t look after your tools they don’t look after you….& they don’t last. Tony. Get the hint.). Hrrumph.
Then it was time to open his cards & pressies, & cut his caterpillar birthday cake, accompanied by a bottle of bucks fizz. As we’re out & about tomorrow in Cardiff Bay we decided to have supper at home: so whilst he put an external telephone bell on the house (with the theory that I can hear the ‘phone ringing, even when I’m right down in the lower yard; then I can hot-foot it back to the house, just in time to miss the call….) I cooked him a hearty fish pie which was washed down with a delicious glass of WolfBlass Cabernet Sauvignon – one of his favourites, & a super birthday gift from our neighbours on the hill – & of course, more birthday cake! I even sang him ‘Happy Birthday to You’ in Welsh, as he blew out his candle……despite being a caterpilar cake I opted for only one, as I didn’t want to burn the place down – hee hee! ;0)
