    Default Happy Belated Birthday, Mother Bear

    Our own dear, faithful, helpful and patient MB has been ignored by her ingrateful forum brood. Just over a month has passed since her 30th birthday, and nary a virtual flower, card or piece of cake has been posted .

    I prostrate myself, and utter into my cat-fur laden rug a humble Happy Belated, Dearest MB

    Thanks for the thought, Selchie. Much appreciated.

    I wish! It was a special kind of birthday, too. It's not every day one becomes a pensioner . In the absence of cards, I'm afraid I do tend to look to the Net for reassurance that someone, somewhere is aware that I have a special day.

    Yes, I know all about cat-fur laden rugs and cushions and laps and beds and ..... They do love to share it around.

    It used to be 65 but then they dropped it to 60 for woman born between certain years. I got lucky. Now they are talking about putting the age limit back up again over the next few years. Won't they leave anything alone?

    Hippity Happity Birthday MB! Belated though it may be, it is still full of jelly and ice cream and bouncy castle wishes. Oh, to see you eating jelly and ice cream whilst on a bouncy castle. Priceless!!!!

    I would, of course, join you!

    Hope you had a marvellously, pampered day and were worshipped like the Goddess that you are. If not, find something quite heavy and beat George around the head with it whilst he sleeps
