Birthday Boy

I woke to Laura standing by my bed clutching a handful of cards and gifts and telling me to "wake up - it's your birthday!"

Naturally, I did as I was told and opened all my cards and gifts. Got some socks, which is always good because Gail keeps nicking mine, and there was a new shirt for work from my MIL. Gail already got me my gift - these wonderful new glasses I now wear with accompanying prescription shades. Laura got me a couple of ska/reggae CD's which are superb. There were a couple of books as well; the latest Harry Potter (end of the queue wee man) and a new book by ex-mafia soldier Henry Hill. He's come out of hiding after divorcing his wife three years ago and this book is the sequel to Wiseguys, the book that the film Goodfellas was based on.

In the evening we went to Giuliano's Italian restaurant on The Shore in Leith and had a nice meal. It was very busy and one of Laura's school pals were in for a family 80th birthday celebration. At the end of the meal the waiter brought out the birthday girl's cake to a rendition of Congratulations over the speakers and everyone started clapping. The cake was a giant replica of a bottle of Smirnoff Vodka. Not bad for an 80- year old!

I was glad Gail and Laura didn't do the same for me - although the vodka might have been nice!

I did one of these personal predicter things. I got it off of Magick Musings. I think it is particularly accurate - especially the writing observations.
