Shhhhhhh.............don't tell Blogger, but although it says 12.15 a.m. on my computer clock, therefore officially making me one year older, Blogger is on American time, and so, according to my profile, I am still the same age as I was when I got up this morning.
Hubby and I went out this evening too, and when I got back I found that ED and Sensible had made me a cake. Now given that my age hasn't gone up yet, maybe I could pretend that it was from last year? Oh, o.k. maybe not........ I was VERY chuffed to get a birthday cake though!! Thank you ED and Sensible!
I actually have always loved the six days between 6th and 12th May. Hubby for those 6 days only is a year older than me rather than the same age. My brothers are 13 and 9 years older than me. And my friend Debbie is a year older than me. Well actually my eldest brother is thirteen years older than me for two months really. And my friend Debbie is a year older than me for five months. But in those six days, all four are respectively that bit older. And in time honoured tradition, Debbie will undoubtedly send me a birthday card tomorrow saying how glad she is that I have caught her up at last.....
The other thing is, that I never look forward to odd birthdays. That's odd in number you understand.
It's a bit of OCD really.
I like even numbers.
Funny really, because ED has a similar affliction, but unlike me, she only likes multiples of five. She always ensures that the volume button on the television is at 25 or 30. The best place for sound is is actually 27 .....but if she knows, she changes it. Given that I like even numbers, we compromise at 30.
But now it's here. The 12th May 2007. That makes me (shhhhhh..........) 45...........
Not only is that an ODD number, but it's half way to 90.
If I get as far as 90 that is.
It's in my mid forties.
I can't even pretend that I am in my early forties now..........
At least I have a nice chocolate orange cake to eat.
