Happy Birthday to the Sensible One, 13 today! ................And why Men are from Mars and Women are from from Venus
We are late to bed, having had a very busy evening getting ready for Sensible's birthday and sorting costumes for my Stage School show on Saturday. As is often the case when you go to bed late our minds are working overtime and hubby and I are both lying awake.
My clock alarm says the wrong time due to numerous power cuts over the winter and my having guessed the correct time at numerous times over the winter. What's the proper time I ask Hubby? 1.36 a.m. he says.
"In seven minutes time it will be exactly thirteen years since I gave birth to Sensible."
"Mmmmm" says Hubby. "In six miles the clock on my car will read 00000 for the third time in its life!"
