A big thanks to everyone for all the kind words. I continue to blame the weather, which continues sunny.

I have a theory though: Being brought up in an arid country, on a farm where the clouds were (and still are) the only source of water, a rainy day was a thing to rejoice in. Which probably explains why I’ve been so happy the last couple of months - it’s deeply-ground conditioning :-D

And the halo?

This is what is currently gracing my corner cupboard:


And I haven’t peeked! Okay, I’ve had a bit of a poke, but I haven’t been to check out my Amazon wishlist to see what’s disappeared from it, and I even refrained from reading the customs label on the parcel from home. Mum, you may notice that the chocolate is not in the ‘not to be opened yet’ pile but it wasn’t wrapped so therefore it can’t be a birthday present which means I must be able to eat it all now (heheh).

I am under strict instructions from all around me, very much against my will I might add, and I will continue to be good.

What about you? Are you …

a) I can’t stand waiting but I will because it’s the right thing to do

b) Open ‘em when they come - it spreads the fun more evenly (this is my philosophy, thwarted by Neil)

c) Presents? What are they? I can’t remember when I last had a birthday

and for Nathalie:

d) Are you kidding? I love the wait - the excitement builds and builds until…Pop! Everything’s open at once.

And speaking of birthday presents, since all good people have their birthdays in August I am hard kind of leisurely at work on several and there will be as much outgoing as incoming. You know who you are ;-)
