Mastodon My birthday —

My birthday

My birthday was last Saturday and, thanks to my dear family and friends, I had a very pleasant day. Let’s see if I can remember how my day went… Everyone sent birthday email. Elli made recordings of two German picture books (which were part of the HUGE pile of special books and toys that she mailed to me last month). Dan gave me a beautiful sterling silver and diamond bracelet which I love, and a book about brain science that I was wishing for — “Incognito”, by David Eagleman. It’s fascinating!

Oh, another gift from Dan was that he bought three copies of “Worms: Reloaded” — one for each of us so that we can all play Worms together, even when Henry isn’t at home! I’ve been playing “Worms: Armageddon” on my iPad a lot recently but it’s WAY better on a real computer with proper network multiplayer. SUPER-FUN!

Dan and I lazed around all day and played a LOT of Worms, and then Chloe and Bob came over in the evening (with donuts!) and we watched Catch-22, which I think I saw years ago but I didn’t really remember. Excellent movie.

Henry wasn’t home on my actual birthday but he took me out for a birthday treat on Tuesday. He drove me to Adams Avenue Books, a wonderful two-story used book store. I browsed for ages and finally chose a pile of books and Henry bought them for me :) It was a lovely and special outing!

Here’s a not-very-good photo of my bracelet. It’s actually much more delicate than it appears:


Am I forgetting anything? I dunno! Anyway, thanks everyone!

    You don’t know me but I just heard your recording of ‘sense and sensibility’. On discovering that your birthday has just been, I feel obliged to wish you joy and thank you for your recording.

    Thank you for the great instructions for your Leftover Lace Fern Scarf. I have been unable to answer questions about turning the corners of the Print Of the Waves Shawl, but your instructions seem to address that. Happy birthday!
