Ooh, thank you very much everyone, what a lovely collection of kind messages. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
I had a lovely night out - where we went was obviously a "birthday" restaurant, because three other people had Happy Birthday sung to them by the waiters! David hadn't told them it was my birthday because he thought I would feel embarrassed by the attention, and on balance I think he's right. I think it would be sort of nice but also really embarrassing at the same time, if that makes sense!
I've just spoken to my grandson on the phone, he's so cute. He starts in the nursery at his local school tomorrow, and will be going five mornings a week. I think he'll really enjoy it - can't wait to ring tomorow and find out how it went.
Oh well, best be getting on with all the work I didn't do yesterday!
Thank you again for all your lovely hugs and messages.
