It's christmas birthday time today here at Fishfingerbutty Towers.
It's always felt a bit strange having a birthday just before christmas. It's a bit like waiting ages for a bus, then two come along at once. So, I'm up very early this morning to open lovely cards and presents before a birthday breakfast of weetabix and warm milk (it is after all -8 outside). Today I turned down a chance to fly over to Milan in my private jet for a bit of shopping and lunch in preference for a day at work and hours of paperwork. And I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm sharing today with my work colleagues with a full on birthday cake-fest all morning, lunch out at the local pub followed by a quick call in at my parents, then tonight I'm off to Lancaster to catch up with my nursing buddies for a tapas night and catch up. Lancaster beware because the Jolly Girls are reunited tonight and there's always a story when the four of us get together. Post birthday blog to follow... 


  1. happy Birthday Hel, have a great night in Lancaster !

  2. Here's wishing a great birthday and a fantastic time out in Lancaster with the 'girls'.
    I've been to Lancaster, once. I vaguely recall being locked in a dungeon, in complete darkness, for about a minute. What fun! :-)
    Take care and enjoy.
    In kindness, Gary.

  3. Yeah, same happened to me tonight - drunk and disorderly but I got off with a caution whey hey.
