Birthday Boy


It's The Prof's birthday today.....he's forty- something!
Now usually he takes the day off work but today with numerous " Prof things " to do, he has whisked himself off to the University.
I shall bounce around the kitchen later like a 1950's housewife and prepare a nice birthday feast for supper. I may very well brush my hair and wash my face for the event........well it IS his birthday!

Going Gently  is not always fair to the Professor. On purpose he remains a somewhat shadowdy figure who tends to shout a lot when there is a chicken on the drainage board wrapped in one of our best tea towels ...to most he is the Roger Moore eye browed straight man to "my" buffoon fall guy, but the truth is naturally somewhat more complicated than this Welsh sit com version!
I give you a flavour of the dish rather than tablespoon's taste of it so to speak!

So I wish my husband, a very happy birthday.
I drive him to distraction most days but he wouldn't be without me.
And I wouldn't be without him.
Hey ho x

  4. A very happy birthday to the professor, a very fortunate man to be able to go gently with you. But, 40-something? Please. As an old vaudeville star once said, "I have hemorrhoids older than you."

  8. Hearty felicitations to the Prof for today, still yet a mere chit of a child, shadows and mystery notwithstanding. May you persist in your eyebrow-cocking for many a further year.

  9. Happy birthday to him. It does rather look in that photo that you are rather pleased at having murdered him.
