Some of us get carried away celebrating our birthdays, what with the tinsel and the gold trees and the fairy-lights...



What a lovely way to celebrate a birthday. *beams*
There are certain pluses to being a Christmas baby!
There is no better reason to celebrate than a birthday. We've been celebrating DH's today, since we had to work on his real birthday. It's been a lot of fun. I hope you had a great birthday and that you will continue to celebrate for a while.

I hope he's enjoyed himself as much as I have.

Actually I was just thinking about you...

As a cycle fan I thought you would be amused at the write-up of a local cycle race here - they were cycling to win a hamper of festive food - it is the line-up that I thought might make you smile, considering the event!
OMG! Excellent line-up. I sent the link on to Chickie who is equally crazy about bike racing. I know I made her day, just as you made mine with this little story :-) *hugs*

I'm glad I was able to point it out - it is some line up, isn't it? Right down to the British junior champion winning the junior class! I hope he got a good hamper too!
I recognise a card!
I thought you might. Actually I must take a picture of K's card to share it - you'll see why if I manage to do it.
A merry celebration indeed, and is the chocolate Xmas cake also doubling as birthday cake?
It is indeed - I'm quite happy for it to do both jobs, really.
This makes me hum Burl Ives' old tune, "Silver and Gold". :)
My house is quite full of silver and gold right now! I do rather like having the decorations up.
And it's very pretty! :o) I suppose it's much nicer to have a Christmas birthday when one is an adult, what with other priorities and such... I remember to childhood friends with their birthdays on the 26th and 27th December. Both complained each year - it never was possible having their friends over on their birthday proper, because it was a school holiday, and they always got combined gifts from everybody, but usually much smaller ones than it would have been when given separated. I don't know if this was true, though. :o)
They are absolutely right! I regularly got 'one present for Christmas and birthday' which was no bigger than the one my sister got for Christmas. I mentioned this once, when I was a little older, and was told, totally straight-faced, by one of the offenders that 'your sister was only little, though, and wouldn't have understood why your present was bigger...' Yes - well at 8 or 9 I didn't understand why you gave her 2 things in a year and me only 1...

The inability to have a party, and so on, used to annoy me, too. I do think the week between Christmas and New Year is the worst time to have a birthday.
Very fitting icon! *g* It would have been easy enough to get you two presents and give you one at your birthday proper, without any complaints by your sister, wouldn't it? *hugs*
I remember that I envied my sisters having godparents which were not likewise their aunts and uncles, as it was for me. They each got two extra presents each time, which I didn't, because my aunt was also my godmother, and my uncle likewise. Now I am the aunt AND godmother of my youngest niece, and I'm determined to find a different solution. Either she will get two presents as soon as she is old enough to care for it (at the moment "ripping up paper" is still the most important part, but she's only a bit over two, after all), or she will get one on another day until my nephew is old enough to understand the difference.
