Belated birthday wishes from me. Sounds like you had a lovely day. I mis-read your post and at first thought you meant that Enid Blyton had treated you to a News Chronicle Annual. :lol:

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)

Another birthday, Nigel! Whatever happened to the time when there were a whole 12 months between someone's birthdays?

Happy B-Day, anyway, with a cake and fun-filled celebrations.
