43



I am 43 today. Bit of an indeterminate age, isn't it? Neither micklin' nor mucklin' I'd say. Still, at least I STILL GOT ME ELF *cough*.

Speaking of elfs, did you know that I am the exact same age as bestselling Harry Potter author Joanne 'J.K' Rowling?

I wonder if she's off out for a curry and a few beers tonight too?

This was the UK number one when I was born. I believe pop stars had begun to smoke 'pot'...

  4. "I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
    Because you're evil
    And you lie
    And if you should die
    I may feel slightly sad
    (But I won't cry)"

    Course I haven't!!!!

    While Simon wanders off thinking he's Clare Grogan, I'll chant along Dave Gedge style on the cover version.

    Have a good 'un.

  11. Bread and butter
    In the gutter
    Happy Birthday to you


    My 'friends' sang it when I was six. I cried. So, you know, THANKS FOR THE REMINDER.

    You are all lovely people and I thank you. Belateds to Stevie Boy and bienvenue Two Palm Trees.

    We did the pub lunch (3 pints) and we walked back along the river until the youngest needed a wee wee (strangely, only one place to stop = 1 further pint). All of which has set me up nicely for tonight.

    Mondo, I'm a not especially macho pescatarian dear boy, so it'll most likely be a King Prawn Masala, and I do like a daal also.

    The mother in law's gifted me a £15HMV voucher - so your suggestions please and I don't want nothing 'trendy' neither xxx

    It was a King Prawn Madras in the end John. Marvellous.

  23. Here's another 43 year old saying "Many Happy Returns" and my Number 1 back in 1965 was "Yeah Yeah" by Georgie Fame. In 43 years time will people be bragging about being born when Basshunter was number one? Mind you, must admit I like to tap my foot to that Dizee Rascal tune.

  24. ....no. Sorry, you've lost me.

    Jim Reeves though, now....
