Mr B has been in mild disgrace for spending far too much time on internet spaceships and far too little on everything else.

A short while ago, he appeared in the living room with a smile. 'I am being thoughtful and loving,' he declared.

He pulled his hands out from behind his back. In one, a giant chocolate frog. In the other, Kevin McCloud DVDs. He really does love me!

Happy birthday, Miss Brammers :)

I wish you the most pleasant things possible on this, the anniversary of your birth, including but not limited to a temperature below 30 degrees.

Okay I admit it. I am wishing for the temperature part as my own very un-birthday gift that I can share with everyone. It is the thoughts that counts though.

Thank you, dear! And I would be delighted to share my clement weather with you! (So far, so good, it seems to be cooling down enough to allow sleep later.)
Nennenenne on January 28th, 2011 01:43 pm (UTC)
Did he feel the need to really underline the thoughtful and loving-part to make sure you didn't overlook it? *giggles* It was very nice of him. :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:05 pm (UTC)
Yes! He announces these things to make sure I don't miss them. I assure him that any instance of him not playing computer spaceships at the moment is so notable that it would not escape my attention (this would be mean, but it has been out of control this summer!)
Nennenenne on January 28th, 2011 02:26 pm (UTC)
*giggles more* That is actually kind of cute.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
He is a dear. And we have had a habit of announcement since the early days -- I told him that he was sleeping with me the first time, and he later informed me that he was planning to stay around for decades ;-)
Nennenenne on January 28th, 2011 02:53 pm (UTC)
LOL That at least leaves no room for misunderstandings. Not a bad idea at all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISS BRAMMERSSSSSS! HAPPY BDAY TO YOU! ♥
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you, Huey, darling! It's only just begin, but chocolate and Grand Designs is a good start! And he gave me one of the cats, but since I remember paying for that one the first time, it didn't count (and she scratched me. Damn it, Monster, you do not need your claws when a human is holding you!)
Hueyphoenixacid on January 28th, 2011 02:14 pm (UTC)


Monster apologises and asked me to send you a cake. xD
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
She hopes that it is made of chicken and I will accidentally leave it out of the fridge and unattended ;-)

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you got a nice gift (and husband) to celebrate with! :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:03 pm (UTC)
We did already own the DVDs, but having him sit down and watch something with me is a delight! And thank you, it is starting well :-)
ecosopherecosopher on January 28th, 2011 01:59 pm (UTC)
(Did I miss it? livejournal assures me it is tomorrow!)

Anyway, have/hope it was a wonderful day!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:00 pm (UTC)
It's tomorrow/today, the 29th -- which has started here. We start celebrating at midnight in this house, and birthdays are official for as long as it is that day somewhere in the world. The Festival of Birthday may be strung out for a week, a month for big ones ;-)

ecosopherecosopher on January 28th, 2011 02:31 pm (UTC)
What an excellent idea. I think I may have to implement that in our household, effective immediately. Of course, it's complete coincidence that mine is the next birthday... and at '35', I think that definitely deserves a week's worth of celebrating!

Enjoy Kevin McCloud!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Let birthday week be my gift to you :-)

Mild disgrace ...

You turn a phrase better than anyone I know <3
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 03:17 pm (UTC)
Well, I have to save some descriptive room in case he ever runs off with Kylie Minogue ;-)

I just melted! SO SWEET. I love especially when men have to announce that they've been thoughtful. Every now and then, my husband can be heard muttering "I am a good man, you know" if I haven't been sufficiently gushy about how amazing he is. Silly men and their tiny egos. :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 03:26 pm (UTC)
HEE! Your husband is EXCELLENT! And Mr B is also very worth keeping, even if he does have attacks of OCD about taking over the galaxy. I think that their announcements are because they are harking back to the days of knightly chivalry when they would have had a herald to precede them -- 'My Lords and Ladies, I give you Sir Purl and his Tale of Great Deeds for His Lady!'

OMG IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!! SOSOOOOOO much love coming from London today. xoxoxooxooxoxo!!!!

Thank you, darling! SO much love going back to you!

Happy birthday! it is also nice to have the husband remembering your birthday without having to remind them.....it is the little things darn it!

PS/ a couple of nights ago my husband hide a big bag of peanut M&M under my pillow as a gift. After I found them he said that it had been very nice of him to do so because he was a nice husband :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 03:28 pm (UTC)
Nothing says love like confectionery!

And I do always have to remind him of the date, but at least he knows roughly when it is and has enough nous to say 'Er, 27, 28, 29 or 30?'
AutumnHearti_autumnheart on January 28th, 2011 02:44 pm (UTC)
Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day and an ongoing celebration.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 28th, 2011 03:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks, dear! Though I feel it will be best served by going to bed quite soon ... enough Grand Designs for one day!

Oh, Happy Happy Birthday!!!

And which internet spaceships does he play?

I only ask because my hubby (and sometimes I) spends way too much time on Star Trek Online/Eve Online, which are both internet space ships. :)

*googles*

I have never seen anything with Kevin McCloud, but he looks as if I would like him, so enjoy!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 31st, 2011 11:53 am (UTC)
You would enjoy Kevin! He is clever, kind and funny, and makes terrible faces at bad architecture. And he is having an affair with Eve Online, to the point that he told me to find out what coprs you belong to in case I need to spy on your activities in future. I thumped him on your behalf.

And thank you!

OMG! Your birthday! And I didn't notice. I am mortified, but want to wish you a very belated happy birthday. I hope the whole weekend is just amazing for you! xxx

Happy Birthday, darling Brammers!

Is pavlova on the menu again this year or something else just as delectable?

Have a fantastic day!

Happy birthday, darling! :D I think I've watched most Grand Designs seasons at least three times, so I can very much relate to your glee. :D
