Late, to the surprise of none …  
Let's just pretend it's before midnight …

A very very Happy Birthday to the marvellous astardanced77. Your talent, your kindness and your engagement that lifts everyone around you shine as brightly as any good stellar body. While you may have noticed my consistent failure to visit you (I had such plans for Christmas, then Mr B bloody well worked the days we could have come, and then there were teeth, and … basically I'm crap) I DID get a load of orange chocs to the lovely Mr S, so fingers crossed you have had them in time for your birthday. Naturally, I forgot the card … I will get down there soon and deliver it! May everyone else have been every bit as wonderful in their appreciations of you as I am tardy and feeble!

And a very Happy Birthday, too, to the indefatigable 17catherines! I know of no-one who can get as much done with so good a will and bright a mind as you. I wish my Katharine Hepburn impersonation was better so that I could shout 'More power to you!' in the right tone. I hope the present fairies basically exhausted themselves couriering grateful giftage from your populace.

Lastly, though anything but leastly, Happy Birthday inamac! At least I've got in under the wire for your actual day. May all your furry creatures be delightfully well behaved, your loved ones be plying you with treats, and your enormous brainful of knowledge and talent continue to bring light to a bonkers world for many decades to come.

Thank you for your good wishes! Unfortunately the furry ones have not taken the hint and I have spent part of my birthday *washing* the dog :(

Treat plying will take place though!

Thank you! S did deliver your lovely present faithfully - no one else in the house likes choc orange, so their fabulous deliciousness is all mine (mine, I tell you, mine!). I have been enormously slack in thanking you. I mentally wrote a thank you email (which I realise is not the same as the real thing).

We'd love to see you down here anytime you wanted to visit. Bring your woolies down though; tomorrow is forecast to be 13 whole degrees!

Thank you! I only wish I were as indefatigable as you think!
