This morning, I was up early to prepare for the interview, along with collecting birthday cards and presents. The boys got me the DVD of the coomplete "Pink Panther" cartoons. Watched so far: 2. Still to watch: 122.
After the interview, it was back here. Viv's mum came round for the afternoon, the boys came home, Viv and I went out to Frankie and Benny's for evening-meal. A mixed platter to start, a bacon and avocado salad for Viv, chicken, orange and spaghetti for me, washed down with too many margharitas. So this entry is shorter than it might otherwise have been. Thank you to those of you who have offered birthday greetings. I appreciate it. This time last year, we were in Anaheim, having just left New Zealand. And 22 years ago, we were just coming home: I had taken Viv out for the first time, to dinner and a show - the Everyman Bistro and "When The Wind Blows". But that wasn't a date. We were just friends. It was a very long time ago.
