Many happy returns to me!

Yes, I'm having another one...and I love it. Aren't birthdays great? Nothing is expected of me, this is my day to do exactly as I please. I don't have to prune, go to work, or cook. The Vinodogs are still insisting on being walked however, but it's just as well as I do need to walk off the passion fruit cupcake above. Yum!
Oh...and Happy Birthday John Toshack.
Vinogirl loves birthdays.

Oh, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I never understand why some people try to ignore them; having a birthday is SO much better than not having one........

Thud said...

Happy birthday little sis!

Thomas said...

I had a friend who used to send his mother a thank you card on his birthday.

Wish I had thought of that.

So, Vinogirl, you just made it as a Pisces--goes well with white wine, you know.

Vinogirl said...

Affer: I agree. I had a great day.

Thud: Thanks. Cliff House next year?

Thomas: Well, considering it was a birth day for his mother that was very thoughtful of him.
I'm actually an Aries...what goes with roast ram?
I did get an interesting present: a book by one Thomas Pellechia :)

Thomas said...

I thought Pisces ended on March 23rd. Never could keep up with those "horror-scopes!"

Which book? If it's the latest, I do hope you follow my advice when you are ready to sink all that money into a winery. Better yet, stake me instead and I'll write another book!

Vinogirl said...

"Wine. The 8,000 year old story..."
It has been on my Amazon wish list for a long time.

Thomas said...

I think the book you have is more fun, but my latest book is likely more practical ;)

Hope you enjoy it. I enjoyed the research.

The villager: said...

Do Bianchi said...

catching up on my blog reading on this Friday morning.

Buon compleanno, Vinogirl!

I hope and trust you had a good one.

Vinogirl said...

Thomas: Got your other book the day after (thanks Thud).

WH: Thank you. What a beautiful typing-voice you have :)

Monkey: Thank you. Tenbellies and I will have to go and check out the other flavours of the cupcakes together. But really, with my and Thud's weakness for anything passion fruit, how could I've chosen any other flavour?

Villager: Thank you. I must admit it is very gratifying for me to share my birthday with one of the best Liverpool FC players ever.

2B: Thank you, it was great.
