And they say there's not a God...

I promise that I will shut up about my birthday after this, most unseemly at my age. This is the last bit of birthday porn I will be spouting, honest.

I am so lucky in my friends and family, all tried really hard to send good wishes, find funny cards and select thoughtful gifts.

My dear friend Sixpence and her beloved Bidey, (they have real names but I'm not allowed to tell them) have surpassed themselves this time. On July 28th I received a text to tell me that they were having a good holiday and on a breif sojourn to the pub they'd bought me the best present I'd ever had. I was slightly worried but they weren't lying.

Scroll down a bit, let's build up some excitement here (I'm middle aged now, I have to take it where I can find it!)

perfect man - always upright and as he says : 'stiff as a board' and no wet towels on the floor. When you've had enough just make him face the wall!!! Fab prezzie!

Is that the love of your life that I'm always reading about? Can't read the words, but can imagine: "Dearest Gwen-I love you with all my heart. Will you be mine?"
