Another day, another year older

My boys didn't forget my birthday this year ( they must have really learnt their lesson last year).  J got me a box of chocolates, and better yet, I got a kiss and a hug from him (very rare indeed).  BM got me a six pack of Little Creatures Pale Ale, very much appreciated, and I bought myself the latest Harry Dresden novel (according to Amazon it has shipped!) , my bestest RL friend (who shares my Sci-fi/Fantasy/Gothic Horror/Noir fetish) gave me a bottle of Rose and a lovely pair of Spanish silver earrings bought on her latest trip overseas, and I had cash from Ma and Ma-in-law but J's fees for his course will gobble that up - doesn't matter, it's more important for him to get a start in his career than for me to buy selfish stuff anyway, comes with the one-income family gig - sometimes someone has to compromise (ETA - WOW, is that a major run-on sentence, or what?).

Thank you for your birthday wishes, much appreciated.
