I decided that I would throw a virtual birthday party for my good mate Kate (aka Givinya). So please drop a message in the comments to wish her a happy birthday, or even slip over to Killing a Fly to visit her.
We have known each other for years now, in fact since 1994 when she came to share a college with me and we realised that we were similarly endowed with nuttyness.
I could share heaps of great stories about her, but I won't because she knows just as many (if not more) about me, and I have to maintain a position of respect in my community (*laugh uproariously now*).
But I did want to wish her a happy birthday, because I've noticed that mums don't always get the recognition of special days that they deserve. So I hope that she gets to:
1. sleep in
2. go for a long swim with no kids
3. doesn't need to cook unless she wants to
4. and that everyone in her family spoils her rotten for one day.
Happy Birthday, Kate.
The chance that I would ever forget such an important date?
