I seem to have done a lot of grumbling and whining of late. Here is something a bit happier.
Our niece Little Jo turns 10 in a few days. Yes, some of you long time readers will now fall off your orthopedically designed chairs. How can time have passed so quickly. I posted about when she donor conceived and was born and have posted about her many times since.
We were in a card shop this week, to buy her a birthday card. R has already bought her present, a heavily discounted Lego block thingie. It was on her list of many things she wanted. We will keep the receipt in case she is overwhelmed with Lego and wants something else.
I enjoy reading the funny things on birthday cards in shops. But this shop went one step further with drink coasters with some funny slogans. Here are a couple that I think I can remember.
"Only the best hipsters are born of mummies who tells them they are extra special children".
"I looked up from my phone yesterday, and I did not like what I saw".
"By the time a man realises that maybe his father was right, he has a son that telling him that he is wrong."
"Humans are the only animal that allows its young to return to the nest".
