You might know by now that I’m pretty grumpy when it comes to new technology, I hate Facebook and I don’t give a tweet about twitter – hey I don’t even like that new thing that hasn’t been THOUGHT about yet!

So if you were hoping to read something about the I-rrelevant, I-rritating and I-n-essential I-pad you will be pretty un-I-mpressed with this post.

‘Cos… it’s my birthday, and I’m going to party like it’s my birthday. Or, write this THEN go party like it’s my birthday – which it is.

You know what -the older you get ….. the older you get.



Funny thing - the older I-get the more Aquarians I-meet.

It turns out I-m working alongside four - which means we make up half the team.

Yes, of course Aquarians are probably the best folk to have together to do almost anything – probably goes without saying – but when I-was a kid NOONE was an Aquarian.

Even half of the people who live in this house are Aquarian - it would have been three quarters if Minnie had stuck to the schedule and not been so I-ndependent.

Can you have too many Aquarians in one spot?

Well, it helps to have someone with a touch of practicality – we tend to be a bit of a dreamy bunch.

I-npractical I-nfact....................................................................................thanks to anne for inspiration.

Oh hope I'm not too late. Joyeux anniversaire!

popps said...

Never too late Vicki but honest - i wasn't trying to elicit wishes.
Thanks everyone.

Vicki said...

Ha! I'm sure nobody thought you were after wishes, but I think you (and us to) might have to get used to unstoppable spontaneous outpourings on the web. It warms all our hearts to be able to join in a celebration.
