12 hours sleep later I was roused by Tom phoning me to look for his school tie that he then messaged me 3 minutes later to say he had.... Otherwise who know how long I would have slept. Still running a temperature.
The birthday gal arrived and we had an enjoyable morning of peace before heading off to lunch (with Nic-O-La) at Bar Napoli; the nto the AGB Wetherspoons on George St for a pint (although tea won out for me)
Home to meet the teenager from school and I made her a birthday cake (raspberry / blueberry / lime drizzle cake [version] ) before heading off into the sunset as she was having Chinese with her children and some sort of family normality (such as it is)
I set about sleeping and reducing my temperature.
Extra is a slightly better version of one I blipped a few days ago on - Billboard? Extra extra is context for Stevii
