I had asked for the time off this weekend. So I could celebrate my birthday. But having the job I have, I didn't really know too well in advance whether I was off or not. And then I still had to invite everyone. My parents, my brother and his family, a few selected friends, my uncle.

The first to arrive was my uncle. Shortly after that my parents. My brother and his family wouldn't come (prior engagements), nor did one of my friends (also prior engagements). So, I still waited for one friend and her family. And waited. And waited. Until I decided I would phone. They weren't coming either...

I did understand them not coming. They both work at weird hours, they have a young family, they have had trouble sleeping lately due to the weather and they had a party only the night before.

The thing I don't understand is how on earth I am going to be able to eat all the birthday cake I've got left...


  1. Is that the actual cake? What a fine piece of work!

  2. Well I would cut it into sections and freeze them to enjoy later.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
