Update: Thank you all for your lovely wishes. Much at variance with my regular pissy demeanour, I am rather excited and beaming as I type this. My sweet, generous and hugely talented friend Ben has just given me the loveliest, most charming blog birthday gift! Thank you so so so much dear boy. This figures up there with the BEST gifts I've ever recieved in my whole life! [I think I might just adopt you instead of Eminem.]
Today at Shout.
Do join us. We’re celebrating one year since we came together to rant. In sickness and in health, through good times and bad times.
R-B-o-H and L-B-o-H request the pleasure of your company on this happy occasion. We’d like to thank you personally for providing us with some of the most delicious repasts at your blogs. They’ve kept us sated and active with less time to tear each other apart. We might even have grown to love each other, thanks to your encouraging presence [but we shan’t be making any hasty statements about this, yet].
We’d love to regale you with a charming speech, but for once, neither of us has anything to say, which is a good thing, because at least we aren’t disagreeing.
So for each one of you, here’s a hug, a cup of Earl Grey [spiked with whatever you like] and a gift.
Prat – a purple rose
NG – a crystal marble
Winding Faith – a silver paint brush
Lizza – a pinch of magic moon dust
HB – a lime green speedo thangy-thong [check with Barnsley Girl] & a book for D
Barnsley Girl – a pair of wings
Migs – a silver tipped ink pen & a pot of dreamy blue black ink
Pricky – a toy Bentley
Ben – shiny red pants for Hafrank, and a diary
AC – a very public blog
Nan – a ride across the horizon
Prom bwoy – a large black cloak
Julia – an enchanted telescope
First City – gold pins to go around
LJLC – a bag of Columbian coffee
Robert – a Harley Davidson [toy]
Kathryn – magic boots
Prude – a sequin studded frock
Non-sensei – a chocolate Easter egg
Zap – a universal hitch-hiking license
And for two of my most loved silent readers who don’t blog [you know who you are – of course you do, duh! What I’m saying is you know I know you know I know it’s you]
A flying carpet so you can travel anywhere anytime, and follow your dreams and your heart.
A wishing ring, so you can be home, whenever you [or I – as is always the case] wish.
Oh and, darlings, brain pâté to be served fresh, of course, as the guests start trickling in.
