It’ll be quiet here today as today marks the occasion when my beloved wife moves into her ‘mid-thirties’. Ohh I’m gonna pay for that one… Happy Birthday darling. I love you more than I have words to say, and considering the amount of words I throw about on a daily basis I guess that’s a…

We had few plans for this weekend, which is fairly rare. However Sunday was my late mother-in-law’s birthday so we had already decided to go to Cashel where we have a tree planted in her memory. But before that we had a free Saturday and, after pottering about in the morning, we headed to Kelvingrove…

Ouchy My back isn’t mega-sore if I keep it moving. That makes sitting down at a computer to do work a little annoying… hence the reason I’m still awake at 1am doing some work. Thankfully it’s improving every day. Happy Birthday! Visited my Gran tonight on the occasion of her 87th birthday. She’s finally out…

What a wonderful weekend. Friday night saw us out to dinner with my family, dining in the hotel in which Louise and I were married. We even managed to sneak in a wee birthday cake for my Dad, such are the benefits of knowing the owners, although that can backfire too… the pudding my Mum…

My darling wife has aged another year. I’m not allowed to tell you what age she is, but anyone born in 1973 should be able to figure it out (they were a particularly clever bunch that year). Tonight I’m whisking her off for dinner, and then home… to.. well get her yearly birthday treat. Yes,…

A few beers tonight, for medicinal reasons of course, and I should be fast asleep. Unfortunately my brain is still churning away at several thousand miles per hour so I’m tidying out my email, deleting old files, boring stuff that doesn’t require much concentration. I’ll pause and mention that it’s my other sisters (in-law) birthday…

Is there a term for today’s date (05/05/05)? Or is it just the wordsmiths who spent hours and hours creating words about words? Two things to mention today: 1. GO VOTE! 2. Happy Birthday to my favourite sister – I have to fight the urge to type “little” as she’s 24 now so I think…

Survived Saturday. Was a great day, good company, good beer and the Grand National even offered some excitement. Jinty McGintys is a great pub and we made a few new friends – but seeing as we were taking up about a third of the pub some people didn’t have much choice! Anyway, Happy Birthday to…

I can’t remember which one it is, but there is a sketch that Lee Evans does when he “learns” comedy from a tape. It starts off with him reciting the opening line to a joke: “My mother-in-law…” It’s quite a funny sketch, but more because of Mr. Evans than the content of the joke. You…

Officially it’s tomorrow, but Happy Birthday to my Gran. 85 years young and delighted with the ‘vibrator’ she got as a present (it’s a foot massager, really..). I’m slightly hungover so it must’ve been a good night last night, and no, I don’t want to talk about the rugby. This may, or may not, be…

Happy Birthday to Eddie. And no we hadn’t forgotten and no it didn’t take a reminder from Outlook (and my phone) to alert me to the fact, sending me scurring to the nearest shop to get your card. Honest. What?
