R’s birthday is 29th December. As you can imagine, this is not the best date to have your birthday. The weather is always awful, everyone is away, and the idea of having yet another set of rich food and drink between Christmas and New Year is not appealing. Last year I wanted to take him away on holiday for a few days – but that week is prohibitively expensive because obviously everyone else has the same idea.
So I got to thinking that if the Queen can have an official birthday – why not R too. So this Sunday is R’s official birthday and he will be having some surprises. Of course even though it is June the weather is almost bound to be awful as it is a weekend and I am planning something special.
