My birthday

Today is my birthday. Woke up early and until I received a text I didn't remember that today I am even older than before. Not that I consider myself old I might add, I have a very young outlook on life and that's partly down to having two fun loving girls and the years of living with Doug who made me see the world in a different way. Today I am sure he will be watching me, painting on my smile and going out for a meal just like the thousands of times he took me out. Friday nights were our thing, we met on a Friday and went out every week for the last 12 years, nothing would get in our way and woe betide anyone who tried. I'm not one for presents, I adore cards and I have found the card from Doug that he gave to me last birthday and it has pride of place this morning with lots of others from my lovely family and friends. I shall be having a drink for him and myself later and I just want to say he still has the power to 'fog my goggles'.
