Happy Birday to me

It’s my birthday today.

Okay – that is quite enough cheering, singing and laughter. (Laughter??? Why are you laughing? I’m not THAT old.)

I was hoping to go for an early morning birding walk before the forecast hot weather. Then I was going to read a bit, relax watching a DVD or two and some of the cricket Test Match on television and generally have a lazy day.

Alas – I have to work. (I do occasional relief driving for a courier company and they had a minor crisis and needed me.)

So the celebrations of the BIG SIX OH will have to wait a few hours.

You never know – I might get to see some really wonderful birds as I do my rounds delivering parcels.

I’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, here is a photo my wife took of me doing some birding last year. This is to remind me of some great birding moments I’ve had in recent times – when I was not working.

    Happy Birthday from me too Trevor, only sixty, you’re just a young bloke! Wish I was sixty again instead of heading for 73!!

    Hi Trevor,
    Happy Birthday! Though I cannot quite lay claim to have reached that milestone yet, they say 60 is the new 50, 50 the new 40…… and so on – so really, you are only as old as you feel (though sometimes that means i have passed SIX OH!). Anyway, hope you gad a great day, blessed with some good birding on your delivery rounds.

    Thanks Duncan. Sometimes I don’t feel like a young bloke – especially when doing hard physical work.

    Thanks also to John. You are right – sometimes I feel much younger – but not when I’ve just finished a hard day’s physical activity.
