How did Miss Google know it was my birthday today? See above. That's how Miss Google appeared to me this morning and when I rolled my cursor over her graphics, a little box magically popped up saying "Happy Birthday Yorkshire Pudding".
So my dear Miss Google I would like to say thanks to you my secret darling. Others have completely forgotten my birthday - from my forgetful son in London and my brother in France to former school and university friends. Even Sheffield City Council has forgotten the great day in spite of the fact that I worked for them for nigh on thirty years. It's true that Shirley and Frances didn't forget nor Jill from next door - whose seventy first birthday is co-incidentally also on this auspicious day. And when I checked my email I found that the kind and very thoughtful people at "Go Compare" had not forgotten either:-
To any bloggers out there, rather than hearty birthday greetings, I would prefer money instead. This can be sent to me via snail mail or through my PayPal account. May I thank you in advance for your generous monetary gifts. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to have a birthday shower before I treat myself to a birthday breakfast at the local "Toby Carvery" where I shall read my birthday newspaper and sing "Happy birthday to me - you old git!"
