Today is Xfe's birthday. He's away, and of course I forgot.
I'm fairly stressed at work at the moment. When I am I have no time to think about any other stuff. At all. It all closes off and shuts down.
Still, that is no excuse.
I forgot it was coming up, and didn't get the chance to pack him off with a card for him to find when he was away.
It didn't even click when the pips went off at 8am this morning followed by the continuity announcer inform that today is, "Sunday the 3rd October".
I forgot when he phoned me a few moments thereafter and finished the call asking me if I was going to wish him a happy birthday!
Oh la la!
October just creeps up on you. You think it's summer, hope it's still summer, given the crap summers we "enjoy" here in the UK. August is summer. September you hope might still be summer.
Suddenly there is no hope. Up pops October. And Xfe's birthday. And I miss it...
Definitely oh la la!
