It's The Old Girl's birthday this weekend.
I picked her up from the airport last night and we went into town for a really nice meal at a restaurant by the marina. She's been in Auckland all week as she has a busy work project that has to be completed or, .....that's what she said. I think that she might have stayed down there to hide from the cousins who've been staying with me this week.
Anyway, when we got home The Old Girl said she had a present for me. I asked her why and she said "Because it's my birthday". She gave me the latest Michael Connolly novel which she knew I'd like. I didn't argue the logic of her giving me a present when it's her birthday but hey, I'm happy.
This morning I presented her with her birthday present that I bought and have been hiding since before Christmas.
It's a free-standing leadlight with a pohutakawa theme that she admired in a local gallery a while back. She loved it so I'm in the 'good books' now.
Later this afternoon it will be a bottle of that excellent Deutz Blanc de Blanc and a dinner of meatloaf, roast potatoes and vegetables.
