My Birthday Wish…

I don’t like to blow my own trumpet – but today is my birthday!

29 again!

Only kidding… this year I reach level 49 and I’m truly thankful for every birthday I get to celebrate.

But this birthday is a little different.

Thanks to lockdown there’s no pub, no parties and no big celebration.

Just me, my family and a few beers in the garden.

But before you get your tiny violin out and start playing the world’s saddest sonnet – I’m actually looking forward to it.

I’ve had 48 other birthdays, so I’m ok with this one being a little different.

But that being said, I DID still feel a flicker of sadness when I woke up this morning and realised the pub was still closed.

Then I opened my inbox.

I know, I know – I shouldn’t be checking my emails on my birthday, but I’m so glad I did!

As usual, my inbox was filled with quote requests, sales emails and the odd invoice – but there was one email in there from an old supplier whom I haven’t heard from in a few years.

It was just a short message apologizing for not staying in touch, reminding me of a little story the two of us shared and wishing me the happiest of birthdays.

Not an automated email, but a real hand-typed, heartfelt message just wishing me the best on my birthday.

It really did bring a smile to my face.

And it reminded me of a little thing I ran a few years ago – The Millennium Birthday Club.

Just hit reply to this email and me your details (name, number and birthday) and I’ll be sure to send you a little surprise when your big day comes!

You gotta share the love…

That’s all from me today – I’m off to enjoy some cake!
