This Forum is a place of sharing for we who have experienced a Stroke,
for us, but also for our partners, carers, family, friends and acquaintances.
I have shared much here and today I am pleased to share another tid-bit of my day to day life.
Today is my birthday.
It is an exceptional day. I shared this birthday with my paternal grandfather and also Her Majesty the Queen. They are both gone now, but I am not alone. Today I celebrate life, love and what they bring.
I was born under the sign of Taurus, seventy six years ago. and I love nothing more than tearing about like a bull in a china shop.
I opened my emails this morning, at 6am, being an early riser. and found something I am so proud and joyful to have received. It is from my ever loving and creative wife, Hilary.
I can say no more, but want to include it here for all to see.
I am pleased and proud to be hers. I think this might be my best birthday ever.
I want to laugh and cry and shout out loud . . .
Keep on keepin on

Raise a glass or a cup of tea in a toast:-

Bobbi, I love the sweet message from your wife.
I hope you have a fantastic day.
Many happy returns!
From another Ram (luckily we don’t butt heads with the Bulls as we would probably come off worse ).

This is ordered to be delivered for later:
Hot and sour soup [vegetable]
Crispy Aromatic Duck
Crispy Pork Spring Rolls (6)
Steamed Roast Pork Buns (3)
Special in Satay with Black bean sauce [+ fried noodles with beansprouts]
I think we are going to be very full.
Meanwhile, I’m anxiously watching out of the window waiting for delivery of a couple of hard drives for Hilary’s computer.
That sounds a bit yummy
@Bobbi Can I come and help you eat it all?
Emm well I suppose 76 candles would burn the house down, so maybe not.
This will have to do…
