Today is nominally my 5th birthday. It's nominal because no-one actually knows the precise date. The vets estimated my age when I was handed in. So for all intents and purposes, today is the day.
FIVE! How about that? I have celebrated with an idyllic day in the garden. E hasn't been around much -- it would have been nice for her to spend some time with me, I must say. But she's going out again this evening, and will most likely lock me in, so I look forward to a long boring evening all alone.
Happy birthday to me.
