Today would have been my Mum's birthday. She would have been 58 today.

I miss her so much.

Bah. Not a lot more to say. Today is also my birthday - I was born on Mum's 30th birthday - so it's an odd and mixed day. [profile] pierot is in Portsmouth and will hopefully be back by around 7 pm. I'm on my own in the house, theoretically working on my thesis. I've given myself one birthday treat so far and drove to Greenwich to go to Goddard's Pie Shop, which makes amazing rubarb crumble. I've had my rubarb crumble for breakfast, and now I'm pottering around feeling quite touched and happy at the number of good birthday wishes I've had over livejournal.

I also had e mails from [profile] riksowden, [profile] melsner and [profile] vilenspotens which was deeply sweet.

It's an odd day for me today. Bittersweet memories, odd feelings...I'm restless and awkward in my mind.

I shall try and not brood, but I fear I will be overly thoughtful. If anyone has anything they can think of to distract me, it would be more than welcome...

Birthday Greetings

Tim...is your pelvis meant to be doing that?

It doesn't look healthy.

Happy Birthday wonderful girl.

If you get too introspective drop me a line - I'm at home tearing my hair out because walking still eludes me so will be thrilled to hear from you.

Happy birthday, hon.

Don't know if this (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4688000.stm) will distract you much, but I think it's pretty cool.

Spanish Birthday song!

Estás son las manañitas que cantabel rey Davíd
A los muchachos bonítos se cantamos aquí.
Despierta, muy bíen, despierta, mirá que yamanecío!
Ya los pajarillos cantan, la luna ya se metío.

Translated to (loosely):
Here are the little ones(feminine) that sing for king david
the pretty little ones(masculine) that sing here,
Wake up, very good, wake up, look it's dawn!
The little birds are already singing, the moon has already set.

I should be singing this to you at about four in the morning to do it properly, however, I am not that cruel. (As my singing voice is horrible and to be woken by it at four in the morning... well, I think it would result in my death and/or dismemberment.)

Regardless,happy birthday. (
Anyways, it's been great getting to know you, and hopefully you'll have a good day. I will also save your eyes from me dancing. ;) Happy birthday!
