Weekendus Mirabilis

Lots of things to be patriotically proud about this weekend. Our gutter press is not one of them but Kate is – a sensible pretty English upper middle-class girl who, having been going out with a Prince for a decade, bravely enters her gilded, paparazzi-patrolled prison with eyes open.

So, a cynicism-defyingly joyful Royal Wedding, Manchester United lose and they kill Osama bin Laden; yes, I’d call that a pretty good weekend.

But it’s back to work now, a mega-Tuesday, the hangovers have accumulated and, to put the tin lid on it, it’s my birthday.

Cheer yourself up over at The Dabbler with my selection of four songs that will make you LOL.

One more milestone on the great wearisome trudge through the slings and arrows of life's outrageous fortune interspersed with the odd bright spot, Happy birthday Brit.

Only those dumb arsed monkey's on the Guardian, eh?

Happy Birthday xx You obviously didn't watch Will and Kate: The Movie...

Brit said...

Thanks all.

Susan - no but I've heard great things about it...

Happy Birthday.

So, a Taurian - strength, stamina, a stubborn will. But loving, appreciative and sympathetic (it says here). Patient, practical and efficient. Good teachers, and good in business. May have their own best interests at heart (hem, hem), but ultimately generous with time, possessions and love.
Well, I'll go to the bottom of our stairs - that covers just about all the bases. Never mind John Paul's beatification - we have a saint here among us. Happy Birthday Saint Brit - if I had a blog with a list of 'comrades', you would be on it..

Brit said...

Thank you, Mahlerman, though I will NEVER EVER EVER submit to the charge of having a stubborn will, dammit.

Well it's about time you lot went back to work! 4 day weekends with a 3 day week in the middle?

Sounds vaguely and now distantly familiar.

"Don't leave your torch behind,
A power-cut ahead,
Nineteen seventy two you know..."
Morrissey

Happy birthday Brit.

Happy birthday! The day after my youngest's and until exams intrude quite a good time of year to celebrate.

A very late (perhaps I should just give up and wait till it comes around next year - no, I might miss it again) happy birthday.
