Happy Birthday to lots of people
I was quite amazed this morning on logging into Facebook to find that so many of my friends have birthdays today. Some I knew about, others, like Charlotte, I didn't. I'm sure that they will all be delighted to know that they share their birthday with Ant from Ant and Dec.
This week has been quite busy for birthdays, too. I was trying to work out why this might be but my friend Jane got there first - we're more or less nine months from Valentine's Day!
As a breastfeeding helper, I always found that my busiest times were April (right in the middle of election campaigns which made sure I had even less time for things like eating and sleeping) and September/October which are 9 months after the Summer holidays and Christmas respectively. I'd not really noticed a peak in mid November before. It's interesting that almost all my friends who have birthdays this week seem to have been born in a 7 year period between 1973 and 1980.
Anyway, I hope that anyone who has a birthday this week has a wonderful day and a bright and happy year ahead.
