Well, today I was really in need of a pick-me-up. Work is rubbish at the moment, on top of the usual, it's one of the busy times. Yey.
Anyway, I walk in and there's a card from Australia on the mat (it's 226, Chip) which was undeliverable until they read the name (!) Anyway, it's really cheered me up, despite being a bit cheeky about me being old.
So, thanks Chip! It didn't make it for my birthday, but it did turn up when I really needed something happy.
Without my friends, as widely scattered as they are now, I would not remember to laugh at myself and the stupid things in my life that I sometimes take too seriously.
