I’m not great on remembering birthdays, most of the time not even my own. I’m not even all that worried about celebrating it. So the fact that the ultimate day for mating happened to coincide with my birthday did not worry me all that much.
(Although it did worry my family and friends somewhat. “Does it have to be on your birthday?” Yes it had to…)
I can of course think of better ways to spend your birthday than a 5 hour-long train journey, but so what?
It turned out to be a great day!
Perhaps not all that glamorous (unless you consider a take-away Chinese and standing out in the cold holding two dogs during a very
long tie glamorous).
But Camilla and I did have the champagne to go with it and I of course had my cigars (thinking my birthday would be a good time to kick THAT
habit – but not doing much about it).
We sat up talking about old time (like you do when you are getting older and older…and tipsier by the minute).
After the second mating the day after, there was the same boring journey back…
But once I got home and turned on the computer, I was totally overwhelmed!
Loads of Birthday-greetings from all over the world!
So thank you all for sending those messages! It was great and I hope I will one day see you all in person.
Tons of love to you all
