One of the items on my 2009 birthday wish list was to send Steve a birthday card to mark his One Millionth birthday in 2011. And that's just what I did today. Not just one card, but a "million" little cards for each year of his life so far. In case you think I've gone mad, one million in binary numbers = 64. There are cards all over the place!
We spent Steve's 64th birthday in London, strolling in the sunshine from Westminster along the riverside to Tate Britain, where we enjoyed a quick flirt with The Romantics and a longer liaison with Water Colour after lunch. Far too much to see in one go! Must go back and look at one room at a time, rather than floating aimlessly (which is what I did today - I think Steve was a bit more organised!)
Home for a birthday tea of chocolate cake (one candle for his first million years) and opening cards and presents. The champagne is cooling and there are some delicious nibbles to go with it, just as soon as the birthday cake has gone down.
When you are our age, you can't write a blog about a 64th birthday without quoting the Beatles - so here we go!
