Shhhh. Don’t say anything,
but it’s the Minx’s birthday today.
The thing is that we’re pretending that her birthday is next week, to give us time to organise a little get together for her here in Seattle (we already had a little birthday gathering for her in London) and to make sure that she doesn’t explode from present overload.
So I have of course been feeling like the world’s worst mother today because it was her birthday and she didn’t even know.
