Happy Birthday Darrell

Darrell's Birthday
Darrell has been crossing off the days until his birthday on his calendar diligently since the beginning of the month and although he had his main birthday present when he went to see Take That, he was still spoiled rotten.
Happy Birthday Darrell
He had so many cards and presents it took him ages to open them all.  I bought him the checked shirt he’s been looking at for ages, Nigel got him some chocolate and some millions sweets and Aunty Jan found him 3 carabiners, which she said are very useful for attaching things to. He also had a mini tool kit, a wash bag and a pencil set ….. and lots, lots more, so he will be very busy writing his thank you letters in the next day or so. “I feel truly blessed in a Hello magazine type way” he sighed.

On our birthdays we can choose our special birthday tea, Darrell asked for egg, chips and spaghetti hoops with bread and butter followed by strawberries (which he said are seasonal, one of our five a day and can be locally sourced) with squirty cream for pudding.  He didn’t want a fancy birthday cake but asked instead for a battenberg with a candle on as it is all our very favourite celebratory cake of choice and he wanted us all to have something special on his birthday as well.

When Nigel saw it he gave Darrell such a huge squeeze!
