    What do you fancy for your birthday @Dovefromabove;)
    I know quite a few folk with 'C'mas approaching' birthdays. Bad timing by the parents I say....  :D
    The problem is you come out of winter and women shed three layers of clothing and finally shave their legs after months of looking like a wookie and everyone's blood gets up because spring is in the air. Or blokes bought them some good chocolate for easter to make up for forgetting Valentine's day and they finally forgave him a bit. The trick is to stay in the bad books all year round. Much cheaper in the long run.

    @wild edges :D

    If it's really that bad - you can always nip up to the local garage for a bunch of sad carnations...that always works well....
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Or a leftover bunch from a florist, with a card addressed to someone else lurking in the folds of the wrapping paper. That'll do it too.
    Then there's the birthday card chosen with such love and care, that he even remembered to cross out 'son' on the front.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Or change the numbers on the card @B3...
    I did that for my BIL's 60th birthday. A nice Superhero card of some sort for a 6 yr old boy.  :)

    When I was 30, some thoughtful 'friend' bought me a birthday card with a badge attached.
    It read.  "I USED TO BE 29" 😐

    I bought my wife an acer for valanetines day one year. Being a deciduous tree in February it made quite a display  :#  At least I picked one with red bark though. She was still more pleased than she would have been with cut flowers. The benefit of marrying a gardener I suppose.

    I do keep telling OH not to buy me flowers.  You'd get a couple of decent shrubs for the same price.

    Indeed @wild edges. My ex never quite got the hang of that.

    Not an ex because of it though  ;)
