    Have only read this now so a belated 'Happy Birthday' for you both.

    If its any comfort, there is EXACTLY a year between mr MOD and I , so we tend to go out on the night that's the most convenient.....thing is as we get older (or the more we use this site?) we find the night to go out less and less .....or is that us just getting old???

    My wife and I were born on exactly the same day of the same year! We got married on that day 47 years later. No excuse for forgetting an anniversary!:T

    My OH & I were born on the same day, in the same room at the maternity hospital. Just in case you think that is toooo weird, there was only one room, and I was born at 1pm ( lunchtime) and he was born at 7pm ( pub opening time). 30 years later, his nephew was born , he later emigrated to Australia. All the family went out there on his 21st and we had a whale of a time. I do sometimes feel cheated though, as I imagine twins might feel. To this extent, I now have an "official" birthday- 24th Feb and an unnofficial one usually sometime in the summer. Just like the Queen !!!!

    PS. Just how long has Martin been 33?
