    DH seems to be enjoying his birthday today 🎉. We had morning coffee in the garden ☕, the sun was out ☀️ and it always seems quiet and peaceful at that time of day. He's pleased with his presents 🎁 and the DC all bought him something thoughtful. Now he's happily watching a film 📺 and munching chocolates 🍫. We're not getting a takeway for money-saving and virus-related reasons, but I'm going to cook instead. 

    Apart from ironing some tops for work I don't need to do much else today but relax and as it's been a tiring week I intend to 🙂.
    I think a lot of men aren't too bothered about a lot of birthday fuss. As long as it's remembered, there are cards and something nice to eat, they're happy !

    Enjoy a relaxing day.

    (Got out of prison Fri evening, put washing on, hung it out -  and it promptly rained all over it !!!)
    Thanks Elizabeth :). I'm glad you're out of prison.
    Happy Birthday to DH 🎂 We never order takeaways either, I'm always disappointed with them and don't like the idea of not being able to see where they're cooked. I don't eat meat and don't like to think that my food might be in contact with it. You can make lots of nice fakeaways - much healthier and budget friendly.
    Thanks SA :). I agree about takeways, I often feel that they're not worth the money as we could have cooked something just as nice. I don't think vegetarian takeaway options are that good anyway.
