Birthday Discordance

It was Lady P’s birthday today, so we had to indulge a family tradition and phone her at a very early hour to sing Happy Birthday as badly as possible to her voicemail. She’d popped round briefly the night before to have a chin wag, so we’d taken the opportunity to give her a card and her present, a beautifully striking pair of ear cuffs sourced from our great friends at Ollie Noble. The back of one of them is shown here. They’ll apparently be worn at her party on Saturday night, so I’ll try and remember to get a shot of them in action then.

The rest of my day was fairly routine, though we were upset to hear that one of Lady M’s relatives had been laid to rest today without our being told when or where the funeral service was going to be. We’ll make our own way up to pay respects now, but the assumption that we wouldn’t be able, or intend to be there is painful. Deep breaths and a reminder that the assumption likely comes from knowing how hard Lady M works and the distances involved in attending. This is the positive interpretation.

On a more engaging note, I was also modding for this evening’s Artyfakes stream, and a lively time was had by all. The events of #tabbygate shall not be things of which we speak. Many new #MadeUpModFacts were revealed, and some of the audience joined in with #MadeUpFanFacts, so nobody felt left out.

Lady M is still recovering from her infection, but seems in reasonable spirits otherwise. Hopefully she’ll be back in action soon.
