December 27. Day 361. Nifty at 50

Children are supposed to keep you young, well that's the plan. For some it works far better than others. For some (here I am talking about me) I am pretty sure it leads to premature aging and possibly lots of grey hair (an arrangement I have with my hairdresser means I plan to not be sure on that point). Anyway, for my friend Alison it has clearly worked a treat. Today was Alison's 50th birthday and she is in the somewhat unusual position of being the mum of a toddler. I get tired just thinking about that (I also get tired thinking about what to cook for dinner but I digress). Motherhood has treated her well and it was a great delight to celebrate her birthday with he son and her mum (there were also a couple of flies but we refused to let them spoil the party). So happy birthday to my dear friend. May there be many more.
