An official birthday, obviously, but funnily enough, exactly 9 months after the feast of the Immaculate Conception.  Well, it’s raining, the weather is turning more Autumnal, I could do with an excuse to eat cake.

Flowers: yes, I should think so.
Eats: birthday cake, do you think?  And wine, definitely.
And let’s have ‘Happy Birthday, dear Mary’ while we’re at it.
