the straight to your heart times

Short one today.

I figure that your true friends are the people you never appreciate enough on a day to day basis, then they go and do something which just reminds you why they are special in the first place.

The kind of thing I am talking about – coming home and finding that Moose has made me the following wonderful Blackberry Cheesecake Gateaux birthday cake. *1*


For reasons legion and depressing I don’t tend to make a fuss over my birthday, but I do like to mark the occasion quietly (if that makes sense), and this year that’s what I got. Great cake, brilliant friends, and penguin-related gifts. Truly, what more do you need to celebrate your birthday?


*1*I was aware she was making me some form of cake – being banned from your own kitchen two nights in a row can clue you in to something like that – but I had no idea as to what type of cake it would be. Go to Moose’s blog for more on the subterfuge making it entailed.Back
