Happy Birthday Neil

Today is my wonderful husband's birthday, not that he wants to be reminded - he is wondering how he got to the age he is today. No I'm not going to give his age away but I do know what he means though, isn't it weird how you never feel as old as you actually are? My 92 year old aunt tells me she still feels how she did when she was a young woman and when she goes to the day centre she attends a couple of times a week she wonders at her being there with “all the old folks”, bless her!
Anyway, Neil is off to work today, guiding tourists at Rosslyn Chapel and I'm heading off to the shops in a minute to buy some lovely, yummy food for his birthday dinner tonight. Looking forward to seeing all the family together.
His birthday card is what I'm sharing today, I've used some Basic Grey paper + 1 other - (details later when I can get access to my desk), Whimsy ticket die and Stampin Up punched bird and branch.
