Last night, she called to ask me to come to her birthday party tomorrow. "Auntie, please will you come and see me on Saturday?" She sounded like she wasn't sure I'd say yes. Last week, Mum had told me Monique (my sister) was planning to hold the party on Sunday, and I said I already had plans -- my vicar friend is being confirmed in her new congregation on Sunday afternoon, and I'd already agreed to come to her inaugural service. I said of course I'll come, wouldn't miss it for the world; but my problem now is that I'm left with very little time to shop for a birthday present. It's been a long time since I was twelve...does anyone have any ideas as to what to give a 21st century girl who already has everything she could possibly want/need?
Oh blast! I do have to make it home again before Doctor Who starts, or I'll be in a foul mood for the rest of the week. 35 Hours, 5 minutes, and counting!
