A Small Favour to Ask

Standard

Hello, kind friends. I would like to ask a favour of you – just of some of you – just the ones who have been hanging around reading my blog for a year or more.

You stalwart readers know all about my best friend, Socks. I blogged about her pregnancy for … well, about nine months, give or take. It was a helluva ride for all, especially at the end!

Now and again I would mention her husband Bear. Usually to poke fun at him for saying something silly and/or revealing about his fears at becoming a dad.

He survived all that.

But now – he’s about to become something worse: FORTY.

Yes, I know – quite a lot of you (and me) smile at recollections of our 40th. But you know he’s a sensitive guy, and far from his family and friends right now, dealing with being a first-time home owner, business owner, new dad, and now the insult of being “old.”

I’d like to ask you to post a happy birthday wish in the comments, which I will send to Socks. She’s making a compilation of Happy to ease her Big Bear’s difficult transition.

Will you help?

  1. Happy Birthday Bear! We kind of feel we know you through the Socks/Button era on this blog. You’re a lucky man to have those two girls in your life (and dear Spiders) so, have a great day and relish all you have, including your relative youth ๐Ÿ˜€

    • You made MY day by mentioning Button -I’m so happy to be reminded that people actually read my blog! I’ve made a compilation of everyone’s comments, with an explanation for Bear of who you are and why you are special. Thank you for being the first! I really appreciate it, and tomorrow sometime I’ll hear how all this was received!

  2. Happy Birthday Bear! Hey, 40 is nothing, you’re actually just a spring rooster. Just remember to live every day like it’s your last. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a wonderful day. xxx

    • Thank you, J! I’m having to copy and paste my answer as time is short: I’ve made a compilation of everyone’s comments, with an explanation for Bear of who you are and why you are special. I really appreciate it, and tomorrow sometime I’ll hear how all this was received!

  3. Ah, 40. Brian is also approaching it with trepidation. Never fear. It won’t hurt a bit. Time is relative but so is age. Time to start acting your shoe size again. Maybe your European shoe size… for safety’s sake. Happy birthday Bear!

  4. I tease hubby about being “old,” but he’s only 4 years older than me, and it’s just to take the piss out of him. I don’t know why people actually INSULT other people about their age, as if it’s something ANYONE has control over.
    Happy Birthday, Bear! Not everyone is lucky enough to have forty birthdays!

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
