    Happy birthday in Heaven to David's mum, who would have been 92 today. I hope he was able to take her to somewhere in Heaven beside the sea for fish and chips. :heart:

  • It's St Patrick's Day! Guinness all round 🍺
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Absolutely - slāinte!

    Actually, while I wish I liked Guinness, it's a little bitter for my taste.

    I have, however, toasted the saintly gentleman in a glass of WINE.

    Many happy returns, Nicole - you're not far behind me! :)

    It would have been my parents' platinum wedding anniversary today, so I hope they're having a hoolie in Heaven. :heart:

    Not a full anniversary, but it's also a year and a half today since David died. :heartbreak:

  • Sixty years ago today Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space.

    I have vivid memories of the head of our little school speaking about it at assembly. Later in the year he visited London and there were huge crowds lining his route into London.

    Her Majesty The Queen is 95 today.
    Spare a thought for an old lady on her first birthday without her Philip.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Indeed.
  • Prince Louis of Cambridge is 3 today. Pictures in the papers of him riding a bike without stabilisers, which is good at that age. As this shows he looks like his Grandpa Middleton.
  • PigwidgeonPigwidgeon Shipmate
    Today is also William Shakespeare's probable birthday (457 if anyone's planning to bake a cake), as well as the anniversary of his death.

    He's not as cute as little Prince Louis!
  • Just to lower the celebrity factor, it's also Son #2's birthday today.
  • PigwidgeonPigwidgeon Shipmate
    And the Feast of St. George!
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host, 8th Day Host
    Happy birthday to @questioning's Son#2!

    It's a wonderful photograph.

    I think it's one of the new fangled balance bikes which kids propel by running astride them. No stabilisers, but also no pedals.

    I have seen small people reach surprising speeds on them.

    Sixteen years ago it was first date with Mr Alba!

    Given the car crash of my previous years, this was a momentous occasion. Galleries and exhibitions in London interspersed by food in one of the parks. Lovely.

    Married four months later.

    Goodness - that was quick! It took David and me five years!
  • Ethne AlbaEthne Alba Shipmate
    Friends for ages before though...
  • Ha! We went from meeting to being the parents of twins in 16 months 😍

    Wowsers
    I feel dizzy just reading that!
  • We were ... older! Seriously, both financially secure, I wanted children and we were pushing it age-wise for that option at 36 (me) and 40, and it just felt "right" from first meeting.

    I can tell you that it came as a bit of a shock to suddenly find myself a stepfather to two twentysomethings 😯

    2nd of May and its Happy Birthday to Princess Charlotte, who is 6, and David Beckham, 46.

    Today, according to the Book of Face, is International Midwives' Day, so I'd like to give a shout-out to the lovely ladies with whom I work, and all their colleagues who make pregnancy and childbirth as happy an experience as it can be.

    Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is 2 today.
