Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday and I came downstairs this morning to find this:

Presents from my lovely mother (who does not make me solve puzzles before I can open them cos she's much nicer than I am!) I managed to restrain myself long enough to drink my coffee before ripping them open to find...

Lots of goodies! The purple pouch contained an obsidian pendant with a pig on it cos I was born in the Year of the Pig. And the gin comes in a pouch cos it's intended to refill the original ceramic bottle, which we have cos it was the gin in the Craft Gin Club box last month and we liked it a lot!

Not long after opening those the doorbell rang and it was a delivery of presents from my brother:

Can you tell I like Harry Potter and jigsaws? Lol. The champagne went straight in the fridge and we plan to drink it this evening. I had considered waiting until Rob came home for a visit so we could all share it together, but who knows how long that will be? Better to enjoy my birthday present on my bithday!


I decided against going anywhere to celebrate cos I couldn't think of anything that sounded fun to do with all the restrictions currently in place. Instead I stayed at home and rewatched season one of Downton Abbey while building the Lego NES. I could possibly have done it all in one day, but I stopped after five episodes and have so far made the console, controller, cartridge and part of the TV:

I have the week off work, so that's plenty of time to finish both the rewatch and the set. I'm thinking that I'll probably continue the rewatch into season two as well. And possibly season three. But definitely no further than that!

And finally, bask in the glory of my traditional epic poem of birthday brilliance:

36 has divisors galore
But I am 36 no more
Now for a year after I make this rhyme
My age will be a number that's prime
