Dooby-DOO-doo-DO-doooo

Quite a short post today, just one bit of info to impart.

Assuming that most people will read this 'tomorrow' (i.e. 7th
November) - although I don't understand time differences at all - I shall be all subtle and wish The Carbon Copy a very Happy Birthday. See what you can deduce from that.... ! The picture is the wonderful birthday cake Our Vicar's Wife made last year.

And a good opportunity to say how nice it is to have you all stop by. With the exceptions of the few unpleasant 'anonymous' comments (why bother commenting? why read the blog at all, one wonders?) you're a lovely, lovely bunch of people and it's a pleasure to know you'll pop along and share some bookish chat. Currently getting around 110-130 'unique users' a day, according to StatCounter, and each and every one is very welcome. Hope you've found something to enjoy and to read whilst you've been here!

  4. Sadly no cake from OVW this year - but have a slice of the virtual one - much better for the figure!
    Not sure I could live up to last year's standard anyway (but then last year's was a Very Special Birthday!)
    Have a great day. Mum

  12. The Very Best of Wishes to you on your birthday, Simon!! And to CC too of course. Wowzeeees, to OVW for that cake last year - way beyond anything ever attempted in this household.

  13. I can't believe you've said such nasty things about me, and on my birthday too. Honestly, my name really is 'Anonymous' - it was a cruel joke by my mother. Why must you taunt me?
    Have a great birthday, kid.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
