This morning I woke up beside my man for the first time in almost 6 weeks. To my surprise, (and confusion) he began murmur in a strangely songlike manner what sounded like a groggy rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’. On the last line, I had the delayed realisation that he was actually serenading me, and that it was in fact my birthday today! In the past weeks I’ve pushed the fact that my birthday has been approaching to the back of my mind, not wanting to feel the ultimate disappointment today should Bazil not have made it back to Australia yesterday. But he made it in the end, and while his presence was the best present I could have received, there was also this:
This thoughtful little compilation so carefully put together made my day. Bazil is very much dominant in using the left, more logical side of his brain. Creativity is not one of his strong points, and knowing that a lot of time and effort would have gone into bringing this gift into existence makes it even more special. I had to laugh as I noted that many of the points Bazil listed as things he missed about me, are the things he always complains most about when we’re together. I’m glad I now have documented evidence that he does in fact support my beach treasure hunting endeavours. I’m sure this will be useful information at some point in the future.
