SD is rubbish at Birthdays. Well, at his own anyway, he's pretty good at other peoples.
The thing is he never wants anything. He doesn't want a fuss. He doesn't want a cake and he doesn't want presents.
I do not understand his complete disinterest in his own Birthday!
It's so at odd with the way I feel. I like a fuss, I'd be so disappointed not to get a cake and I love presents.
But it's SD's Birthday so I do it his way.
There won't be a huge fuss although I think we will go out for dinner.
There won't be a cake which is a shame because cakes are my THING, they're what I do to show people I love them.
There will be a few presents. Things I know SD will like because at some time over the last year he has pointed them out.
But it will be a quiet affair.
Not much of a Birthday at all in my opinion but that's not what counts. It will be the Birthday SD wants and it will be a happy occasion without all the fluff and glitter that I like.
The thing is, we have LOTS of special occasions. We don't limit ourselves to Birthdays and other more traditional celebrations. We have had so many special days over the last year, over the past few years actually. SD is very good at special occasions when they don't involve his Birthday.
I've picked out a few photos from the past year or so. There are many, many more I could use and each and every one of them was a very special occasion for us.

|Budleigh again - SD doing his poster boy pose - those trousers! You either love 'em or hate 'em (I LOVE them!)|

|Minehead a couple of weeks ago - not the prettiest of places but the view still looks good to me!|
I'm just happy to be spending his Birthday with him - he's very special you know.
