Birthdays, Birthdays

In the dark before morning I lie still,
trapped between sheets and duvet.
I live the day that lies before me
but mostly I worry about birthdays.
About forgetting
About presents and cards and postal strikes.
About almost forgetting
About cakes and flowers and celebrations.
About forgetting.

At least I don't have to do party bags now.

October to Christmas is our busiest time - 3 anniversaries, 4 children's birthdays, 4 adult birthdays - and then the big day at the end of December. Gulp.

And no-one with any sense would do party bags like I did them anyway ;-)
