I’ve had a grrrr kind of day. But I couldn’t help smiling when I stumbled across this chap tonight.
One evening many years ago I was alone and miserable and Lizzie got on the tube and fetched me out for a bit. We sat down on the bar stools and ordered a drink and she opened up her purse, fished inside it and plonked a small, spotty origami dinosaur down on the bar. “Happy Birthday” she said.
I suppose I’ve had quite a few birthday presents over the years, but this is always the first one I think of.
