Birthday Blues

James Proclaims (4)

Hello blogosphere!

Today is the 4th April and therefore it is my birthday. My birthday is on the 4th April every year and I fully anticipate maintaining this tradition for many years to come.

One of the main reasons, indeed possibly the only reason, that I went into the education profession was that the 4th April is always in the Easter holidays and so, theoretically, I would never have to work on my birthday.

This theory has been proven incorrect on three occasions since I joined the teaching ranks. Arguably the worst was a few years back when my birthday fell on a working Monday, but today was almost as bad, for today is Tuesday and once again I found myself at the metaphorical coalface of my profession.

Day 3 of the A-Z challenge (cos we get Sundays off apparently) and in my experience the third letter of the alphabet is the letter ‘C’.  So my word of the day is ‘Cookie’.

I have chosen this word so that I can unashamedly highlight the fact that today is my birthday. ‘Birthday’ begins with a ‘B’ and we’ve already done ‘B’ but fortunately my lovely wife presented me with this awesome giant birthday cookie this morning.

Admittedly ‘cake’ also starts with a ‘C’ so a birthday cake would’ve been fine for the purposes of my A-Z challenge, but, and no disrespect to cake at all here, I do prefer a birthday cookie. Continue reading C Is For Cookie

What do you get the man who has everything?

Probably not Sudoku Loo Roll. He’ll already have some if he’s got everything and no-one needs two rolls of Sudoku themed toilet paper.

But if you’re trying to buy a gift for the man who never really wants anything, then Sudoku Loo Roll could well be a winner.
