Its me birfday!
45 years today, born in the Payment Ward of the Group Hospital in Hargeisa, Somaliland (then part of the Somali Republic).
Having some friends around for drinks and some bites in the garden later, pizzas, salads, quiches, quail's eggs, humous, bread and strawberries. Anybody want to come over?
The sun is out after a grey start and the birds are singing. The nasturtiums are out in the front of the house, but not the lavatera, although we usually get the first pink flower coming out on my birthday. Things are obviously still abit late after the long cold spring, despite the couple of mini-heatwaves we have had.
A pity they are making such a mess of things in Somalia, all these years later.
Let's hope that these troubles will finally push the world into recognising Somaliland.In the meantime it is not all such bad news. good news on BBC about gay pride in Brazil, on the day they go into action against Australia! Hope its another good match!
