A Birthday Story


It was my husband's birthday birthday last week. I always make his card last minute. After all, birthday cards for men are easy and this was supposed to be a quick make. In the evening, I sat at my craft table pretending to be busy with something else, but Kurt was constantly hovering around. Eventually, he went to bed and that's when I finally started. Until the card was finished, three hours had passed.

The next morning, I made us pancakes for breakfast. When he saw the card, he was really happy. Phew! We went for lunch to our favourite cafĂ© in Tring, The Espresso Lounge, which was a nice break away from the work I had to complete for a magazine. In the evening, we ordered Indian takeaway for a cosy dinner at home. Shortly after Kurt left to pick up the food, he called to say that they hadn't received our order. He returned not long after that, telling me that he had stopped at the wrong restaurant on the way to the one we had ordered from. He'd made a big scene there about the food not being ready and... here comes the best part.. received a £10 voucher!

Here is my birthday card for him and as you can tell, he turned 38.

Did I not say that men's cards are easy-peasy?
