Happy Birthday Dave!

This happy morn marks the anniversary of my dear husband's birth....just a few years ago.

It's a sunny morn so far and the mist on the river has evaporated already (which is a shame cos it's dead spooky and cool).

He's opened his birthday cards, received a couple of calls from La Familia....and sadly had to make his own breakfast. (It's too complicated and gag-worthy for me....a combination of 6 different fruit juices and some green powder called Spirulina which they claim cures everything)

A highlight so far has been a personal email wishing him Happy Bday from Lily Savage - icon of TV quiz show Blankety Blank.
(Ok, it may have been faked by Sarah D....but we're believing it to be the real thing).

Well what can I say in tribute to Davey Wavey, Caveman Dave or Henry as his mates from London used to call him?
(these are the same mates who called his new mobile phone - this was back in the day when having a mobile phone was a new thing - and told him they were from Telecom and they needed to test the reception. They then led him through a series of tests which culminated in him standing on his desk in the middle of the office to see if the phone still worked...while they laughed at him from round the corner. Ahhhh those lads....)

He's Mr Energy....the man with the plan...always dashing here and there (that's how he first caught my eye.....running past me in church)...with more oomph than an oompa loompa.

Motivated, mischevious and manly....he's just Mmmmmmm to me.

He always makes me laugh (even when I'm trying to be disapproving...hence I coined the phrase "I may be laughing, but I don't think it's funny").

Fit as a fiddle (why is a fiddle fit?)

My knight in shining armour...he's rescued me when the buses made me cry, from a potential kidnapper...and in many other ways.

A man prepared to leave his successful business, 6 figure salary and kudos in order to come and live in a warehouse with me to get our hearts sorted out.

A man born to take risks, rise to challenges and negotiate his way into or out of anything....

He's quite the guy this David Richards.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

well, may i be the first on this here mushy blog to confirm the manliness and otherwise mischeivousness of this most gregarious and wonderfully funky friend o' mine called Dave. i wish i was there to slap you on the back and engage you in a staredown. afterwards we could go torture some racoons with flaming marshmellows and down a few pints of newkie. but, all we can do for now is ya pal.
