A couple of month’s ago I gave Emma her birthday present early. She’d just had her bike after all (a joint birthday and Christmas pressie from her folks) and so I bought her some lights for the bike. But that was two months ago. It feels wrong not to give her anything now (Thursday) though, so this evening after work I wandered into town to be seduced by oh-so-shiny objects in glittering shop windows. I did buy something extra for Emma’s birthday but discretion will stop me saying anything now.
