Back in March, I had the good fortune of my birthday falling on the exact weekend before lockdown, which is just as well since it was a combination of everything we’re not allowed to do at present.

Another quinquennium is upon me. 🎂

Celebrating 10 years of this malcontented ragdoll terrorising the other animals, shitting on the floor when his box isn’t clean enough, screaming at us because we’re not following his ordained feeding schedule…and being forgiven for all his crimes when he jumps up on the bed for cuddles every night and morning. Happy birthday, Alf. 💙🎈

Please join me in wishing a Happy 1st Birthday to our beautiful birthday bear! 🐻🎂 🎉🎈

I also made a video to commemorate all his puppy adventures during his first year. Featuring all his favourite furry friends, you can see Giles with his feline siblings (and the very special bond he’s forged with his sister); his neighbour Lady Fudge; his cousin Rusty the Husky; and his adopted pack over at Townhounds Dogwalking! (All Townhounds photos kindly provided by Giles’ Auntie Angie Koorbanally.)

John’s all-time favourite movie is the original Helen Slater Supergirl (I’m not exaggerating when I say that he knows it word-for-word), so for his birthday this year I commissioned the incredible IBTrav to create this original artwork. (Yes, the same IBTrav whose artwork I used for my tattoo!) I was so excited when I received this amazing finished design that my biggest struggle was not showing it to John the second it arrived! 💙❤️️

John’s birthday breakfast at Rose & Grants.

Featuring the second best square faux-sausage in Glasgow. (First is Soy Division.) This was followed by massages and cinema: a more dignified sight than the one of him tanning a bottle of champagne a few hours later.

Gosh, that was a lot of hair colours ago.

To the Lighthouse.

Aging gracefully in the Provand’s Lordship – medieval dwelling and the oldest remaining house in Glasgow. Because what better way to make me feel better about my birthday than surrounding myself with things even older than I am.

If any of you are Tumblr users, you might be familiar with this photo of Minerva as a kitten, which now has something insane like 300,000+ notes. The above recreation, however, was taken on this very day, in celebration of her second birthday! A tad bigger than when she arrived, but no less crazy. Long may her reign of terror continue!

It was my birthday earlier this month, which I spent in the company of my fellow dinosaurs, and with a cocktail in both hands.

…and a happy birthday to Wilfred! Three months old in this photo and three years old today, he’s definitely gotten fluffier in the interim; I’m just not convinced that he ever got very much bigger!
