It was my birthday last Friday, and ‘When I’m Sixty Four’ took on a little more weight for a day or so.
It was an enjoyable, low-key event. A few cards, a box of liquorice allsorts from my granddaughters and a couple of books: China Dream by Ma Jian, and To the River: A Journey Beneath the Surface by Olivia Laing.
The eldest granddaughter baked a wonderful cake, long since devoured (the cake, not the granddaughter).
In the evening I kicked back and watched The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a thoroughly entertaining Coen brothers film.
And to top it all, I hear that Blac Rabbit just released ‘Seize the Day’. If you don’t know the band, check out their Beatles covers on YouTube.
