An early 'Happy Birthday'

I'm sorry for doing this today, three days early, but I'm going away for a few days, well out of reach of the interweb, and I couldn't let the occasion slip by without me posting about it.

Friday 15 March is the birthday of my dearest friend, ilmera. As a gentleman, I won't say how old she is but she is the perfect friend at any age.

We have known each other for about ten years now and, to paraphrase what she said about me on my birthday recently, she has a refined sense of humour, which has always seen us "on the same wavelength" even when we didn't know each other very well. Now that I know her much better, I can confirm that she has a million wonderful qualities - in no particular order - warmth, thoughtfulness, intelligence, wisdom, beauty, generosity, strength, understanding, curiosity, to name but a wee bunch.

It makes me incredibly proud to know her and to be her friend. I was like a dog with at least two tails when she came to visit earlier in the year. I was also honoured, while she was here, to be able to take some photos of her, photos I've posted before, but a couple of which are posted again as a special tribute.

Happy Birthday, dear, from the bottom of my heart. You mean the world to me.
