I've had a low key, if extremely pleasant birthday this year. (And it was made even more pleasant by all the lovely birthday greetings from you all!)

The highlight was probably taking Ros skating for the first time this year. She started off a bit wobbly, but that didn't last long, and she kept us on the ice for nearly two hours. Two hours! By the end, my toes were freezing and my face had gone numb, but she insisted she wasn't at all cold and wanted to keep going. I was saved from hypothermia by the sun going down. (Well, the rink has lights, but I wasn't about to point that out.)

For dinner, I took the Sweetie and Ros for their first Mongolian Grill experience. Ros now has another restaurant she says she'll go to, so that was a success.

As for the pressies, there was no wrapped up Howard Donald forthcoming--the Sweetie balks at the kidnapping of British pop stars--but he did get me prints of Kate Beaton's Jam Watson and Gay Watson cartoons, so there's a visit to my favourite framing store in the offing.

There was also this t-shirt )

And we have managed to track down a baby sitter for tomorrow afternoon, so there will be an outing to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie, completing the weekend's Holmes theme.

ETA: Almost forgot, huge thanks for [ profile] solosundance, [ profile] moth2fic, [ profile] ancastar, [ profile] sc_fossil, [ profile] just_ann_now and [ profile] kotirion for the snowman cookies and cupcake!)

Notes: Written around a prompt [ profile] draycevixen gave me for a [ profile] help_haiti drabble. (I know it's the wrong fandom--the right one is coming soon--and it's a tad more than a drabble. But I'm hoping you'll enjoy it.) Thanks to [ profile] callistosh65, [ profile] shayheyred, and [ profile] ancastar for awesome beta comments.
