    Well... today is her birthday and STILL I have no idea what to do. I've done the Google thing for hours... no help.

    She's 53. Has no hobby. Works at home. Doesn't enjoy "going out."

    I'm REALLY stuck this time! I want do so SOMETHING to make her smile, but I'm at my wits' end.

    How about a photo of yourself...like THIS, for example.

    Well... for more than a decade, I believe it's my duty to society (including my wife) to keep as much of myself covered as possible. Nakedness is best left for the young.

    Besides, I want to make her smile... not laugh out loud.

    You could get an 18 year old Swedish au pair to help her with the housework...

    Rent a good movie, cook her a nice meal with wine and have a cosy night in.

    You're good.... really good.

    So far, I think that's the best.


    OH!.... would I have to say it was your idea?

    I would have said that...but that's more of a weekly thing than just once a year. ;)

    Of course not. But if you've finished with the au pair...
