Hattie wanted something original for Bertie’s birthday, especially as it was his 40th.
He made a few quid from his street art, and never wanted much, saying he had everything he needed.
She got the idea from watching TV, and happily got things together the day before.
It wouldn’t matter if it wasn’t perfect as Bertie always said that it was the imperfections in things that made them unique.
Placing her creation on a paper plate, she proudly took the cake down to his patch in the High Street. The forty candles she’d used for hair took some blowing out!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
