Oh dear, and there I was going to be good, and stop eating so much virtual cake!
But first there was Gymmie's, and then Cleander's, and a late one for Dany, too. Oh well.

Happy birthday, Rya!

Thank you for the birthday wishes, everyone! :) I'm taking a half-day off work so I can enjoy most of my birthday, though now I'm kind of wishing I'd taken the whole day off. ;)) Still, in a little over an hour, I get to relax as hard as I want. :P

Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! ( Sorry for the belated response)
@ johobbit: Yes, I do play bagpipes, but I'm still very much in the learning stage right now. ( I'm also trying not to tax my lungs too much what with allergies and all, so it'll be a while before I get back to normal practice again.)
Thanks for the virtual cake, that design is awesome!
Happy birthday Ryadian!

Happy birthday to our favourite astronomer, stargazer!
Here's a place in my home country that you might get to look at our southern stars one day! (I'm in an earlier time zone than most of you, so I get notifications ahead of most Narniawebbers)

Wishing a wonderful birthday to our very own stargazer! :ymparty: Although these are strange times, we hope that your special day is exactly that, as you celebrate with family and friends, even at a distance. I am grateful to know you! :)

Love that wish, Rose, and hence, speaking of stars ...

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone!

These are indeed unusual times but this thread is a nice reminder of virtual friends we've come to know here. I'm grateful for all the friendships here.

I'd like to see that southern Milky Way someday, coracle. Perhaps in the next decade or so. ;))

Thanks for the cake, Jo. You always find such interesting and appropriate designs.

I did indeed see a few stars this morning, along with the very pretty full moon. If the clouds stay away I hope to see Venus this evening.
But all night, Aslan and the Moon gazed upon each other with joyful and unblinking eyes.

Ooh wow, a solar system cake! :D

Happy Birthday, Stargazer — glad you're having a good one. If you ever do see the southern hemisphere stars, you'll have to learn how to find the Southern Cross (look for the two Pointers). My other favourite constellation is Orion, which is visible in the southern skies for part of the year (over our summer). I haven't learned the northern stars yet, but whenever I see Orion here, it's like seeing an old friend! (Except he's the other way up over here.)

Happy Birthday to you, Courtenay! :ymparty: Hoping it is a delightful day for you. It's good having you a part of NarniaWeb's forum. :D

Mmm, these nursing cupcakes looks tasty, and so nicely done!

Thank you, Wunderkind Lucy and johobbit! I'm actually a Christian Science nurse, so I don't give medication or medically-based treatment, but I deeply appreciate the gesture and they do look delicious!! :)
