Thank you, aileth, & also coracle. :ymhug: Yes, today is going to be 45C. I would appreciate those icy, snowbearing thoughts very much to cool the place down. Yes ice blocks aplenty would be great. I'll probably look out for a new ice-cube tray to catch them in, to keep us all hydrated with lovely icy drinks. Does anyone like Pineapple fruit juice? Or good old-fashioned Passiona*? Tomato juice with squeezes of lemon juice, a drop or two of Tabasco sauce plus a dash of Worcestershire sauce, garnished with ice cubes & celery sticks sounds quite fancy for a celebration in a nice cool place, don't you think? I can't wait for the cool change we are promised tomorrow. Your kind thoughts might make it more of a certainty.

Happy belated birthday to all my fellow NarniaWebbers with birthdays last December and January up to date, and for the remainder of the month. Providing I haven't already melted to a puddle any time soon, I will see you all later in the year. :D

*Passionfruit flavoured soda. I don't know if you have it elsewhere in the world. :D

Happy birthday, wagga! :ymparty: Hope you get your birthday wish of cooler temps soon! :)

(I haven't heard of passionfruit flavored soda before, but it sounds delicious!)

Thank you, once again, Rose. :ymhug: !. It appears that like macadamia nuts, quandongs, Paw paw and lilli pilli, passion fruit are native ingredients then. Mangos & watermelon drinks are also nice cool flavours that would be available elsewhere?

Cheers everyone! :ymparty:

Happy birthday, wagga. Hope it wasn't too hot.

Sorry for my tardiness in sending you celebratory wishes, wagga! I can't imagine that oppressive heat #:-s but am offering you a cool-looking birthday treat in the meantime. Take good care! And a very Happy Birthday to you! :ymparty: :D

Indeed! Hoping you both had really special birthdays, Wren and Arwenel! :ymparty: :ymparty: :D :D

And, for a treat, a Baked Alaska (which I have made in the past, but this specific photo is not one of my own creations) ...

Ooh! Baked elastic, jo! Hold on, wasn't that Paddington's mistake? Maybe it would be just as well to try the real stuff someday.

:)) Oh my, yes indeed, aileth.

(And that's all I have to say for now, as there are no known birthdays today. :P)

But, one month later, it is a special birthday for Digory Kirke, one of our mod team and a fantastic person to know.

I would be putting my legendary hugging gif on here if it were possible.

Instead...
