Today, March 11th, is my oldest son's birthday. He is 50. How can that have happened?
When I spoke to him recently he asked "Does it make you feel old?". I replied "Not really, it worries me more that you're catching-up with me.
When he was about one, I was over twenty times his age; now at 50 I'm a lot less than twice his age.
He's always been a good boy. When travelling the world on his pre-Oxford Gap Year, not once did he phone home for cash. He's never been out of work. At present he's an executive in European Asset Management (whatever that is), and he's a dab-hand at opening Supermarkets, high rise buildings, etc.
I don't wish to over-bang his drum, but he's always made us very proud of his achievements.
He's also a 2020 Covid-19 survivor.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY darling. Lots of love from Papa xxx
