It’s my birthday

Happy birthday
to me!

I had a lovely birthday in Bushy Park with our daughter and the two little ones, followed by chocolate cake back at their home.

And then to open some lovely presents (see below) including some Nordic walking poles.

hopefully bringing joy to other kids when they find them!

The orange birthday present

The family were at a pub for my wife’s birthday. I mentioned this to the waitress when we ordered our puddings, and when they came out so did a candle with two waitresses singing ‘Happy Birthday’. And then we all started singing, and then also the diners in our section, much to my wife’s embarrassment! A few minutes later one of the diners came over to our table and gave my wife this orange thingy he’d made using a 3D printer. He was a very chatty guy, a Geordie. I got the impression he occasionally gave these away.

The video on the right shows you how complex an object can be manufactured using 3D printers.
