Happy Birthday Ellen

Feeling exceedingly old today, as my little girl turns 16 years of age. You can probably imagine how that feels, even if you've never been in the same position.

Her presents were a hit this morning. The first series of the Mighty Boosh on DVD, and a ticket to see Sir Ian McKellen in King Lear.

I know the second one is not the sort of thing the average 16 year old would be interested in, but then she's not the average 16 year old. Her obsession with the Boosh, and Noel Fielding in particular, is a recent development. Ian McKellen probably dates back to Gandalf and The Lord of the Rings.

I haven't told her that apparently Sir Ian gets his kit off. I'm afraid of putting her off the idea.

I'm so thankful that, at least to date, we have remained firm friends. There few other people I would like to spend time with than with my (formerly) little girl.

So for Ellen, here's a gratuitous picture of the object of her affection.
