The Surprise

"You are coming for your run tomorrow, aren't you?", my friend asked.
"How can I not?"
My Saturday runs are precious, and having a birthday on Friday, was no excuse for bunking a run.

I woke up with a back-ache, but didn't want to miss my first run of the decade. I struggled during my run, but was still glad I'd made it.
When I made it back, there was music belting out, the mood was festive. "What's the occasion?", I gasped, before catching sight of the white chocolate cake.
Nothing can beat the joy of a surprise birthday party!

Oh, how fun! Surprise birthday parties are precious.

Sorry I've been absent for so long, but I'm trying to get back into visiting and commenting mode. I understand what you say about needing 30 hours in a day.
