Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my birthday and am spending the day with my carer Alan, and later on, with Dad and Debra. Apparently I have a suprise meal waiting for me!. I am having a meal with my mum on Wednesday, and there will no doubt be another blog on Saturday when I visit my favourite restaurant in Norwich – Merchants of Spice 2, and see my sister Katie. I have already had a massive picture from my Dad and Debra of London that is taking up most of the wall!. I hope to have loads more presents on Wednesday and Saturday. I have had a great day so far.
Update: I had a delicous meal made by stepmum Debra, and I had a great London game bought for me, which of course I won at! Thank you to everyone for all your lovely comments. Please continue to support my blog.

    1. I agree Andy, I do normally get my favourite table when I go! Sometimes I am in competition with Delia Smith (who?)!
      The food is so good.
      Dad says you and Simon are visiting over the next few days, so I look forward to seeing you.

      1. Hi Tom, happy birthday hope you have a very good one. I do hope to come see you soon . Been along time I am sorry. Hope your well and still eating well 😊 have a good one πŸ‘

  1. Happy Birthday Tom! How old are you this year matey? Love the London Picture, although I’m a little bias as I’m a Londoner myself! Hope you have a great day and enjoy your Curry later. The Merchants of Spice is really good might see you there one of these days. Take it easy Tom. Cheers Vince.

    1. I was born in 1997 Vince, and I love the London picture. Dad tells me he is going to take me for a ‘pie and mash’ meal one day in the east end, but we have since found a lovely pub at London Bridge that we have started to visit!
      Dad said you drifited into enemy territory and visited Merchants 1 in Colegate and not Merchants 2 on Yarmouth Road. My friend Nish was not impressed!
