Haiku: Celebration

never knowing
when you came into this world
we choose your birthday

Eivor is one of eleven animals we adopted over the years whose exact birthday we may never know. With the help of shelter staff an approximate birthday was suggested and we chose 8 April, already a birthday in our family and easy to remember.

It was the first time we celebrated two birthdays under lockdown conditions. We took the day off from phones and internet, managed to cook a special meal and had a magical time.

Wishing you all a beautiful Thursday and may you all stay safe and healthy,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
