I told my teacher when I got to school, I was born in 1937.
That makes me feel very old.

I know someone who got married on that date just because it wouldn’t be forgotten.

It was a nice day in our neck of the woods baubles. I remember because my neighbour moved the week before and the weather was dreadful. Their mattresses got a thorough soaking.

My late son had a birthday on 7.7.77

Greenfinch Tue 08-Feb-22 19:29:33

So did my cousin’s eldest daughter Aldom. Nice and easy to remember. An elderly friend soon to be 87 is looking forward to her birthday on 22.2.22.
