We then had a lovely lunch at my brothers, complete with cake that my father had made, and played the Railroad Tycoon board game for a couple of hours (I got beaten into second place by one point by Hugh), and then went off to see a comedy show at the Fringe. I was a bit worried, as I'd chosen the show - which was tricky, as comedy tends to be late-night, and Hugh/Meredith can't get a babysitter that late.
So, anyway, I'd ended up booking an early evening one with no idea if they were worth seeing, and was grateful when they turned out to be quite good. Not amazingly funny, but of the three of them, one was very good, one was pretty good, and only one of them was a bit rubbish.
And then we went back to Hugh's for more nice home cooking, a few glasses of wine (for other people, as I don't drink wine), and chatting, before staggering home at half ten, feeling utterly exhausted.
All in all a lovely birthday.
