Birthday Suit

There I was rummaging through one of my notebooks last night when I reread the origin of the term "birthday suit". It didn't start out as meaning to be completely naked.

We're off to nose around Kent for the day. There will be the partaking of cake and bubbles and still a celebratory birthday plan to look forwards to this weekend.
