Happy belated birthday. I’m sorry that I’m getting this to you a day late. I’ve been
very a bit distracted lately, but that is hardly an excuse. Especially since you’ve never missed a birthday of mine.
I hope this goes a bit of the way towards making it up to you and that your day was lovely.
Lots of love,

This has cheered me up no end. It might actually be better a day later because on my birthday I was
a mess distracted. So don’t feel bad about it! You’re a darling.
