The best birthday present

I was sad on Monday. After thirteen years of great fun, I handed over the keys for my much-loved MX-5 to a stranger. It had become uneconomical for me to keep on the road; selling it to an enthusiast was only slightly less painful than seeing it scrapped.

Today - my birthday - I received a die-cast model MX-5. It will sit alongside the keyring that I kept from the car and invoke many happy memories.

(I'm honestly not usually so attached to possessions, but for this one I'll make an exception.)
