I share my birthday with many people including Princess Anne, Ben Affleck, Oscar Peterson and Napoloeon Bonaparte but, best of all, with my friends' lovely daughter Dorothy.
This year she turned six and I began another in my prime and we spent the afternoon with Dot's parents at London Zoo (ZSL).
What a great day – giraffes, reptiles, penguins, lemurs, gorillas, pigmy hippos, hunting dogs and more.
I always thought Peter Gabriel sang "Dotty plays with Jane". But having just checked, it's Lotte.
The song then goes on to say that Jane played with someone else and is happy again. Fnar.
