Birthdays As Good As It Gets? With Bev Turner & Marina Fogle

    • Relationships

Happy Birthday to you…Happy Birthday to you…Happy Birthday dear…yes, that’s right, this week we’re talking about Birthdays!
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, we all have them every single year (unless, of course, you were born on February 29th). In this entertaining episode, Bev and Marina chat about their birthdays in both the distant and more recent past, how much birthdays mean to them, and what's important when it comes to celebrating (or not celebrating) them. Topics of discussion include children’s birthday parties, brilliant and not-so-brilliant birthdays, as well as whether or not it’s ok to forget a friend’s birthday. The ladies both share some amusing anecdotes, not least Bev's story of the year she didn’t get around to throwing a joint birthday party for her girls - who were born in April and May - until December; as for Marina, her 40th birthday party was somewhat overshadowed by her husband who had recently returned from scaling Mount Everest! As you do...
When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, we could all do worse than to bear in mind a quote from Bev’s Dad who has always told her this: “Beverley, it’s how you treat people all year round that matters, not how you treat them on one day.” As we head into 2022, this might just be the best New Year's resolution we can make.
