I'm having a total freak out !
My on line calendar does not appear to be reminding me in time for birthdays ! I have gone through them all and checked they are on the relevant "email X days before" which should help and if the person hadn't come into work yesterday (he is a customer and friend) and mentioned it was his 60th at the end of the week I would have totally missed his birthday.
I am really tempted to go back to putting things in my desk diary - I thought the electronic repeating every year would be great but honestly I live in fear of missing people's birthdays!
I think this is card No. 6 since my pledge not to buy any (although I did have to buy one whilst on holiday - a sympathy one which wouldn't wait).
