I have to say, being 40 is rather fun. People give you stuff, and are nice to you. Long may it last.
The birthday fairy brought me a lovely shiny Kindle! *bounces* And a leather cover, in almost oxblood-DM red.
Plus some actual books - thanks to the lovely huskyteer for the copy of Howl's Moving Castle! I've heard that it's different/better than the anime, which we all adore. Looking forward to reading that one.
And some cash from K's parents, so the aforementioned oxblood-red DMs are a distinct possiblity.
I bought myself a present too - This t-shirt, which is made of AWESOME and WIN in equal measure.
Right, I'm off to eat cake. mmm, cake.
