Also, as those following me on Twitter may have spotted, it's my birthday!

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.

*strokes Kindle*

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.

Happies to Dave.

50 is more fun. 40, we went from work for pizza and to see Toy Story 2 (there was also some kind of pub crawl, but I don't remember that ...) This was fun, but 50 I had a party on a steam train. This was more fun.
Gives you summat to look forward to, eh?

Dave's 50th birthday party will be on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, yes? Book me in. I'll be the OAP at the back.

sounds like a plan. Mark it in your diary for 2021. EB will be 19, so old enough to buy the beers.
