It's been a bit of a week, what with the snow and whatnot. I can't quite grasp the concept of being forty(!!). It's not really possible for me to be that old, so I can't get upset about it - even if work made every effort they could to remind me of it.
Everyone in RL has been far more excited about it than myself, as my main concern was what would be the first song I would hear in my fourth decade (Candyman by Siouxsie and the Banshees in the end). Still I went out to lunch with work and my friend cooked me a dinner (last Saturday), plus my mum organised a buffet on Sunday (that I had to cook in the end) with a big cake.
I also got my desk decorated:
I got an eclectic range of presents:
A new laptop! (which I've had two months)
£60 from the girls at work
2 CDs and a DVD
Some fruity smellies
A mug and coaster celebrating the occasion (as if)
One of those jumbo pens that writes in different colours.
A bottle of Amaretto and a losing scratchcard :(
Some bubbles to blow (the cat is delighted)
