Thanks folks! Glorious day here - and a bank holiday tomorrow. Perfect day for a birthday!
I saw the clock hand tick over at midnight last night and did get the feeling that I had suddenly aged 10 years - but I'm over it now.
Drunk and listening to Yes and the Clash on YouTube.
P.S. I'm getting a compost bin for my birthday - really looking forward to putting all the straw and newspaper from the rabbit hutch into it - along with the egg shells and potato skins I have saved today. This is what it is to be 50 - but it's good.
