Celebrate good times, come on

Today is my fortieth birthday and I am enjoying a day with the family followed by a party at a local hostelry with friends new and old. My wife hasn't told me who is coming, so I am looking forward to seeing who she has invited. I do know some Cambridge friends are coming so I am very excited! But I must say, the prospect of a day with the family is the most exciting thing.... The children are high as kites, and seem to be enjoying daddy's birthday as much as me...I know they are looking forward to playing with the scalectrix I got as much as I am!

So I doubt I will write much more today.

Two things that have struck me, one is that this social networking business can really make you feel special, the number of birthday wishes I have received is quite overwhelming. Secondly, if a person is judged by the quality of their friends, then I must be pretty incredible :-)

Enjoy your weekend!
