I'm back and I'm 40!! I had a lovely sunny week in West Wales with family and friends which was great. Sadly my auntie died on my birthday which although not unexpected was still a shock so I didn't feel much like celebrating after that. I received some gorgeous presents from everyone though which I'll blog about when I get round to downloading the photos. My party was at the week-end. It was lovely to see everyone but having a party is way too stressful. I spent the whole time worrying about whether everyone else was having a good time. I much prefer going to other peoples parties. It was a joint party with my friend Paul and he had been stuck in Belgium because of the volcanic ash thing so he literally arrived half an hour before the party began after a getting a last minute ticket on the eurostar. Thats us below. Its at the end of the party so we are both looking slightly drunk!
These are my lovely friends Kate and Debi - at this point in the party we thought we could dance. It was not pretty!
Talking of volcanic ash Jon's dad is actually stuck in Katmandu after a months treking holiday in Nepal and he has no idea when he might be able to get home. It must be a horrible situation to be in.
I'm actually really scared tonight as I start my new job tomorrow. I'm terrified - not about the job but about the drive there. Seriously I feel sick thinking about it so wish me luck. Tomorrow I am going to have to pretend I can string a sentence together and that I actually have a brain. Its going to be a struggle!!
