38!

I turned 38 yesterday. That’s awfully close to 40 y’know. Makes you think, huh?

Didn’t do much on the day. Went to the osteopath to sort my ankle out (got to try out my new sat nav), had to go to the launderette – boo! :(, and went to see the film Chronicle at the cinema (which was about as enjoyable as going to the launderette). Seriously, don’t do it!

Instead, let’s look at what I ate.

kiki's birthday breakfast

Treated (can you say ‘tret’?) myself to a birthday fry up as I haven’t had one in ages. It was most satisfying.

kiki's birthday pie

Then after the movie had some pear and apple pie and cream. Not brilliant but still, not diabolical either.

As for everything else, here’s the tally.

3 presents – a CD, a book, and said Sat Nav (which I bought myself with a parental contribution)

7 cards

2 phone calls

2 e-mails

4 texts

6 well wishers online

A reasonable haul for an average birthday I reckon (there’s nothing special about turning 38, except I’m now very firmly in my late thirties!). Next year I hope to go see the northern lights on the day, then the year after it’s the big one! I might do what I did for my 30th, rent out a cinema and have a screening of something. Last time I played Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. This time I dunno… Dude, Where’s My Car? maybe. You’ve got to love the classics, don’t ya! 😉
