Time has finally caught up with me. I completed my Fortieth year on the planet and my lovely wife organised a surprise night out with a bunch of my old friends who came from as far away as Aberdeenshire to help me celebrate getting over the hill. Of course she managed to keep it secret till the evening so that I spent most of the day thinking I was a really boring and shitty (as in cleaning the toilet, yep she got me to clean the toilet on my birthday!) day. In the evening, however, her duplicitous nature was revealed and we had a a great night drinking and stuffing our faces with Tapas.
The distinct advantage to having a momentous birthday is the upgrade in presents, both number and quality. So I thought I use this post to boast about my Birthday haul.
|The haul in most of it's glory|
Talking of 2000ad there is the Hardback Ro-Busters anthology. Lots of chaos from Ro-Jaws and Hammerstein. I'm looking forward to reading this.
All in all, i'm pretty chuffed with my lot. I've got some other stuff that isn't appropriate to discuss here as well some cash and a load of book tokens to spend.
And I invented a new word.
Not bad for a 40 year old.
