Thank you all for your birthday greetings!
Mike, I may be older but the 'wiser' bit is debatable and I'd prabably be better leaving others to judge.
Belinda, that's wonderful, thank you! The non-fattening pain-au-chocolat is a wonderful invention and it tastes great so I'm sure you'll do very well with it.
Best present today is the fact that we finished decorating and laying a new carpet in my office/music room/den yesterday evening and got the furniture and a new desk in. I'm still waiting for some new shelving units to arrive from IKEA and have yet to get my guitars back on the walls but we're nearly there at last. I'd better get a pic done and post it in the forum (we have a thread for that somewhere, I believe) before it becomes too much of a mess. Oh no, that's a thing of the past, I'll be organised now
