This Wednesday (18 March) is my birthday. I won’t say how old I am because it makes me feel ancient! Anyway, I just wanted to say a special thank you to Phil, who is taking me out to lunch (with real ale!) on Thursday. There’s nothing like a long lunch date to make you feel special, even when you are as old as me. Also thanks in advance to all the people who will give me a birthday gift this week – you are all so lovely to remember me on my special day. (Although as someone once said – you may feel special on your birthday but you share it with 14 million other people worldwide!) So I look forward to seeing you all on the bridge this week – my birthday week is always a great one to remember!
