Or so they say. If that is the case, things are really kicking off for B today! It’s been exciting for him so far. I know he appreciated me bellowing ‘Welcome to your forties!’ as he opened his eyes at 6am.

I don’t think B minds reaching this milestone. As I’ve helpfully pointed out, it’s the least of his concerns. He doesn’t need to worry about looking old either. Just a few months ago he was asked for ID at Tesco when buying wine, which begs the question – who do the staff think I am? His mother?
The coming days will involve fancy birthday dinners, lunches and events around this great city of ours. I will be baking a cake. I considered making novelty brain cupcakes but I’m not sure they would have been appreciated…
