Many bottles of sparkling wine and lots of tapas. Sticky date pudding with toffee sauce. Quite a few vintage dresses.
Speeches, and my sister had made a song.
New green dress, a birthday gift!
I cried a few times. Like when my friend the restaurant manager invited me for a meal, with her babysitting.
I got flowers. And present cards to go wild. I'll get something just for me. I never do that.
I feel 40 will be fine. Like nicer wine: A little bit better.
