Growing up is optional

So yesterday I turned the grand old age of 23. Turning 23 is just not a number significance so I didn't even book the day off work. Was a good day though and thank you to everyone who left me birthday messages, it made the day that much more festive.

The evening was a highlight though, with a visit from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad and [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat who brought not only presents (The Fisher King and Baron M√ľnchhausen DVD's and a new game, Blockus) but their set of Dominion which meant [livejournal.com profile] miss_amaranth could finally learn the game! Blockus is an interesting game and really plays to my enjoyment of strategy. The solitaire mode is also very... interesting.

There was also a very brief Skype from the ever wonderful DD to wish me a happy birthday which meant [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad and [livejournal.com profile] cheshcat at least got to hear her and interact, however briefly.

Also, good news in that [livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad said he'd be willing to give 40k a go so I finally have a reason to finish painting my 5 termagants and spend the vouchers I got for Christmas!

All in all, a good evening *smiles*

So the last few days have been busy, amazing and relaxing, in more or less that order.

Good Friday I took the Oxford Tube down to Victoria before catching the Terravision over to Stansted Airport, off to meet the wonderful DD. After over an-hour-and-a-half at arrivals I finally laid eyes on her again after far too long. Looking very upset, it turned out the poor lass had been interrogated by the Border Agency. A very intense cuddle later we made our way to the coach back to London. Incidentally, Terravision are an awesome company and if you ever need to get to/from an airport I can't recommend them enough. The coach was full of Italians, much to DD's delight.

We caught up a little on the bus, mainly about what had happened at the airport. Numerous plans have been formed with how to spend time together, including seeing The Warhorse, a wander around all the tourist spots in London and, of course, a trip around Oxford.

Very sadly, but understandably, she couldn't be tempted back to Oxford for my birthday party. I met up with my beloved [livejournal.com profile] miss_amaranth and [livejournal.com profile] lord_don and got a lift back up to Oxford. The party itself was a success, the Spiceorama despite being under new management as tasty as ever. It was great seeing the rest the clan ([livejournal.com profile] anarchist_nomad, [livejournal.com profile] cheschcat and [livejournal.com profile] bunnypip) as well as a surprise visit from [livejournal.com profile] alexn4561. After the meal, karaoke ensued. Note: Barry White should cover more Bee Gee's.

Sunday was much more sedate, as was Monday.
