Among a lot of other people, today I share my birthday with Hugh Jackman! (I've started to appreciate this man more and more after devouring the box set of the X-Men.)
Happy birthday, Hugh!
All the coolest people have their birthday on the 12th October!
Today is the 20th anniversary of my 21st birthday! Whoop! (So much better looking at it that way!)
If you have kids, I think your birthdays are just as much for them. I've bought a huge cupcake of a birthday cake out of Sainsburys. I will adorn it with candles - not all 41, that's just asking for trouble - and let the kids blow out the candles for me.
I'm planning on a lazy day, with hopefully a few presents to open, because even at my age, I still like presents. Then we will be off to a Hungry Horse for tea - because I certainly am not cooking.
I'm sure there will be wine consumed in the evening, too.
