Yay well done me for being born 27 years ago. In celebration, I’m being taken to a lovely hotel in the countryside by The Musician, The Book Accumulator and Mini-Me for the day and evening, including much delicious food. Am very excited.

I went to a very fancy dinner at Lord’s on Friday night for people who played cricket at MCC Universities or MCC Young Cricketers – having played cricket for Oxford Uni when I was there, I met the criteria. 5 of us ex-Oxford or Cambridge types went and had a lovely time. We’ll gloss over the speech out of the 1970s and focus on the brilliant Q&A session with Andrew Strauss. I do like an international cricketer who can give a carefully considered answer to a question. And isn’t the special branded water bottle great?
Mini-Me came to stay last weekend and we cooked a lot and went to see Dance Til Dawn (no plot, good dancing) and watched movies (Beautiful Creatures, which it turned out I had actually watched all of before and totally forgotten, but it’s an excellent film! and Hercules). Much sister fun.
I have 19 days left at work before going on maternity leave. That’s a slightly frightening statistic.
I have caught up on all of season 4 of White Collar and am now in withdrawal until I find season 5. See also Suits, Forever, Perception, The Newsroom and assorted other police procedurals.
