Just a quick update, something I've failed to mention in my last couple of posts. Tomorrow is not only my birthday (thank you, thank you...), but also I've had the phone call from the hospital. I have to be there at the crack of dawn tomorrow to finally go under the knife and have the sodding piece of bamboo removed from my arm. I can't wait to have full use of that arm again and finally get on with the rest of my life, but what a birthday present, eh?
So it won't be Champagne at mignight tonight, but fasting and abstinence for a day. Hopefully I'll be ok by evening to have at least a wee celebratory dinner with Susan (her cooking of course, what with my busted arm). So it will be a double celebration! On Friday we'll go to our favourite pub to see Belfast man Andy White play live. That'll be my birthday treat then.
So see you all in a few days time.
