Tip top birthday. We’ve just come back from a great feed at The Cattlemen’s Association steak house. Rib eye to die for (well – not really, but it was stunning, as per usual from there). I was blessed with the company of close family. We all had good chinwags and yarns.
I’ve had some supermo gifts – a bluetooth speaker – a sound bar type thing that packs a real punch yet sounds awesome. A sound way bigger than it’s 30cm oversized pencil case dimension belies. I’ve had some books and beer, chocolate and jumpers and an amazing vintage 35mm Olympus OM10 camera in mint condition – complete with a 1.8 prime 50 and a 28 – 70 zoom. It even came with a case and some film. I can’t wait to do some shooting with that.
Just about to settle down and watch an episode of the TV show ‘Breaking Bad’ that we’ve just got into, 5 seasons after everyone else. So far, it’s great. Top drama, gripping and utterly entertaining.
Tonight has been the first night out of 4 on the bounce for me. The tamest (tonight – steady meal out with family) to the untamest (full on party on Saturday) I imagine. Tomorrow night I’m going out with my new colleagues for a meal and perhaps a drink or two. Friday, I’m DJing (could go either way) up to Saturday. Pace myself. I’m getting on a bit now you see.
