brickbats and bouquets
Due to a variety of factors, most birthdays tend to be more brickbat than bouquet...but so far this one has been rather good. For starters I actually have a huge bouquet, from work no less! Still no news on the offer we made yesterday. Gift opening will commence when I get home from work - this is the first time I've ever had enough self control to wait - I thought opening them this morning would be too rushed and then the surprise and excitement would be over before I had time to enjoy it. TA was not impressed by my decision and kept trying to persuade me to open "just one - go on".
