The day before the arrival

Well today is my 37th Birthday.  Last night we had some friends over for a steak dinner and a couple of games of poker.  What the evening turned into was a beer, jaeger bomb and red wine fuelled bonanza and this morning I was feeling a touch worse for wear.

It's all been about 7's today... 37 years old... a Caterham 7 (well that's tomorrow), and there was alot of Caterham 7 prezzies. Here's some of them:
A huge amount of presents - all wrapped in a bespoke Caterham wrapping paper, note the 'Man Bowl'

So all in all it was a great birthday and my hangover has finally gone.  Watched the first episode of the new series of top gear which was pretty dull.  Looking forward to tomorrow - what the day entails I really have no idea, but it still doesn't seem real right now......
