Edit - I just got to work and my gorgeous workmates got me pressies! My girlfriend - formerly known as Ms Moneypenny - got me a beautiful ceramic picture frame and some wrinkle cream (yes..I think it's a hint). Mowgli, Lara Croft, Spiffo and the rest got me.....2 DVD Star Trek Boxed sets!! The Time Travel Fan Collection and the BORG Fan Collection. Yippee! More stuff to watch on the treadmill!

Well I'm 44 today and I hope I'm at least some of those things.
Having a pretty quiet day today. Kids got me a cd (Muse's album) and a lovely card (won't talk about the huge fight they had last night about who should write the card and wrap it). I also got a beautiful ring in the mail just now from my buddy Samantha.
My friend the lovely Little Lulu and I have birthdays a week apart so we usually have a joint celebration. This year it's her choice so we are going to a Jazz Club on Friday night. Not really into Jazz myself but it's the company that will make it fun. A great bunch of people coming, including my mates Lara Croft, Mowgli and Spiffo so should be hilarious as usual.
Then, to mum's for birthday lunch on Saturday (and yes, it will involve carbs!).
So.....I sat back and thought about how far I've come since this time last year and I think I'm ok with where I'm at right now.
Last year I was 10kg heavier. I was also at a real low as far as health goes. I actually had an exam on my birthday and was extremely stressed from studying 3 units that semester and felt as though I was going to totally lose the plot. (I did start semester 2 but withdrew in August.)
It was June last year that I decided I really needed to do something about my health and fitness and signed up with Ideal Bodies Online in July, which is what has ultimately been a huge turning point for me and the ripple effect has enriched my life immensely.
Fellow bloggies who started their IBO program with me were Kerry, Rach and Tracey. We didn't have blogs back then but it was through their friendship and encouragement that I started blogging and now I can't imagine my day without it. I love the friendships I have made. Even though only in cyberspace now, I hope one day to catch up with some of you in the flesh.
I'm crapping on a bit but the gist of it is that my life is a lot better now than it was this time last year, and hopefully it will be even better next year.
Oh and another thing. Last year I hadn't had sex since 5 February, 2005 between 10pm and 10.05pm. He he....this year I had my 'sex clock' set back to zero..and that's also a good thing ;o)
