Yesterday assorted lovely people came round for cocktails in black tie to celebrate my advancing age. There are photos! If anyone wants to offer fix the redeye on the two of me I would be v grateful (full-size version is available). Pete & Marna made very very nice food indeed, there was quite a lot of champagne (some in cocktail form) and cocktails, and much entertaining conversation. Everyone looked absolutely splendid; possibly because everyone is absolutely splendid. Awesomeness.

Today there has been tidying-up, and the discovery that the toilet (the ballcock valve broke last night) is not fixable & we are probably going to have to get a new one put in. For the moment we have an exciting new overflow-based water feature outside the front door.

So far I like being 30. Despite plumbing crisis.

ETA: Plumbing crisis temporarily fixed by inserting a pin in the very small valve hole from which the water emerges. Truly I am v butch. We will have to use the watering can for flushing purposes until an actual professional arrives. (I am a bit worried that the water pressure will suddenly expel the pin at high speed but I suppose it'll be no worse than the current situation.)

Thank you all for birthday wishes!

Have spent the afternoon reading, knitting, watching Torchwood, and sticking stickers on my map-of-bike-insanity. The reading in particular was v satisfying - I sit down and read far too rarely these days.
