I am 30
Can't believe it but still feel young. Well I have to with a 25 year old wife!!!
Well the day has finally arrived for Jimmy boy to enter the thirties but all is ok because 30 is now the new 20. Well that's what James reckons anyway.
The weekend began with a great Christmas dinner with friends on saturday night which included a 3 course meal and a rather large roast. It is not often we get to eat a lovely roast over here so this night was rather special.
Then the main event, Sunday the 4th of December and yes I am an old fella now. Had a full on day on Sunday but it was amazing. Had all the calls from the family first thing and then it was off to our local café for brunch where Anna had arranged for all my friends to meet us. Great to have so many cool people around and certainly made for a nice morning. My girl had kept the surprise from me for weeks so she did good.
It was then off to the Royal Albert Hall to watch the masters tennis final. Really enjoyable few hours in a beautiful venue. I even think I saw Anna getting excited about watching sport so hopefully she
I have seen some great christmas outfits but this takes the cake.
is coming round to enjoying sport. Somehow I don't think so though. We then went back to the Hilton on Park Lane which was just up the road and enjoyed a beautiful cocktail on the 28th floor looking out over London and Hyde Park. Really nice way to finish what had been a great day. Anna also managed to get tickets for us to go up to Liverpool next week and see them play. Always been a boyhood dream to watch Liverpool at Anfield so that was another great surprise. Tickets are so hard to get hold of so I am still amazed she managed to get them. I guess she just used her charm on the phone. You know what she is like.
All in all a great day and weekend and as always was spoilt rotten with many gifts. Thanks must go to my beautiful wife for all the organising and the amazing surprises and gifts and of course to the rest of the family and friends who made this day a really cool one..
