It's today! I'm 60!
Lots of cards and presents. And e-mails and texts and Facebook greeting. As well as the 22-day cruise I had to the Far East and my holiday in England and my forthcoming trips to Paris and Spain.
Do I get a pension? Well, not yet. Bus pass? Not sure. Free prescriptions and eye tests from now on.
Day spent reading Paris guidebooks. No study or essay writing - no housework or cooking - can't remember the last time I had a day off from everything.
My 'Practical Phonetics and Phonology' textbook arrived yesterday. I need to have at least browsed it before I go to my first day at University.
Eat out at good restaurant tonight. What to wear?
