Last night was excellent. I'm not sure I want to do that again, though (although I probably say the same thing every year) t-oo much stress over who's going to turn up, the restaurant giving me grief, a certain feeling of guilt about making my friends spend money in order to share time with me on my birthday. It all went well, though; it didn't rain, I didn't get the massive last minute all-cancellations I was kind of fearing -or rather, I did but I did get enough numbers. Didn't get a chance to catch up properly with every one but that's just what happens in a gathering like that.
Thanks to all who came and to those who sent messages, etc:)
