Birthday weekend

So it's official, I've now entered my fourth decade of life. I've managed to successfully navigate 30 years without too much turbulence along the way. The question is, what do I do now? You see, I think I may be having a slightly early mid-life crisis... well, perhaps crisis is a bit too strong, but I've been having thoughts recently about what I'm doing with my life.

It's not that I'm unhappy in any way, that couldn't be further from the truth. However, everything is just a bit too comfortable at the moment and I could do with giving myself a kick up the arse. I'm just drifting along a bit right now, anyway, I don't want to go any deeper into this just now. I'll take a few days to think things through and see what I come up with. Perhaps I just need a new hobby, or perhaps just a holiday, I've not had one of those for about five years!

I decided that as it was a significant birthday and as it fell on a bank holiday weekend. I should declare the whole weekend as my birthday instead of just restricting myself to one day. It worked rather well and would highly recommend it to others. Friday night was curry night with friends, that was great and I didn't get home to bed until 5am. The Saturday was dedicated to doing family things and I went out for a meal with them to celebrate. The Sunday which was my actual birthday I had to work all day, but that was fine, it turned out to be quite an easy day and we finished early. So that just left today, which I was working.... again! This time though my colleagues had bought me a lovely birthday cake and again we were able to finish early.

I'm now sitting at home wondering how to round off my birthday weekend, and I can't think of any way to do it. I'm pretty tired now though so I'm thinking perhaps a hot drink, curl up in front of the telly and watch something like the new series of Battlestar Galactica that I haven't had time to start yet. After all, I'm getting old now I have to start taking things easy!
