First of all thanks to everyone that came to my birthday party last Saturday. It was fantastic to see so many people, some of whom I hadn't seen for far too long. It was an excellent evening. Oh, and special thanks to those who helped tidy up the next day. Many people have already put up photos and I will put up the few I have at some point soon-ish. Thank you also for all the cards and presents.

One of my birthday presents was from the [livejournal.com profile] thekumquat and is a weekend away with her in a fancy hotel. We are heading off there tonight and I'm really looking forward to it. Unfortunately this means that we won't see people in the pub tonight or at the ungoth party tomorrow. I hope you have much fun and we will see many of you next week.

Last night was my fencing clubs annual one hit epee competition. This is where we fence using the same rules as pentathlon fencing tournaments with each bout being decided on a single hit (also known as sudden death) and everyone gets to fence everyone else. It tends to be a lot most about not letting nerves get the better of you than the normal 15 point matches so maybe being half asleep helped. Anyway, much to my surprise, I won after winning 9 out of 10 bouts. So I now have a (fairly small) trophy in what I think is lacquered bronze which will have my name engraved on it. I usually fence in team events so this is the first individual competition I have ever won.
