It was my birthday yesterday. I don't usually make a very big deal about it, but it's always nice to celebrate with a few people and get a gift or two. Catherine made an excellent birthday cake substitute: peanut butter cupcakes with chocolate frosting and bits of peanut brittle on top. I took some to work on Friday and they were a huge hit. On Friday night we went out for dinner at one of our favorite special-occasion places, Sociale. We had a great meal as usual.
On Saturday we had a rare warm sunny day, so after doing a few chores in the morning we went for a bit of a walk. Later on I had a low-key party at our place with a few friends, some beer and pizza, that was it. Catherine gave me a new wallet, which I really needed, and nine Tintin comics! Since the movie came out last year my childhood interest in them has been re-kindled. Finding time to read them may be difficult, we'll see.
Today being father's day, Catherine decided to get me a father-to-be present: a diaper bag! OK, so it's a stylish hipster dad messenger/diaper bag, and one that I've said I wanted ever since I saw that my friend James had it. But still... 15 weeks to go, and everything is on track as far as anyone can tell. We're getting pretty excited!
