Happy birthday to me! This birthday is a little different from last year’s (scroll down), not just because I’m turning 25 instead of 24.
The job’s still great – and they got me cake! Not as many balloons as last year, admittedly, but I have various celebrations planned this year. It’s wonderful to be celebrating my birthday like a normal person (not that I didn’t appreciate enormously last year’s effort).
Mariacristina even took me out to lunch at the 28th-floor restaurant at the Park Lane Hilton, which was fantastic. Gorgeous food, wonderful location, beautiful company…
Other brilliant recent news is that my bone marrow biopsy (which was the first I’d had for ages) showed no sign of residual disease, so I officially don’t have any trace of leukaemia in me at the moment. It’s quite possibly that’s been the case for a while, and even if I did, it wouldn’t be terrible, but it’s still of course lovely to know the bone marrow’s clear.
Roll on the next 25 years!
