Surprise!...
After much planning, many phone calls, e-mails and texts the lovely Roberto managed to pull off a surprise 40th birthday party for David in a little bar in Stockwell called The Far Side Bar last night. He'd done a really good job keeping it quiet from David and had even gone to the trouble of getting a cake. Although the word cake barely did it justice. It was a wonderful, creamy gateau. The whole gang was there to shower David with gifts and attention including David, Jason, Matthew, Richard, Andy, Kevin, Darren, Rachel, Chris, Michael, Guy, Pano, Johnny, Marcus, Luca and I. The only person missing was David's best friend, Ian, who sadly had to work. I think David enjoyed himself though. He didn't stop smiling from the moment he arrived so that should have been some sort of clue, I guess! Welcome to middle-age, David!
