Nine of us went over in total and had a good time, although you can tell that we?re all getting a little older, and not drinking as much or being as impulsive, but I guess part of that is that we?ve been to Calais quite a few times, although this time we did venture futher past the town square and further into town.
As opposed to previous years, the ice-skating rink wasn?t up yet this year, and I had to settle for going on a big-wheel which wasn?t as fun, but I did have my first French kebab!
We got back to Ramsgate around 10:30 and I had a curry, and then I was back home at 11:45pm. I could?ve stayed out a bit longer, but just didn?t feel like it.
I was going to have football today, but I got a great Birthday present when my manager rang me at 8:30 am to tell me that the game had been cancelled after excessive rain. woo hoo! And so I got to lie in until 10am, which is a good sleep for me.
I have spent my actual Birthday today just lounging around, enjoying a day off, although I did get around to kicking off the fermentation of my home brew beer, and at 8pm I?m off to the pub for a few beers although I don?t think many will be out as they are recovering from yesterday.
Thanks for your birthday wishes too.
P.S. I?ve uploaded photos from yesterday.
