It was my partner Chris's birthday on August 30th, and as he turned 55 I keep reminding him that he's now officially closer to 60 than 50 – he's not amused! Although he was very amused with the birthday card I got him. On the front it said 'Old is when' and inside it had things like 'getting lucky means you find your car in the car park' and 'you're cautioned to slow down by your doctor instead of the police'!
Which reminds me, as well as the sat nav and Birkenstock sandals I got him from QVC, we all clubbed together and bought him a Formula One Experience Day at Brands Hatch. He was very surprised (and I think quite pleased), but he did make some comment about beating the record for the slowest time round the track, and was wondering if the sat nav would come in handy to make it to the finish line!
Have you ever had an 'experience day' as a birthday present? And if so, what did you do on your special day?
