I was lucky to have my big 40th birthday last year, I still have the cards up funny enough. I know others who had their 40th birthday in doors.
But one year later under Covid19 lockdown, I’m considering my options. My partner suggested a mass video call which I could cast to my TV. I could buy one of those going cheap cakes or get a nice takeaway from somewhere special. Also been thinking about ordering a very nice steak from the northern quarter butchers and having that with some lovely eggs. Talking of the northern quarter, I would pay some serious money to sit in a coffee shop right now. I’m not the only one…
What I’d give for the fundamental civilizing act of going to the cafe and doing nothing for three hours watching the world go by sipping a good coffee

Talking of coffee, I finally caved in and started having coffee at home after a nice Airbnb left me a bag a while back. Just in the mornings before work.
Incredible parting gifts from my lovely Airbnb guest.
Lovely coffee… and it smells great!#poemsAsFriends pic.twitter.com/Q5d149noih

And the last leap Airbnb, made me a superhost again?!
So weird, because no one is going anywhere right now. I don’t think I could accept anyone if they did actually book my spare room anyway. Maybe I should block out my calendar but theres little point right now.
Anyway back to the point, what to do on my birthday in lockdown.
I’m open to suggestions…?
