    Thank you all very much for your good wishes! [​IMG]

    Apart from spoiling me rotten from Friday evening onwards, Steve also organised a surprise birthday dinner for me inviting all our biking friends (you may recognise a few faces from this parish):

    The food was delicious... [​IMG]

    ... and a lot of thought and effort had gone into my lovely pressies:

    It was a thoroughly enjoyable birthday weekend - a big thank you to everyone who thought of me and especially to my wonderful Possu!

    That made me laugh, Tim, thank you very much!

    Great collection of photos - can't believe it's seven years since we met in the Dolomites in 2006! You haven't changed a bit (unlike others in the picture... :augie)

    Oh no, the memory of the my last encounter with the 'Trappists' is still too fresh in my mind... :nono

    That's very kind of you, Jo, thank you.

    Karin, Jo and Kurt: please leave some space in your holiday calendar: we are planning another Cloggie weekend later this year; similar time as in 2012 probably... :ricky
