Here ensues at least two months of trying to remember how old I am.

It has been a hell of a year. But comparing this time last year to right now, I wouldn't change how and who I am now.

I've made and lost friends along the way, of course, and I'm more OK with what I have left than I thought I would be. My health is better in most ways, my fitness is better and I'm noticably physically stronger. My financial situation is still dire, but slowly improving and less stressful. I have new interests, and renewed love for old ones. I'm happier and calmer, busier, and happy about it.

Special thoughts tonight to people who have made space in their lives for me this year, whether for quick chats or longer escapes, distraction or talking, games and laughter or... well, more games and laughter, I think.

I will definitely be going to bed with a smile on my face tonight. Bring on the next 365 days.

I learnt a little trick years ago. It's August, therefore my age is now "nearly 41", which means next month when I turn 41 my brain has gotten used to it. I can't say I "just turned 40" now, and as of next month I'm "in my forties", which is scary because that's my Dad's age (except it's not, he's 68 now).

It has been good seeing you posting about the cycling and stuff this year, next time you fancy some insanely long route, stop into Brighouse for food, you've nearly gone past us a couple times (I think)

Happy birthday! That looks like a really positive, excellent response to being a year older. Glad you're in this space.
