 I had a really lovely Birthday. ^__^.  I went and spent a couple of days with Dad and Liz, and spent most of it sitting in the garden reading my kindle and catching up on the massive list of books that I wanted to read.  On the day itself, Dad took me into town and bought me pretty much everything I need to start work, including a beautiful nurse's watch with an amazing luminous display for use in the dark, as well as more dull stuff like enough socks to last me a month without needing to wash any (bless him- he knows how I operate...)  We also went out for a nice meal in the evening, then sat up late playing cards.  It was an awesome day.

I got some amazing presents, too- a beautiful leather-bound edition of Dracula, a novelty computer mouse shaped like a pixelated hand icon, some kitchenwear in the shade of bright green that I like, a new tiny bonsai tree, and some awesome new headphones.  I have been very lucky, and am very content with turning 31- apart from the fact that it makes me even more of an adult.

In order to rile against this fact, I went out and bought myself a Spiderman toothbrush today.  Just because I could. ^__-.

In Other News:
I start work one week form today.  The coming week will therefore be filled with cleaning, revision, and general panic.  I have my first month's time-table, and as far as I know everything is ok with occupational health and HR (although I will be ringing both next week to confirm it.  Still no word on my PIN from the NMC, though, so I will be chasing up uni on that, too.

Other than that... all is ok.  I'm 99% sure my fussy bonsai has died, but the others are fine (as are my cacti), and the snakes seem happy.  Opal is preparing to shed so she's a bit moody right now, and little Zip has settled in well.  Rambo is looking very thin indeed, and I'll be attempting to feed him tomorrow, so fingers crossed he takes it this time.  I have gotten him a supplement for his water which was recommended by some other owners, and hopefully it will give him some energy.  Apparently it helps put them in the mood to eat, but he too might be in shed so he might refuse because of that.  I am still worried about him, but there isn't much I can do- he has to eat of his own accord, there's no real medication to help with that.  If he doesn't eat soon, though, I will be taking him back to the vet. -__-;  he seems to be his usual self mood-wise, though, which is good, and he's definitely not dehydrated.

Anyway, to end on a more positive note- here is a picture of Little Zip looking adorable in the mini-skull hide I bought him (Opal's old skull hide was huge, and he seems to be happier in this tiny one):
