Diane, I had already bought my space at HNS London, but to my delighted surprise, they refunded the whole amount to paypal a day after I told them I couldn't attend. HNS is a very class act.


Well that was very nice of them!

So I did a presentation in front of my peers today and I think I blew it. They were kind and said I didnt, but I'm pretty sure I did. :(

Living with a tiny one built in 1950 and only updated with a new light fixture, a new bathroom does sound like a good consolation prize. Very good to hear about the refund - definitely a class act indeed.

That sucks, Divia, but I'm sure you didn't do as badly as you feel. We're always harder on ourselves.

Let's see, I had a mega migraine on my birthday, though by the end of the night I was starting to feel better, but then at 2 something in the morning, I woke with excruciating stomach cramps (ladies know what I mean), so much so I vomited and had other symptoms (oye!). After taking some strong pain pills I could finally go back to sleep around 5ish, and I slept most of the next day. Spent most of that evening with a heating pad on my stomach. So it hasn't been the best introduction to 39!

That sucks. I'm sorry SM. Not fun at all. Did you have plans for your birthday?

Thanks Divia.

The migraine started the on the 22nd, and I was still in pain when I tried to go to bed, so I took some Vicodin, which didn't let me sleep, so I was better in the morning just very tired, but I still went to my bday lunch with mom and Harm and then slept the afternoon.

I do know what you mean. I have a great deal of trouble with that problem myself.

So sorry that your birthday was taken up by unpleasantness. Maybe you should reschedule. I know that probably sounds funny but you could celebrate some other time to make up for it. A cupcake and a new book or something.

Hope you're feeling better now.

I can so sympathise too, it's horrible. Hope you're feeling better now.

I like LH's idea of a belated celebration.
