I just received an email from my best friend in the UK:
I can't wrap this up any other way, so here it is in an email.
Your combined Christmas and 40th birthday present is your flight to the UK.
Happy birthday and Christmas!
So you'll need to get me dates so I can book, or I can transfer the money to you.
It’s a very green gift because no trees died to make wrapping paper to wrap it. :-)
I’m just so stunned I just had to tell someone!
