After many years of friendship, and a level of intimacy that has at times included a really alarming familiarity with the bowel habits of each other's children, I was thinking I knew you pretty well. And yet you always have the capacity to surprise, because who else would have thought that the best way to spend New Year's Eve in the mountains was giving ourselves facials, and would have packed the necessary products for all skin types?

Life would be much less tasty without your enthusiasms, your occasional rages, your expert opinions and your great friendship. Happy Birthday to you, and many many more.

Love, Catherine

(Oh, and now that you're 40? Step up the exfoliant.)
