Thanks you lot.

It's been a good day so far. In order to explain why let me first tell you a little story. I'll try to keep it brief.

It would appear that being in my late 30s does not exclude me from having to write a birthday list, so a few weeks ago my wife asked me to compile one for her. I was going to ask for money towards a Playstation 4, however I figured that would still leave me quite short of the ~£400 I would need. Instead I opted for a more traditional list, complete with some clothes, smellies, vouchers and all the usual gubbins.

Top of the list, though, was Battlefield 4 on the PS3. It was the one thing I really wanted. The rest I had to think about, but BF4 was on the list before I had even realised I was writing it. Anyway, the email was sent out and I crossed my fingers.

As the BF4 release date approached so more and more content started appearing about it on the internet. Trailers, gameplay, and even a live video of a battle between Europe and America (which I watched rather than helping my wife bath the kids). My anticipation was mounting.

Imagine my disappointment when my missus, on the release day of Battlefield 4, told me that I wasn't getting the game for my birthday (which was still a few days away at this point). "What's the point of doing a birthday list?" I asked, and immediately set about planning which games I would trade in to muster up the money towards getting a copy.

Two days later we were in Exeter for a curry with my parents and my brother, his wife and their new child. As we were having our compulsory 'cup of tea' I was handed my presents from them. Now given that my birthday is still a few days away at this point I find myself in that awkward position of Do I Open Them Now Or Wait? I figure it would be more polite to open them there and then, so that's what I do. The first one felt like a blu-ray, and so I begin to wonder if it's The Hobbit or perhaps a Pixar movie. Upon opening it, though, I start to see that it's a PS3 game. Yeah baby... Battlefield 4 it is. My birthday is now complete.

Skip forward to today and I am awoken at 7am by my two sons shoving birthday cards in my face. "Happy birthday, Daddy!!" they shout as I unpick the birthday card from my nose. My wife then gets her handbag, retrieves a piece of paper from it and informs me that it's a bit of a weird birthday present I am getting this year. She then proceeds to read a series of 21 questions to me, each answer being attributable to a letter of the alphabet. So by the end of the little quiz I am left with the following letters, and am told they should spell my what my birthday present is... in French.

Four words apparently. I didn't have a clue either. So with a lot of help we get to 'champ de bataille quatre'.

"Battlefield 4!" I exclaim, smiling. "Oh no, that's what Rich got me".

"Yes" says the wife, "but not on the Playstation 4".

Congrats.

But considering we share the same late 30s birthday age, I shall be asking questions tonight about why I wasn't asked for a list. I'm glad I didn't get the French test though, I'd have failed miserably. Smile
