DESPITE all the celebrations, it's actually two weeks until my birthday.

I will celebrate the occasion then with a private function for friends and family.

I have a few friends from school who are also celebrating the big 4-0 so we will ring it in together with a nice gathering at the end of the month.

I am no good when it comes to receiving presents for my birthday as I never know what I want.

Some of the best gifts I have got in recent times are things like a CD with really good music made by somebody.

People ask me how it feels turning 40, but I don't feel any different.

I have already achieved so much in my life and my career so the prospect just excites me and I am intrigued to find out what the future holds.

When it comes to my career, I plan on retiring and scaling down everything in my early 60s.

I really can't see me doing it as long as Gay (Byrne).

Neither would I have the inclination nor interest in doing the same job for that long. I'd go bonkers.

It will be a late night tonight after presenting the Late Late so I am going to relax after all the stress and excitement.

It has been a crazy week, but a great week so it is time to sit back and reflect.
