So, here’s the deal:
Yesterday, I Turned Forty.
Perhaps if I say it often enough it will seem real? It’s not that I have a problem with it. I don’t at all. I am very happy with where my life is at. Of course, there are things that, if being totally honest, I would like to change. But these are all things beyond my control. And so I don’t let those things bother me. It still feels a bit weird to be 40 though. It’s an age that seemed positively ancient when you are a child. And yet when you reach it, you still feel a bit of a child yourself. But without a lot of the insecurities of childhood (especially teenager-hood!). One of the great benefits of aging!
I had a great day! My mum came to visit for a few days and husby took the day off work. The day started with baby snuggles and a gift, then a sleep-in (until 9am! unheard of!). After breakfast and shower etc, I had a pedicure and got sushi for lunch, followed by fancy cupcakes.
And then a trip to the Zoo! It was a warm day but our Zoo is in the perfect location for cooling sea breezes, so it was lovely. And not nearly as busy as going on a weekend. The perfect birthday expedition.
And finally dinner out with husby while Nanna looked after the little fella. A local restaurant, which meant we could (a) walk and (b) drink a bottle of champagne between us. Weeeeeeeeeee!
A perfect end to a great day!
I leave you with a sneak peek of my super special birthday suit – not a suit as such (and no, not no suit at all, heh!). A little project I have made with some special yarn (my very first wollmeise!).
I shall reveal all later this month!
