Well it’s my birthday today, and I’ve reached the big 4-0 ……. I’ve been dreading this day, partly because I don’t feel nearly old enough to be forty, mianly ebcause my darling son keeps telling me that 40 is “nearly dead”! Anyway, the day has come and really, it’s no different to 39 is it ..!
Had a lovely day so far. Breakfast in bed courtesy of the kids (well, courtesy of Katie actually, but Dan took some credit despite only being awake 10 seconds before they knocked on my door!), then out for coffee that turned into champagne with a couple of friends. Now awaiting the arrival of my mum and boyfriend and we’re off to the Folly, my local, for a pint then down to a great Thai restaurant in town. I’m also having a big birthday bash at the weekend, complete with curry!
And isn’t social media fab? I’ve had umpteen birthday wishes today on Facebook and Twitter, from family, old school friends, networking acquaintances, clients, suppliers and friends. Lovely to feel so loved!
So there you have it … I am officially a grown up. Doubt it’ll change much though …. though this could be a decade of rebellion, watch this space!
