It’s my birthday today
I’m older than yesterday
All my friends are coming over to play
And they’ll all sing Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday by Justine Clarke
Yesterday I said goodbye to my thirties and say hello to my forties. 10 years ago, my thirtieth birthday was spent with a quiet dinner with Mr BG and my family, and it will be pretty much the same- there will be a few more faces around the table including my sister’s partner, the little BGs and my lttle nephew. I will also be wearing the same dress I wore to my 30th birthday shindig- I had to have it altered as I have lost a bit of weight, which is always nice.
I’m going to miss my 30s, which I enjoyed immensely with marriage, two trips overseas, two houses bought, one house sold, numerous moves (both house and work) and two great children. I also got fitter, got crafty, got to meet some great people online through Twitter and Facebook and started my blog.
I’m also looking forward to what the future brings as a fit and fabulous 40 year old (though that is going to take a while to get used to that number!). Part of me prefers not to look at the number, as it doesn’t really reflect how old I feel. The day is a good time to reflect upon the year that has passed and to figure out how much cake I can eat today as birthday calories don’t really count 🙂
