40 today...

My first job as a 40 year old involved a wee pair of Ben 10 boy pants, a hairdrier and a lot of patience. It got better from then on with breakfast at Kember & Jones with my friend Shona, a massage courtesy of my sis and then lunch with her and friends. I've rushed home to change to go for dinner with the family and then to the first party of the weekend...this 40 lark isn't quite as bad as some people make out.....

Can't believe it's been Monday since I was last on and no recipes too. I shall make it up soon. But at least the house is clean. As for the garden.....*shiver*.

Happy Birthday. Sounds like lots of fun. I have been a bad little blog commenter lately but wanted to make sure that I wished you well on your big day :)

The big day! Celebrating is more important than blogging by far so don't mind us.

Happy Birthday!!! 40 is perfectly groovy! I'm a couple years older than you. I think each new decade is better than the last one. :)
