Turning 40...

It's a milestone and I think it should be embraced and not run away from...well that's what I'm doing anyway..LOL!! Today I turned 40 in Temple St Hospital with Lucy Lou and the one conclusion I made of the day is how lucky I am. I have the love of a good man and two beautiful and healthy kids who I can celebrate my birthday today...

So thought's on turning 40 -
1. It's only a number
2. Age is a state of mind
3. Despite what I think sometimes...I have lived, I have traveled, I have done something with my 40 years.
4. You're never too old to achieve your goals
5. I'm so lucky with what I have...so very lucky...
6. I can't wait for the next 40 - bring it on I say!



..And this is how I spent the day - after we left the hospital, I had a lovely lunch in my mums with a large bag of cards and pressies to open. Then a bus ride into town to meet himself and we took the girls to see 'High School Musical'. We had box tickets which was a lot of fun for the girls and for me! Then when we got home the neighbours called in with more presents and a surprise delivery of flowers (thanks Marlen!) and they stayed for a little glass of champers to finish it all..Happy day!
