All these poor sods and I have something in common! We all turn or have turned the big 4-0 this year. Mines is but a month away today and to say I'm crapping myself is an understatement. Why? Well birthdays as you get older, don't retain their ability to dazzle like they do when you are young! I don’t feel that old. People tell me I don’t look that old. But there isn't the same spark of excitement that I felt when I turned 5, 13 or 21, I wonder why…? Also at the tender age of 13, I thought anyone older than 30 was passed it. Funny how my outlook has changed for that statement. I didn't feel any different when I moved from my 20's into my 30's, so hopefully I won't feel any pain when I move into my 40's. As my mum said to me today, you're still my little girl and I replied "Do you know something mum? I still feel 5" and then there's my other half who constantly tells me to grow up.
Somehow I don't think I ever will!
