disbelief...

Utter disbelief...that I am forty today...born this day way back in 1969...I do not actually have a problem with turning 40 as that is the age I am...can't do anything about it...but on one hand it sounds so old...I mean when you are 20 it is positively ancient...but it doesn't feel old...and I really do not feel that much different to when I was 30...though my life has changed hugely since then...and my friends kindly say I do not look that old...lol...although I do have days when I feel that old...lol...

Anyway I have nice things planned...it started with breakfast with my girlfriends...most of all my closest friends were able to come and they spoiled me rotten...beautiful jewellery including a Pandora bracelet and some delicious pampering things and some lovely decorative pieces to add to my studio...the company of good friends is a precious thing......
But best of all was this...when I got home from breakfast Ben and the girls had made and all signed a card for me...look Ben even used the sewing machine...lol...made with love...very precious...Oh and I got a VERY nice ring from Ben...I chose it but he still had to say yes and cough up the money! And then tonight I celebrate with my family...Lissy
