…I turn 43! Crumbs! How DID that happen? I still feel 21 and act like it most of the time, much to the chagrin of my children. When I look back life so far has been kind to me, though I often wonder what roles fate, destiny or pure luck have played. When I was 21 I never imagined I’d be an American citizen living in Atlanta, or that I would end up working in magazine publishing of all things, never mind working with my Husband! My dreams back then were of becoming a high flying financier or consultant. I started on that ladder for a while and then quickly realized I was most unsuitable for it – I don’t care for hard work 🙂 Having fun, indulging in my hobbies (errr clothes and wine…), chatting with dear friends, and having adventures suits me far better. So here I am about to turn 43 and wondering where my 40s will lead me. All I wish for is health and happiness for my loved ones. Can you tell I feeling a little introspective?

I know the feeling of thinking you are still 21 very well Joanna, sadly my mirror tells a different story lol! In case I am not online at the time, I wish you a very happy birthday. Health is all we can ask for and if anyone gets the wealth bit too, well good for them I say! Cheers lovely! x
Ignore the bloody mirror:) We can’t stop it can we so get on with it and throw caution to the wind! Love you Missus thanks for the birthday wishes – I’ll think of you on my first glass of bubbles – one day we’ll have one together! xx
Happy Birthday fellow Leo, it’s my birthday in a few days too, but I have a few years on you, and I’m not sure I’m as sanguine about the ageing process – but I completely agree that health and happiness for those we care about is the most important thing. Have a great celebration.
Ha – I think I am just resigned to it lol – I can’t stop it can I! I will say though that I definitely pay little attention to what you are ‘supposed’ to do or ‘supposed’ to look like at a certain age – I completely ignore those apparent standards:) Happy Birthday to you too – us Leos are fab, though we have a few hang ups too – we’re not always the extroverts we appear to be! xxxxx
Is you b’day on the 10th? if so, we actually share the same date, I’m just + 4yrs on you. I salute your attitude! Great to see your celebrations – I’m planning fish & chips with bubbles. Go Leos!
YES!!! Happy birthday to you!!! Fish and chips and bubbles sounds PERFECT! I enjoyed a great Mexican meal with margaritas which I am paying for today! xx
Happy Birthday for 4 days time Joanna – I still feel 21 (some of the time!) but my body doesn’t – bloody old age catching up and things start to ache and stiffen up! Can’t get over the fact that 50 is the next milestone but ‘hey-ho’! – as they say! 🙂 x
Whoop whoop! You look amazing so kick back & enjoy! Its the big 4-1 for me soon! Where did the last 20yrs go?! Ax
