No going back now

I am forty one today.  Which means that I am now definitely in my forties.  I didn't mind turning forty a year ago.  I loved my thirties and felt that my forties would be even better.  And besides, there was somehow both a feeling of achievement to it and a sense of still being able to dance across the line back into my thirties if I wanted to.  But now I am definitely forty something.  No turning back.  Mmm - not quite sure what to make of that.

I have taken no photographs today.  But here, for no reason other than I like the image, is one I took a couple of years ago.

Maybe my forties will be the decade where I dress up in nothing but balloons....

Or maybe not.



  1. Happy birthday! I love the image... x

  2. Happy Birthday! Don't worry about your age it is just a state of mind and you can change it. Enjoy yourself. Love Linda x

  3. Happy Birthday. We share it!!!! You are the third blogger I read who has the same birthday as me and my boyfriend oh and his twin sister. We are obviously very fashionable with our date of birth!

  4. Happy happy birthday!! I can only dream about being 41 again!!!!! Remember that 41 is the new 31 xxx

  5. Happy Birthday! I am turning 40 this year and I am looking forward to it. The forties are the new thirties...

  6. Happy birthday! I suspect balloons might be a bit chilly as a dress today, though. (or at least they would be here. brr!)
