I am 41 in almost an hour and felt the need to write a blog! Since being 40 my life has changed dramatically ‘life begins….’ and all that. I have moved forward so much with my life, I am focusing on my goals and overall I have been much more positive.
As far as the Easter holidays go, I wanted this week off to be fun and so far I haven’t been disappointed. I have a week off mainly to spend quality time with my family, but also so that I don’t have to go to work on my birthday. I power-walked to the shops at 7am yesterday morning to get the girls some play dough as we couldn’t seem to find any around the house (well actually we did but it had gone hard). Of course I never come back from the shops with just one thing and arrived back with fresh bread, ham and croissants and made sandwiches for my fiance before he went to work (felt like a stay-at-home mum – nice feeling!).
At the park yesterday the girls and I played ball, ate Easter eggs and I pushed them on the swings. It was so sunny and warm and as I watched them play I thought about how lucky I am. I’m really looking forward to the summer – hope it’s a good one, but even if it’s not, I’ll be out there with them anyway.
I think the girls are more excited about tomorrow than I am and keep reminding me by singing happy birthday, making me cards, drawings and pretend cakes. My friend popped round this afternoon with a present which was lovely and we had a good chat. My girls know her daughter and they were so excited playing that they didn’t want them to go home.
Full report of the days events tomorrow. It’s getting late now, I’d better get some sleep.
My tip: It doesn’t matter how old you are – just enjoy life!
