40? Bring It On!

I turned 37 on Saturday which didn't bother me at all. I am not one of those women who states their age as 30 something, I am 37 and thats a fact. I have never been bothered about age or getting older until.....
the text message.
This message was a joke from a girlfriend saying happy 21st ha ha which I found funny until I sent a response. My brothers favourite joke when he turned 40 was that he was 30 with 10 years experience, so I thought I would steal that and wrote that I was 21 with 16 years experience......
16 years....
was it that long ago that I was 21??....
it doesnt feel that long......
So now I cant wait till I am 40 because being 30 with 10years experience doesn't sound nearly as bad!

I hear you! I turned 38 2 months ago and am still wondering how I can possibly be one of those people who says things like "I haven't seen you for........what is it, 20 years?" I am not ashamed about being my age just more amazed that it is true!

Happy Birthday!

My favourite was a friend who turned 30 and said that she was 'celebrating the first anniversary of her 29th birthday' - love it!

I'm so much happier with being 30... 29 was too much pressure.

Love your kids range, and congrats on your press xx

Happy belated birthday! I hear you too... I'm now 38 and can't believe how fast time is flying... totally unbelievable... I don't at all mind telling everyone my age now but I do think once I'm forty it is going to scare me a little, if I'm totally honest...
