Last week was my birthday. It’s a cliche but when you’re younger time seemed to go so slowly, I remember the six week summer holiday from school stretching endlessly and everyone looking so different when we came back but I can’t quite believe that another year has passed since my last birthday. I suppose this feeling really means I’m getting older. I am properly in my thirties now but you know what age is really just a number.
My favourite photo from last week was a quick one we took with me posing at the Victoria and Albert museum in London. A silly, fun moment that shows even though I’m thirty-one now I often act like I’m still sixteen :)
I also found a website where you can find out which celebrities are the same age as you. I was cheered up to find good company in Kelly Clarkson, Emily Blunt, Carrie Underwood and Leann Rimes :) http://lists.lucywho.com/celebrities-who-are-31-years-old-c19256815.html
This year my birthday fell on International Day Of Happiness, which worked well as I had cake :) And I think sometimes you have to chose to be happy. I could have felt sad about time slipping away this year or turning another year older but I tried to focus on the good things like the people who took the time to wish me a happy birthday and help me celebrate.
