A birthday and a day of happy

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 🙂

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.

  1. Happy belated!! Glad you had a happy day 🙂 Birthdays always make me feel a bit reflective – I like to journal about all the biggest things that happened in my life the previous year on my birthday.

  2. That’s a great picture. It reminds me of the author photo from one of Fran Lebowitz’s books, where she was sitting at a desk in front of a stone wall where “Author” was chiseled (which any New Yorker knows is part of the Museum of Natural History).

    Happy birthday!

    “Age is really just a number.” I heartily endorse that idea (being less than a year away from turning sixty, as I calculated recently 🙂 ).

  3. Happy belated birthday gorgeous!!! In a way the older you get the less bogged down you can feel. Like you know better so it’s not such a surprise. You can go on about your life. Does that make sense?

    Hope you are well and happy. Big squeeze hug!!!
