I turned 29 Today


Pretty much the title of this post says it all. I turned 29 today. I had a lovely Sunday afternoon drinks at my favourite place, The Brunswick Green with many of my dearest friends and rellies. It was such a pleasant afternoon, the weather, the company, the place, all just lazily perfect.

Thing was that in life, and indeed as a child, I had always set my goals for the age of 28. I have no idea why the random and arbitrary age of 28 was set but it seemed to work at the time. I haven't really achieved any of these goals (see this post for clarification) but I had never ever really thought of life beyond 28. I guess it was meant to be described by those catchall words 'and they lived happily ever after'. So now I am here, at age 29, in the happily ever after and I am definitely an 'I' not a 'they (one goal unobtained thus far but not really too concerned). I am at least living happily.

So thanks to everyone who makes this the happily ever after, the people I share my life with, both in reality and on this crazy blog world! And here is to another awesome 29 years more (and more on top of that perhaps) And I guess I better thank the other wonder that is keeping me deliriously happy - mother nature!

Happy birthday, Prue! I can just barely remember 29 (that was way back in the early 80s). I was having fun then, still am now. Hope it works out that way for you, too.

Happy birthday Prue! My life hasn't turned out the way I planned it either. But if we could plan out every little twist and turn, imagine how boring life would be!!!

So it may already be Tuesday down under, but please accept my wishes for continued joy and happiness for many many more decades. Make the best of each day. Help others. Eat well. Exercise. But always remember to have a deliciously rich desert on your birthday. :-)
