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!
