Another year closer to 40!


Today is my birthday and I am turning 39 *glup*.  I would like to ask for a recount because I dont feel that old and Im sure last time I checked I was still in my 20s!!

Anyway, there's no getting around it.  

I have had an absolutely wonderful day. I feel totally blessed.

My hubby bought me my new camera a few weeks ago, which I am really enjoying learning to use.  And this morning my darling children gave me beautiful homemade cards,  and some yummy gluten free goodies.

I went to the hairdresser and got pampered and then went out to lunch with some friends. They spoilt me rotten and I had a lovely time (check out the balloons above )

A dear friend turned up at school with a birthday cake and I was so touched that she had found a recipe and gone to the trouble of making a gluten free one - and it was DIVINE!! YUM!

Hubby grabbed some takeaways for dinner (we never have takeaways so it was extra special) and the him and the kids made me a gluten free banana cake with lemon icing - YUM again!  Im all caked out.


So it was a wonderful day and I am so excited about my year ahead, my last year of my 30s.
