Another year older, I would like to be able to say wiser, but somehow I don’t think so, I may be forty five now but I still feel like I did twenty years ago, of course I wish I still looked the same but alas no. I spent the day celebrating my birthday with the people I love most in the world, my family. The sun was shining, everyone was relaxed and happy, there was champagne and nice food, what more could a girl possibly ask for?
I have really been thoroughly spoilt with many beautiful birthday messages and presents from my amazing friends and extended family. My mum outdid herself again and made me the most decadent chocolate birthday cake, unfortunately we were all too full to enjoy it, but I’m sure tomorrow the girls at work will be happy when I take in left over cake to share.

Wow you and mom look like two birds of a feather. Happy birthday!
Thank you 😀😀😀
Thank you so much 🙂
If you really still feel 25, I am sad for you. But, Happy Birthday.
Thank you Sally. Why are you sad for me though? My mind may still feel young but my body reminds me often that I am not any more. I’m sure we all feel like this don’t we?
No, actually, a lot of us are grateful, acknowledging the privilege we have to continue to live and mature. I, for one, am quite certain I am 60 and do not feel nor do I want to feel that I have stalled in a previous decade.
I think our culture prizes youth to the point of absurdity. It is not a good thing not to mature; it’s a tragedy, really.
Grow up .Grow old. Be glad. Be sure. Take it on. Be happy about it.
I have lost dozens of friends to earlier deaths, so I stand in my age firmly and with thankfulness.
This is so true Sally! I am not bothered by my age it is merely a number. You are right of course many people do not get to make it to 45 I am very lucky that I have.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
Thank you, I had a wonderful day surrounded by my family and all my pets 🙂
And such a nice cake. It really amazes me what you folks can do with Vegemite.
Happy happy birthday!
Thank you so much 🙂
Happy Birthday – and I’ll admit, in my mind I’m 20! 🙂 It’s not that I don’t value my age (40), I do – but in my mind, I still think I’m in my 20’s and can do everything I used to!!! And, still to this day you can ask me “Why on earth did you do that?” and like a 20 year old, I don’t have a good answer. It just seemed like the fun thing to do at the time!
I’m glad you got spoiled and were able to spend time with those you love!
Hahahahahaha sounds just like me!!! It seemed like a fun thing to do so why not? Thank you Kate xxx
Congratulations upon your Birthday… We are forever Young!.. I turned 60 in May.. and I think Being 60 is the best year yet… Honest! … It gets better and Better as we are only as young as we feel 🙂
I totally agree that we are only as young as we feel. And the older I get the happier I am within myself. It’s nice to hear that 60 is your best year yet, my sister and my husband both turn 50 next year and they too are actually really looking forward to it. Thank you for the birthday wishes 🙂
Looks like you had a wonderful birthday.
I can only dream about being 45. I sure can’t remember it. lol
Lol thank you very much 🙂
How wonderful! It looks like you’ve had a lovely day xxx
It was a wonderful day xxx
I…want…that…cake. Oh, and a very happy birthday or as we say over here “Hauoli la hanau!” By the way, don’t feel bad about 45. First of all it’s only about 6 1/2 in dog years and, besides, I have socks that are that old. No big deal.
Hahahaha thank you 🙂
Thank you 🙂
happy belated birthday!
Thank you 😊😊
