Turning 30

12th January saw my 30th birthday come and go...

I feel old... I was dreading turning 30, it wasn't so bad, but it makes me feel old.

I hate surprises and I'm not into partying - I made that clear to my family. My sister, Yasmin, decided to throw me a party though! She invited us down for a celebratory meal  she was cooking for me the night before my birthday (11th)... Or so I thought...

But it turned out it was a surprise party!! Grrrr... I appreciate the thought very much, but I'd have been a million times happier if it would have just been a meal. I don't drink (partly due to health reasons, mostly due to lifestyle choice) and I'm not a social person, therefore partying/going out etc., just isn't for me.

Nonetheless, I put a grateful face on and said thanks and again, I do appreciate the thought, but I would also appreciate being listened to!!

Anyway, Yasmin got me a gorgeous 30th birthday cake made...



It was as delicious as it looks! I actually can't believe my sister went to so much effort overall - I would have thought a 19 year old would find me boring, even if she is my sister! So I really can't re-iterate how much I appreciate the thought...

In fact, all of the food she chose and made was lovely. I wouldn't have expected her to go to so much effort for me - what a lovely sister :)

On my actually birthday, I spent it how I was happiest though... At home with hubby and son doing what I wanted to be doing - entering comps mostly lol :P

I got some lovely (and some unusual) presents and money from family and friends. And at the end of the day, I realised being 30 wasn't much different to being 29!!

However, it did make me realise that life is maybe passing me by, so I am going to kick off this year by getting fit and doing some of the things I really want to do. Watch this space...
