    Over the hill?

    It's my birthday.. Woo hoo!

    I'm 40 years old.. Doh!

    Not surprisingly it doesn't feel much different to being 39 (or 38, or 37 etc...), but I'm looking forward to getting nicely tipsy and eating loads of chocolate. Senility beckons...

    I remember my 40th, no problem; still felt relatively young. Come the 50th though psychologically it was a killer and the overused body also started to develop a lot more creaks and groans. Make the best of it I’d say!

    You're only as old as the person you feel

    So if you're single you're effectively zero...making you a minor and therefore unable to drink......

    That's no fun!


    But at least it'd cancel out your 40th

    Thanks everyone. I had a great meal out and sank a few glasses of wine. I guess I can relax now until the big 50 starts beckoning...

    So do I.. but then again, being born in 1987 has probably got something to do with that 8)
