No regrets?

It's my birthday this month, and I am turning 35, which is apparently the new 40 (or so I am told by women who don't want other people to notice their 40th birthday). As tends to happen around this time of year I have been taking stock, having a ponder, and generally feeling wistful. What better way to kick me up the backside than a birthday contest. A de-lurk and win contest. Leave a comment about anything you like, and I will put your name in a hat (ok, probably a bowl actually) and one of my lovely offspring will pick a random person to receive a parcel of some sort. Could be anything, but I can guarantee that at least something will have been handmade by me. The deadline for comments is the big day itself - the 13th of November.


And because I can't post without a picture (it's just wrong) I have to include this one of Golden Boy. Mama loves you!

Hello, Miss! Lovely Blog and great picture! I have not seen this blog before :oP

35 sounds like a nice age, I'm sure you'll look radiant throughout.

Now, enough of this chit-chat - come help me pack!

If 35 is the new 40, then the old 40 must have been fabulous! 35 has been a blast...don't fret, you'll LOVE it!

If 35 is the new 40, then the old 40 must have been tremendous. 35 has been fabulous for me...don't fret, you'll see!

Anybody that says 35 is old, or a bad thing is honestly talking shite.

In the words of Curtis Mayfield... Keep on keeping on.

well personally i'm having a great time at the age of 40 - oh yeah apart from the exhaustion the inability to get up in the morning the inability to drink any alcohol... oh um that's the children' fault not the age :-D

35 the new 40? I thought 60 was the new 40. How old does that make me then?

Lovealittle said...

I still think that life began at 40 and look forward to hitting 50 in 2008 :-)

Lotte, you're a young little slip of a girl...don't forget it! 35 is still a little young...

...just noticed BHS are selling the boob tape!

Cute photo. Not seen the blog before. Looks good.

Hope you have a lovely time thinking up good things to do on the actual day rather than sitting and making a prize. 35 was good fun with lots to do, for me.

shunklies said...

ooh lovely blog Charlotte!

Just trying to get to grips with mine, one dya i'll understand it all lol.

Are you partying for your birthday?

greygoat said...

35? Oh pffft. You'll be absolutely fine, missus. As long as you get yourself a huge birthday cake, that is. x

yumptatious said...

Hang on: isn't it '40 is the new 35' which would make 35 the new 30?
My Dad used to say that you're only as old as the woman you feel, but then he's a dirty old man that I had to keep my young chums away from :-)
35 is a good age (coming to the end of my year at 35): embrace it, enjoy it and notice how similar it is to being 34.

SallyF said...

Mr.PS said...

thelinds said...

Happy Birthday. I will be hitting the big 35 next birthday too. Hope you enjoy it!

Kala said...

oh i love being 35, not looking forward to being 36 - means 40 is one year closer (anyway I'm still 26 in my head so what's it matter lol!)

Garden Cat said...

Happy Birthday! Birthdays are great no matter how many years you are - as long as there is cake, presents and you get loads of attention! Enjoy!
