Well I'm 40!

Yup, no way to stop it.... it kind of crept up and flattened me. But you know what? I'm actually fine about it! Sure it seems like a grown up number, but I still don't feel like a grown up..... I'm sure my mental age is decreasing somewhere along the lines!

It's been a busy and kind of scary time for me recently. Money sucks..... health is dodgy.......scray stuff going on at work.......basically it feels like the world is ganging up on me at the moment. Despoite it all I am still feeling positive and having a great time, so I guess I'm managing to put everything in the correct perspective. (don't tell anyone but that's probably the age thing!!!).

I did have a bit of a play this week, so another LO to show you.Ross is getting very "grown up" too. I loved this photo of him I took recently. It works both in colour and B&W, but I had a hankering to do a B&W LO, so here it is.

I'm loving white cardstock at the moment.

I got loads of lovely cards from my online friends, so thank you everyone... you know who you are. I also received some amazing pressies from my family and friends, so thanks again to everyone.

Love that LO

Belated Happy Birthday. I'll be 40 in just over a week and I so agree about it seeming like such a grown up number. I'm like you though and feel younger and that's how I'm staying. Hope things pick up for you xx
