I’m 39 at the moment, but some time soon – March 17 to be exact – I will be 40.

birthday cake with candles People have started to ask me what I am going to do for my 40th. My first instinct will be to run away and hide, although that’s not too practical in the long-term: How long would I hide for? How does one hide from a number? Where would I run to to escape this number?

I don’t like parties all that much. I think it might have to be a big meal somewhere for all my friends, and another for all my family.

Or I might just stay in bed that day and order some slippers and cardigan on the internet.

    I have until April 2012 to unlock the secret of reverse ageing. Birthdays make me cringe though. I’m not good at accepting gifts. I don’t consider myself to be that self indulgant that I love people giving me things for free. It doesn’t seem right somehow.

    …..but hell……..its just a number right ?? – and you’re only as old as the woman you feel. So just go get yourself an 20 yr old 😉
