So this is 30?

Standard

I arrived into my 30’s with less of a bang more of a whimperhangover!

Friday was my actual birthday, and lovely Dave and I had a really wonderful day, though me waking him up at 7, having variously also been awake at 2, 5 and 6 was maybe not the best start to the day.  It was my 30th birthday, not my 8th, but apparently I still get ridiculously excited!

I got lovely presents from Mr Dave, a pandora bead with my birth stone on it, a gorgeous star necklace, the game 221b Baker Street and we’re going to see Rock of Ages in London next week!! (Tickets hidden in the soundtrack CD!)

We had lunch at Jamie’s italian in Norwich which was lovely and then we played the game and drank fizz!!

 

Saturday night was my birthday party, and I was on one… I think I’m still paying for it today, 2 days later! My family came for the weekend and there were so many lovely people there!

My birthday present!

I got more wonderful presents (including 3 bottles of fizzy wine that I’ll not be drinking anytime soon! I’ll save them for a special occasion, and when the memory of my hangover has passed!)

30 by 30 challenge

I completed 11 of my 30 challenges before my birthday, the list deserves a whole post of it’s own, I want to talk about it in a bit more detail, I think I watched 97 films in the end!

I’m not going to do a 40 by 40 list, or even 31 by 31… but I am going to have a list of goals for this year, probably somewhere in the region of 10-15, because it really made me feel focussed and positive to have something to aim for.

 

So this is 30! And as many people have told me, it is just a number, I always knew it deep down, but I have been scarily focussed on it, and not worried, but nervous I suppose.  My worries stemmed from worrying I wasn’t grown up enough to be 30, but actually, I don’t care – I’m not sure I’m ready to be a grown up just yet! I’ll carry on in my semi-grown up state…

Did you worry about an age? Are you worried about one coming up?

I thought I would kick off my challenge properly with a photo post, quite fitting as it is a picture of one of my amazing presents!

Dave got me this fab coffee machine, complete with milk steamer and it makes the most delicious lattes! Yum!
