Day 597 my 49th birthday….how did I ever get this old?! 😱😳😬🤯🥳🎉

Jeez….. 49. That was fast.

I shouldn’t be scared of my age. I am so very grateful to have reached an age that so many have not. But I am a wee bit scared.

This last wee while I am so very aware that life is short and it’s meant to be lived every moment. Not slept through. …

Travelling is my passion. We talk about it a lot and we know there is a lot more to come.

We need to spend the rest of our lives appreciating every day and making it worthwhile.

So we’ve been awake since about 3am…. Yup. We were wide awake in time for the Fit Body Farm at 6am. I worked hard and upped my weights a bit again.

Off to work straight after for one last day before a few days off.

I got a call at the back of 9. Boss man calling me to Upholstery as “the place is a disaster” and “it’s the last thing he needed to walk into”….. 😳🤯🙊

Yay!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 🥳🎂🎉🎊🥳

Thank god. Honestly I had the fear…. It’s still too soon 🤣🤣🤣

Wait till you see what they got me…

Check the 2nd row up…. That’s a special team of folk eh? They know I’m on my FBF challenge so got me pineapple in case I didn’t want a doughnut 🍩…. I had the one above the pineapple! 🤫🥳

The card is handmade too!! So special. Was really chuffed after I got over the relief at the shock. 😬🤣

I feel very blessed to have had so many messages today from so many lovely people.

I haven’t opened any cards or gifts yet as we’ve both been working today. Craig will be home at 8 and we have a half crispy duck coming!

I’m totally milking the gifts and cards and will hold off as long as I can to make it last 🤣🤣

I turn 49 at 9.36pm.

I’m 1,049 days alcohol free.

I’m 95 days anti-depressant free.

I’m one very lucky girl.


And now I’m off to hang out with my Crochet Hookers for a bit!

Stay safe everyone 🥳🥳🥳
