The end of an era

Well my thirties anyway but I like a dramatic title for my blogs. I am about to hit the big 4-0 on Friday. Do I feel any different? Not really. My life has changed so much over the last couple of years I really haven't had time to notice myself ageing but looking in the mirror I see the wrinkles coming in more and more. Luckily I am not very vain so I don't really care and have more important things in life to think about. I wonder what the next decade of my life will bring, what do I want to achieve?
I usually like to have some goals but I am just quite content at the moment being a stay at home Mama. My goals are just to make sure Hannah has the best start in life that I can give her.
A lot happened for me in my thirties. I lost both parents, got married, moved continents, had a baby to name a few. I am sad that my sister has chosen to cut me out of her life in the last year(and more importantly the life of my nephews and niece) but I also have a lot to be thankful for as you all know. So bring on the 40's I am ready to accept the challenge.
For my birthday I asked for a trip back to the UK and we will be doing that very soon. I suspect that Jarlath is planning some surprise for me on Friday and I look forward to whatever that is. As long as it includes my husband and daughter I don't really care what I do on my birthday.
Well just a short musing as my bed and book awaits me. I really need to start reviewing some of the books I have been reading as I have had some quite good ones. This months book group book was Major Pettigrews last stand and I am looking forward to discussing it on Thursday. Last months was Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese and made for a really interesting discussion. I am still acquiring books wherever I go but I am becoming a lot stricter about getting rid of them once I have read them or just using the library. The local library is brilliant and I always seem to manage to get the book I want for my book group. They also have a great childrens section and I look forward to exploring that more with Miss Hannah. I so hope she inherits my love of books as I will be quite gutted if she does not enjoy reading. Even as a child I used to always have my nose stuck in a book.
