Hicky Burpy Valentine's Day #50 Club Bubbles!!
My thoughts for this Valentines Day 2012....
The day that I finally become a pentagenurian and the day before I retire from my good Government job.... forever.
Delight and relief at reaching these momentous milestones.
Total belief that 50 IS the new 40 and that I'm now old enough to know a lot .... and young enough to still do it. ALL of it!!
A cake, chocolate of course, with 50 candles on it has to be a very big one.
Happy knowing that the State may believe they got the best of me over the years..... and secure in the knowledge that the best is yet to come!
Very aware of this wonderful opportunity to look back over my interesting life's journey so far and to acknowledge any achievements along the way...
Oh, SOD that.....
I have two great reasons to PARTAAAYY!
Even if I don't like big parties I adore lots of small ones ;-)
Total enjoyment in attending Dirty Dancing last week with my soon-to-be-pentagenurian friend ...
The hilarity, if a tad juvenile, of a meal out with lovely friends last Friday... who knew putting on ones seat belts could be so hilarious??!!
50 IS just a number and is absolutely NO reason that you shouldn't dance your ass off in your local, almost empty pub..... with a fellow #50Club member!!!
Valentines Day is a wonderful time to have a special birthday..
It's been a day of opening lovely cards, reading lovely tweets and LOTS of facebook messages and has been very heartwarming indeed :-) Thank you all SO much!
I can't lie though.... it's also been a day of opening some fabulous presents and that has been really FUN!!
This momentous 'coming-of-age(ing)' is a time to attempt to be fabulous at 50 and to brave donning that little red dress!!
As fun as sharing this with you has been, it is now time for some pre-pub Hicky Burpy Valentines day #50Club bubbles so....
There may be some more dancing in the local later.... for which I offer NO apologies whatsover!
Let the celebrations continue....
