Life Begins At......


Well, the day has finally arrived and passed by!!!!! I turned that funny age yesterday and although I've been dreading it for months, it came and went quietly really.

I was a very lucky girl and received lots of lovely presents. My dear hubby and daughter bought me a Slice and some cards to go with it, which I've been busy playing with. I also got some beautiful jewellery from my Sister and lots of other crafty bits and chocolate and some pennies to go shopping with so I feel very blessed.

The class I help out with on a Wednesday all came out and sang Happy Birthday which was wonderful but very embarrassing and one little boy summed it up when he said the best birthday present he said his Mum received was a big hug !!!! Well I got one of those too and I heartily agree with him!!

So, apologises for the lack of crafting this week, I'm sure you'll understand why. Normal service will resume shortly.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope your week is going well.

Happy 40th birthday Lisa - so pleased you had a wonderful day, and how fantastic to receive a Slice machine - Wow!!
Thank you so much for popping over and leaving a kind message today - what a coincidence that we both live in Leeds - who knows, maybe you live just around the corner!
Lots of belated birthday hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Sending you e-hugs to add to your real ones! Hope you had a fabulous birthday, and hope my card arrived on time!

Me again! Meg doesn't believe you. She guessed you were 31 x

Carolands said...

I thought 30 was worse than 40 and certainly didn't like 50, so make the most of the next ten years! Hope you had a good day x

Lynda said...

Wishing you Very Happy Belated Birthday Wishes Lisa (that's a right old mouthful lol). It sounds like you had a fabulous day and got lots of lovely presents too! Don't forget 40 is the new 30 so you're still a spring chicken!

I'm just checking up on you too - I hope you took the award from my blog but if you didn't I would very much like you to have it.

Love Lynda xxx

Julie Ranae said...

Great to meet you and look forward to getting to know you, too!

My husband is actually from Manchester and we are planning a trip over to see his mum in the next few months.

Lynne K said...

Well, Lisa, I certainly felt that my 40s were my best decade - so far! (I'll let you know about the next one when I get to the end of it!) I really think you're as old as you feel. Alright, some days I feel 90, but not often! And of course, if and when you're lucky enough to get grandchildren, you can go back to your childhood again. So if I were you, I shouldn't worry too much about your chronological age. Anyway, glad you had a lovely day, and lucky you getting a Slice. Looking forward to seeing what you make with it.
Hugs,
Lynne x

Hi Lisa

Happy belated 40th birthday!!!

Sounds like it was very special.

Don't worry. It is only a number.

I am quite a bit older than 40 but inside I feel no different to how I did when I was 14! I think that is what counts.

Will be interested to know how you get on with your "Slice".

Have fun!

Love Jules xx

Happy Belated Birthday, Lisa, it sounds like you had the perfect day!

Hope you enjoy all those pressies and can't wait to see what your new crafty stash produces!

Kay Carley said...

A very happy Birthday for yesterday Lisa. I reached that age in September last year and mine too passed quite quietly which I guess is no bad thing!!

I'm glad I've made you feel happier about your 'stash'!! I'm sure no-one has got as much as I have!! Just send all hubbies to my blog so that they know they have got nothing to moan about!!


Love Kay xx

Belated birthday wishes, Lisa :0)

Turning 40 was the best thing that happened to me, I woke up brimming with confidence & have done wonderful things ever since. They say life begins at 40 & I always thought it ws rubbish, but it really is true:)
