The last day......of my 30's

yes....today is the last day of my 30's.....in a few short hours....I'll be officially 40!!!  For months...I've joked about being 39 again.  Saying that 39....great age...so great I thought I'd do it again...so instead of turning 40....I'll do 39 again!!  I also said that there were a few things that I wanted to do before I turned 40 and I didn't get around to doing them....so I'll give myself another year ....hence 39 again.  heheheh

Cheeky cheeky me....it's undeniable....my drivers licence is going to say that I'm 40.  I'll have to tick the next box down when I am doing those tick box surveys.  Even the wrinkles in the mirror look like they belong to a 40 year old. hehehe

Ok....help me celebrate my birthday......I want to see how many birthday wishes I get in the next few days....leave me a comment, sing me a song, tell me how great being a 40 year old will be....anything....and I'll be giving away up to 40 little raks.  I have a pile of things here to give away...including my Urban Lily goodies....there is the Urban Lily black life journal....there is urban lily paper, chipboard goodies, rub ons etc etc....there is Making Memories Noteworthy, there are little embellishment packs.....and it is open to scrappers overseas as well. 

If I only get 10 birthday wishes....then I will split the pile into 10 raks...and send them off.  If I get 50 wishes.....I'll draw 40 names.  So there will be up to 40 raks.    I'm off to dinner tonight with DH and another couple with whom we've been friends with for the past 22 years!!!

And I have a fun day planned tomorrow....lunch with my birthday sister Jane and some of our friends at Chelsea Heights Pub.  Then it's out to watch The Prince Caspian & dinner with DH and the kids.  No cooking...no cleaning!!  hehehe

Let me be the first to leave you a comment Ruey who is soon to be 40....!!! I can't tell you what it's like to be 40 but there is a song that says "Life begins at 40"...I hope you enjoy your last evening of being 39 and I will post a comment again tomorrow when you are officially 40! That means you don't need to RAK me twice (no ul for me thx)...!! xo Jorja :)

happy birthday Ruey...hope you have a great day....says she who wishes she was celebrating 40...lol

maxandmimasmummy said...

Welcome to 40 Ruey. It's not too bad over here, I've been a resident since Deecember. Writing down your age isn't that bad, it's when you find you have to tick the box that says 40-49 instead of the 30's box....that makes you cry a little. Hope you have a fabulous day.

sinfullydeliciousmummy said...

Aaah. You have nothing to worry! 40 is the new 18 (not that 18 was ever in as you still need to be 21 to be legal in othr countries. haha. but you get my gist.)To be honest, I was actually surprised you're turning. You look younger (and I am not sucking up! Hehe)

Happy, Happy Birthday! May it be filled with good health, wealh and happiness and lots & lots & lots more SB! :)

Imagine I am singing to you, and I'm not typing the full song ok. I know you have a great imagination so if you are so old that you don't know the words then you will have to make up some. Happy birthday to you.........Happy birthday dear ruey hb to you.
Being forty is not that bad... make the most of it. At least you don't have to prove your age any more. I get upset when they don't ask me.lol
Have a great one and enjoy.
Keep smiling and healthy
love
Judy
