Boy oh boy .... when I was 16 I thought THIRTY was really old. Now that I have hit the BIG 4-0 I feel wiser and more fulfilled than ever before. I certainly don't feel forty and as long as I can avoid looking in the mirror or paging through old photo albums I will continue to feel 30.(hehe) Here's a bit of good news for all us forty-something-ers ..... they say that "Forty is the new thirty!"
I didn't do anything major on my special day although I had toyed with the idea of having a big bash. I even come up with a theme. The theme of the party would be to come dressed as anything beginning with 'F'. (because my name is Fifi) I even had my dress sorted .... I would be the "Fat lady" and end the evening with a song .... 'cause the show ain't over til the Fat Lady sings! Needless to say I chickened out so Fifi the Fat Lady didn't get her Fifteen minutes of Fame! hehe
MrGee congratulated me with a ..... "Mmm Fifi, well done for making it to forty!" ...... I'm was not too sure how to take that one ??..... so I took it as a joke ..... ;)
I was spoilt rotten.... MrGee and the kids got me Coco Chanel's 'Madamoiselle' parfum and Tiery Mugler's 'Angel' parfum, ( yip, fragrances are my absolute best!) And......... a ....... clarinet ! I am so excited to learn this instrument. I've booked lessons from January but for now MrGee and the kids are being very gracious about the hideous sounds emulating from my 'new baby'.
I'm having a big family luncheon at my house this Saturday. I can't wait to spend the afternoon with the people I love the most ..... my dear family!
(This post is a bit late ..... my birthday was on the 18th!)
