Twenty-Nine

I’ve been calling it my Thirties Eve.

Birthdays don’t tend to hit me hard. Sixteen was interesting; my headteacher at the time gave me a card that said a more diplomatic version of ‘golly, we thought you might have snuffed it by now’. Twenty-one surprised me, even I suspected that I might have pegged it by then. But ever since that time, the passing of years has been a joy. My twenties have brought me so much happiness; a reunion with the love of my life, children that make my heart beat a little faster whenever I look at them. My twenties brought stability and financial security, my twenties brought wonder.

Twenty-nine feels like the beginning of the end of something beautiful.  And whilst I have such high hopes for what thirty will bring, I feel nervous.

I guess it’s a good thing that I have a year to prepare.

Tell me what your thirties have been like for you..?

    I’m in a similiar boat. I turned 29 last week, and this is the birthday I’m aware of. I’m definitely nearly 30 and I’ve (mostly) stopped worrying about what everyone else thinks and focussing on being me. We can brave our thirties together (I still think I want to be you when I grow up though!)

    Thirties was when I well and truly learned to stop caring so much what other people think of me. It was wonderful.

    NO, NO, NO………. you’re not turning 30.
    I can’t possibly have a 30 year old daughter.
    How old must that make me?
    Seriously, aren’t I lucky though to have had all these years so far with my Bambi, and now her beautiful children xxxx

    Happy birthday, Amber.

    I turned 30 last summer and so far, so good. 🙂

    I loved my 30s. Stronger than before, years to shape my personality further, and then my first babies at 32 and 35… Mind, the 20s were fab too. It’s my 40s I’m not yet so sure of. But they’re ten years into your future! Enjoy what lies ahead. Eat cake. Happy birthday!
