I can't believe it's been nearly a year since I celebrated my 40th with my daughter who turned 18 last year. Once you're over that hill I think you start rolling down the other side at rather a speedy pace! Where did that year go?
Lots of my friends are in the same boat so we just ignore the numbers and act our shoe size not our age! My best friend, Mel, celebrated her 41st with a karaoke party at her place.
She's great at making parties fun with great decorating and props all on a budget. She had wigs, hats and glasses for us to play with during our singathon. Great for ice breaking and even greater for smile making!
I don't believe that being over 40 should mean you stop having fun and being playful.
Life is for living, laughing and enjoying every moment as we really never do know what might be around the corner. YOLO (you only live once) as my daughter often says.
Several members of our broadcasting team and I went to Thorpe Park recently. If you've never been its a must! We had so much fun and it was a really lovely sunny day.
One of the very few we've had this year! I just thought you might like to see some of the wonderful people I work with who are always there, always fabulous but always behind the scenes.
Love Catherine x
