It’s this weekend!


Simon's birthday cake They told me 'life begins at fourty', well I’m not convinced (and I have had almost ten years to trial it!), and they never mentioned fifty?!

I’ll be fifty on Sunday and although I’m really not that big on birthdays, I wonder if things change when you're half way to the Queen’s telegram? (or SMS text as it probably is now!)

I don’t think anything is planned but my mum is in the area so she'll be with us for the weekend and that will be nice! I’m looking forward to some great homemade cards from the kids and I have taken the weekend off work so I can be offered a lie-in on Sunday morning (hint, hint!).

So, is it a downhill slide from now on? Do I need to give in and get some readers? Will my hair suddenly go the colour of Dale’s? (sorry mate!)  or should I just carry on behaving like a thirty year old?!

Catch you soon,

Simon x

    Happy Birthday Simon. It’s only a number! Hope you have a great day. And Dale looks gorgeous so no apology necessary!

    Happy birthday Simon. I hope you had a fantastic day. Fifty should not be a problem for you- you look the same as you did when you were presenting Real Rooms 🙂

    Dear All
    Thank you so much for your best wishes and comments. I had a lovely time and being 50 feels just the same as being 49!!

    Happy Birthday Simon! I’m nervously approaching my 50th too and have just picked up my first pair of readers! Aaarrgghh.
    Oh well, just gotta go with the flow and maybe act a bit more grown up now. :0) xxx
