I'm older....I'm back (and a little prizedraw!!)


Sorry for my absence. I have been so snowed under with life in general, everything else has gone to pot. I haven't even done much knitting, sewing or crocheting,just breathing sleeping eating and working really.

I did, however, go on a 2 day NLP course, and that led me to a little reassessment of my life. Instead of thinking I have too little time to do what I love, I need to make time for what I love. So I am doing.

If you want to know more, click here. I would definitely recommend it. Those of you who know NLP, I know would concur. Amazing stuff for both business and personal life.

Yesterday, I turned 44!!!!! I cannot believe it, as inside I am still 20! Still, my gift to myself is to do more of what I love and also take more pictures as Rob gave me a beautiful little blue camera. So watch this space!!

In celebration of my birthday, I am having a little competition. Well, I didn't have a blogoversary one, so this is it....

I loved being 11 as I was living in South Africa, happy and settled in school, with great memories of that time. I didn't much like 22 or 33, but I think that 44 will be my best year ever.

What I would like you to do is leave a comment telling me your best age ever and why.

I shall have a search in my ever expanding stash for the prize and also visit the sweet shop!

So what are you waiting for??? Get commenting!

Deadline for entry is Tuesday 19th May at 12 midnight GMT. I shall draw prizes by the Thursday before I go to France.

I'm hoping 32 will be my best ever age - my mum has always told me that 32 was her favourite age. I'll be 32 on Monday and already have lots of good things planned for being 32 - like married in July; going on an amazing holiday to the Canadian Rockies; having a house to redevelop :o)

11 also when I stopped going into hospital for the first time since the age of two and stopped having operations

Happy birthday to you! No entry from me but I'd like to think that I have a pretty great life and that my best age is yet to be! :)

I'm going to say the best age is whatever age I'm currently at!

Happy Birthday Liz!

As for me, I'd say my best year was the first half of 25 when my career was starting to blossom, when i had the happy home and the darling other half, and when it felt like there wasn't a care in the world for me. But then the global financial crisis hit... so I'm hoping my best years are to come . Hopefully life doesnt stop where i'm at now.

Happy birthday!
My best age is now, 39! Because I have finally taken control of my life and am doing what I want to do work, home wise. And I appreciate every day given to me. It must be the looming of 40!

well 45 is turning out to be my best year yet.. life is starting to go to plan after the hell of the past few years.
but retrospectively it has to be 06.09.00 the day my 2nd son was born and my dear mom was still with me...all my loved ones together to share a moment of pure joy..
