Wow, I was dreading my birthday this year being the big 40 but somehow it ended up being great fun.

My OH goes to the Cheltenham Gold cup every years therefore as a rule is away for my birthday and this year was no different but as we have been going through a rough patch he really pulled all the stops out.

It has been a mad mad month. It started the second week of March when I went to London with work and saw the ceremony of the keys at the Tower of London after a great afternoon High Tea at the Alridge.The next night was 'uppers and downer' in the Sgt Mess bar so I had lots of drinks with my friends and got home very late.

That weekend I went to dressage camp and had a ball drinking bubbly for three nights and playing with my pony.
The following Friday I went to the local pub with two friends, talked and drank more bubble I receive the most generous present from my lovely yard which I use to by a new Pikuer coat. Saturday morning I spent walking the dogs andOH came home around 2 so we went for a hack before going over the lovely @squidsin house for an amazing dinner party with more bubbly.

Sunday I can a combined training comp which Ginger was awesome 68% in the dressage and I refusal (mums fault).

Monday OH and I travelled to Rome for four days. It is the most amazing city.

I have felt completely spoiled and very much loved but in need of taking off the vino for a while.

Sorry very boring but wanted to share my amazing March

Please don't say that my OH is 12 years older than me :(

Mine's 21 years older than I am. :(

Sounds like a great time! :D. Way back when I was 15 I won Cadburys children's poetry competition and the prize was a guided art tour of Italy. We went to Florence, Sienna, Venice and Rome. I think Rome was my favourite. I am jealous! And very glad you had a great birthday!

Sounds great. I too am turning 40 this year. I am not dealing with it well. For a joke I started telling people I was 28, and to my astonishment they believed me (to my face anyway!). I have always looked young so am thinking of completely ignoring my 40th and turning 29 instead!

I embraced 40!! I was much more stressed about turning 30 for some reason. I am FAR FAR happier now than I was in my teens & twenties.

Me too, for some reason I felt old at 30 and convinced myself I was past doing loads of things! Haahhaaa. Since I've turned 40 I've done way more and made life changing decisions.
