I'm sitting here wrapped in a towel, contemplating my last day as a 39 year old. In just a few short hours, I will be joining the over 40 club! I was looking back today at what I always wanted to achieve by the age of 40. Firstly, I wanted to be debt-free, as I truly wanted my life with no financial restrictions to begin. I haven't made it-I'm still up to my ears in debt. Secondly, I wanted to be a glamorous, sylph-like Liz Hurley type. I haven't made that either. I'm more like a chunkier version of that actress that used to be in the comedy series Men behaving badly, with Neil Morrissey & Martin Clunes. She played a know..that one!! (Damn, what's her name?).
Anyway, I was bemoaning my failures to The Swede the other day, complaining that I felt like an elephant.....and he replied "But you're my elephant".
I guess he was trying to be sweet, but somehow, that didn't work for me!!
I'm off now to vegetate in front of the tv & drown my sorrows with a doughnut & said Swede (No, I didn't kill him). Oh, and if anyone can remind me of the name of that darned actress, it will save my sanity. Thanks!


  1. Caroline Quinton?? It could be worse you could look like Lesley Ash! I'm 40 next year - very scary! Like the sound of the doughnut - I would add a large glass of wine too!!

  2. Ah, that's it!! God thanks, that was really annoying me, like only those daft little things can!! :-D
    The doughnut (a yum yum from Greggs, actually) was lovely, but I have to get back on track with the diet soon!! (She said, knowing that The Swede got her a birthday cake for tomorrow!!)
