Happy Birthday to Me!

Wow - Today I reached halfway to 90! I've really been looking forward to this birthday. I didn't really like being 44. It's been a turbulent year here in Christchurch with plenty of worry and disruption. And so much change. Now I don't mind change. In fact change is often really good. It's just that there has been so much change and so quickly.
So it's time to embrace the change and move forward. I'm really pleased to be 45. I'm excited about the future and what's coming next. I think I have been a little frightened to look too far ahead this past year. We've all learnt so much about ourselves and each other. I am thankful that my family are all safe and that I have such amazing friends.
I've been talking about writing a blog so here is day one. On my 45th birthday. I know a few of my friends have been worried about getting older but I'm grateful to be here and I think about all those who never made it this far and beyond.
I have started a few new projects recently that I am very excited about so watch this space :)

And I must say that today has been the best birthday ever. Breakfast in bed, watching two of my daughters in their dance recital, fab pressies including a new iPhone. Lunch with extended family and chilling out at home and an amazing Abbey Road birthday cake. Perfect! (There are 5 figures on the cake - The Beatles and Me)

Thank you Glenn, Matt, Kirsten,Olivia, Briana and Joshua for making this my best birthday ever.

Love you all to the Moon and Back xx
