No matter how many times I say it, it doesn't sound real. Yes, I am 40 years old. I don't feel it and I don't think I look it ( however it is we are suppose to look at 40 ) but I am IT. I bet my parents are feeling old about now. Their first born is 40.
I had a great day. I started the day off binding two quilts and doing some circle work on my new machine. Have I told you how much I LOVE it?  My sister and her boys came to sympathise celebrate with me and stayed with us for the night, and my parents came for dinner. I actually cooked it myself. So nothing really changes. We had Coles BBQ chickens, my famous potato bake and steamed vegies. To end it off, a black forest birthday cake. YUM!

This is me at 40

Thanks to everyone for their best wishes.
As they say
"Life begins at 40"
So bring it on !!!!
