40 years ago today...


...I came into the world
(please note very impressive lamb chops sideburns on Dad).


Yes, it was the early seventies. Check out those groovy curtains. There's Puddles and Rebecca the poodles with me.
Sorry about the pic quality. Was in a rush this morning.


Wow, who'd have thought I'd ever be 40 years old?
Not me.
When you are a child, 40 seems so ancient. But now that I'm here, I don't feel very old. Strange how that works.
Here I am with one of my bestest buddies Zeta. We were born a day apart (me first), grew up a street apart and went to the same school. It's a long time between drinks for us as Zeta lives in London (currently) but when we do see each other, it's like a day hasn't passed. That's a good friendship if you ask me.
Well, Happy B'day to us!

  16. Happy Birthday to you, you cool Australian chick! :)
    Hope your day was fabulous.
    MY GOSH, those ARE impressive side burns.
    Hope they don't ever come back in style.
    I've seen some impressive sideburns on pics of my dad from the 70s.
    Certainly fun to look at.
    And, wow, those curtains are something, aren't they.
    Don't think you needed to point them out.
    They speak for themselves.

    Love your maple thats opening its leaves.
    I really would love to have one in my yard too.
    And lily of the valley, love'em too, could over dose on its scent.

    Cool buses, didn't know Australia had double deckers too, like England.
    Hope you get to meet the mystery house owner some time and find out more about the house.

    Again, happy birthday.

    Best,

    Annelie

  18. Happy birthday Sarah- from experience I can tell you 40 is a cracker!!

    Life just gets better- and you look so gorgeous and young...if you wanted to be *in your 30's* for a while longer -we'd all believe you hon!

    Hope you had a wonderful day with your friends out from London...nothing like a friendship you've had forever...I met another Melissa my very first day of kindergarten, and our lives have been intertwined forever- although she lives in QLD and we are here in England- our kids are all friends and we FB and email-

    happy birthday from all your bloggy friends too...

    Melissa- Miss Sew & So
