Today I turned 40. I never imagined how a birthday would make me feel older, but this one certainly has.. I am sure I will get used to saying I am 40 rather then saying I am in my late 30's...
Wine gets better with age, my husband says women to do..(he'll be 57 this year)
Did anyone else feel weird when they turned 40?

I did some leading last night - ticked this one off on the list. Led at the indoor wall in Warrington. I guess I'll get to do this outdoor at some point in the not too distant future, but this is good enough!

I forgot to post. Last week I did a weekend's course in the Cotswolds entitled "Can't sing, Will sing". Have lots of learning points to go away with - need to improve my breathing and possibly invest in a small keyboard to see if we can't just get a bit more in tune. I did my first solo - Eidelweiss. Just to the class. It went well. Couldn't sing for the next 4 days on account of losing my voice.

Today I went outdoor climbing for the first time ever. Stanage with the Lancashire Climbing and Caving club. I acquitted myself admirably. It was exhausting but fun. Hot bath is now required. And new trousers, the old pair I was wearing have been suitably ripped to bits.

Completed.

Leaned over backwards to kiss the blarney stone at Blarney Castle, Blarney, Nr Cork, Southern Ireland. This is said to give the gift of eloquence to those who kiss it. Had a commemorative rip off photo done by a sleazy Irishman just to mark the occasion. Will cross this off the list.

Well, I have made gradual progress. I have a flight. I have a hotel. I have airport parking in Liverpool. I have a car hire for a day from Cork. I have maps and directions. I have euros. I am scared to the pit of my stomach of doing this alone.

On my last homework I received the comment "conscientiously completed".

Is that rather like describing someone you date as "nice"?

It's not exactly a rave review, is it?

I have booked a flight from Liverpool to Cork for an October weekend. No hire car or accommodation as yet, and yes, I'm doing it alone. Go me.
