Birthday Girl

Well there goes another birthday!!
Quite rude actually how it insists on showing up year after year being all confrontational, reminding me that I'm not 25 anymore.

I hope to have a balanced life by the time I'm here.

I Remember being a kid and loving when birthdays came around, the anticipation of presents, getting to be a year older and a big girl....well why does it have to change?? I'm embracing my 40's and loving it...really I am, it's just that life just seems to be getting more complicated, more time poor and more stressful the older I get...and if that could just stop everything would be fabulous. 
This modern women stuff and having it all is all well and good but I definitely have to work on the life/work balance because at present it is all tipped over onto the work side of life.
What do you all do to put balance back in your life??? I need some hints.
P.S Don't forget the Dash & Albert Rug give away that Sarah from Winton House has generously donated!!! Valued over $500.00 just comment on Lily G facebook and let me know why you need a fabulous Dash & Albert Blue & white stripe rug.


  1. Happy Birthday Melinda - hope it was a fabulous!

  2. I'm hearing you on the life becoming more complicated! And just when you have a bit of balance, something new comes up and you have to juggles everything all over again. Sometimes I think of the worst case scenario, measure that up against a major disaster, and realise that it won't be the end of the world if it doesn't get done when and how I want it to!
    Hope you did manage to get a bit spoilt on your birthday.

  3. Hi Melinda, hope you had a great birthday! Sorry it's belated, but I had iPad troubles lately, all fixed now so I have to catch up on my reading.

  4. Happy Birthday Melinda,
    It was nice meeting you (I met you at the Helen Hackett Lunch).
    I love your blog!
    I agree with you about trying to find a balance, I turn 40 in a few weeks and I'm probably the busiest I've ever been.
    Cocktails always make me feel better!!!
