[ . . Wonderful Week . . ] The big three-o

Well it's arrived. I have now turned 30.

If you have been a regular reader you will know that I wasn't particularly looking forward to the milestone but actually it has (so far) been pain free. I should have known that really but after a mini meltdown when turning 25 I wasn't that confident. I have always had a thing about milestones and anniversaries.

So I am now 30, a wife, and a stay at home mum. Blimey I couldn't have predicted that at 25!

I had a wonderful weekend celebrating the event with my nearest and dearest friends and family. A tea party for friends on Saturday, dinner with family on Sunday and a walk on Monday. Perfect.

The only thing that I'm not too happy about is completely failing to finish my 30 before 30 list. In fact I have only got about half way through. So I am going to have to turn it into another list because I am keen to finish it in some form or another. So do I go for 12 before 2012, 101 things to do before I die, 31 before 31, 40 before 40. I'm just not sure.

For the time being though I am just going to concentrate on being me and the best mum, wife, daughter and friend I can be. Blogging and the list are going to have to come second (or should that be fifth!?) because at the minute I just don't seem to be able to find the time to do it all.

Hope to see you all soon and any thoughts on the list please let me know.



  1. Happy birthday! x

  2. Noooo I missed your birthday :( So sorry, Happy Belated Birthday to you Lucy. I've not been about much lately - I'm rubbish (all explained in my latest blog).

    I wasn't looking forward to turning 30 (I'm 37 this year - eek!) but turns out I've had a better time in my 30's than I ever had in my 20's so I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I think you should do a 40 before 40 if you can fill it :) x

  3. Please focus on the things you DID achieve before you were 30!!

  4. And tell us what they were!

  5. Happy birthday Lucy! Sorry I missed it on the day, really glad you enjoyed it. List-wise... I think I'd be tempted to go 31 before 31, otherwise you could let it run and run - you never know what's round the corner in life, so if you want to do these things, just get going and do them. Although, having just looked at the list, maybe make it 32 before 32, as a few of the things on there (cupcakes, growing veg) will be loads more fun when E is 18 months+. And it'll give you a bit more space to do some of the other art/crafty things properly. Last word - dentist - you should go before E turns 1 as it'll be free for you (says she who hasn't been to the dentist for five years...). Good luck!


Please leave a comment, they make me smile and make my day x
