Birthday!

Today I am another year older and I am contemplating whether it's about the right time to start having a midlife crisis. I have the day off work, as working on your birthday must be the most depressing thing ever, and so far there has been coffee and pressies (photos later!) and there will be shopping and hopefully not getting stuck in the snow (February is a bit of a rubbish time to have a birthday!)

To prove that I am a real child of the 70's, check out the paisley on this!


Thirty years or so ago!

Happy Birthday!! :) Love the paisley.. I think I had something similar. Also.. how about the dress over bright tights, and dress over trousers?? Or was that just my mum dressing us like ninnys?

Yay, happy birthday, Helen! The paisley looks pretty cool to me - better than '50s fashions any day (think hideous knitted twinsets and stretchy nylon slacks with a loop that went under your foot to hold them in place...).

Have a lovely day! X

Happy Birthday, Helen! That's a great photo! I hope you've had lots of lovely pressies and I'm looking forward to seeing the photos when you post them. My birthday's also in February and now I'm thinking I should take the day off work too :-)

Have a lovely birthday! I am overdue my crisis, or maybe I have started it and not realised!!?

Happy Birthday! - Definitely not time for a crisis yet, you've got a long way to go before the crisis sets in...... really! - Love the dress, and the haircut (I had the same one!)

Happy Birthday Helen!! We share that day - yes mine is First of Feb too!

But I think I can say authoritatively that you're too young for a mid-life crisis :)

Happy (belated) birthday, Helen - that paisley is sooo fashionable now, isn't it? I can see you're much younger than me. I was a teenager in the 70s.
