Aha blog! Did you think I'd forgotten about you? Never! You are always at the back of my mind, always looking for another opportunity to cross one more task off my list.

I'm just back from a long weekend in sunny Scarborough. Unfortunately there never seemed to be the opportunity to complete my skinny dip task, so I will have to ear mark that for a secluded river somewhere in Nottinghamshire. I am grateful I didn't do the mass skinny dip that I talked about in a previous post, due to several reasons. The most important one is that the 'discreet' photography wasn't all that discreet having seen some of the photos in the press. Seeing my ample assets would certainly put most people off their breakfast, that's for certain.

My wonderful friend, Frenchy Phil, has sent me a French disc to spur me on to learn a new language, so you never know I may just be able to cross that task off before I turn 40.

As for my 40th itself, I can't really decide what to do. I thought about having high tea at one of the restaurants in Nottingham for all my girlfriends, but none of my friends know each other, so that could prove to be a little awkward. I think me and the husband (who turns 40 in September!) are just going to book a table at World Service. I'm hoping to have lost some of my excess baggage by then, so I may even treat myself to a new frock - push the boat out so to speak! I don't think I relish the idea of having a big do. I hate being the centre of attention at the best of times, so whatever I get up to on the day, will be discreet.
