Boxing Day Birthday
46 and a day. Half a day if you take into account the fact I was born at teatime.
I've noticed lots of physical changes this year - wrinkles are there even when I'm not smiling or concentrating and the first silver hairs have appeared. I'm not worried about either - I love the fact that our faces reveal the character within as we age. The fact that I've spent most of my life either concentrating or smiling can't possibly be a bad thing.
And I've finally found a focus and an ambition worth pursuing. I am loving every minute of my OU studies and intend to use the degree as a passport to teaching. One day... It's a way off yet, but I know I'll get there.
Smiling - lots.
