A perfect day…

Turning 40 was a scary thought….. and that was back when I was 20. Now its come and gone it doesn’t seem like all the fuss was worth the time spent brooding on not being  a 30 something-er anymore. Life is still good, I have an amazing group of friends, my family is strong. Nothing has changed.. Jesus and to think I thought I would wake up with grey hair and a mortgage!

I had a fantastic day starting with yoga, cafe with friends and lapping up the perfect sunshine my birthday morning brought  to me, a surf, snooze, beers and family dinner. Now I am looking forward to the weekend. It should be a good gathering of old friends and family and the charts even say that there should be swell. Just please Parko win at Pipe and then I can be a merry and happy man!

Thanks to all the people who contacted me yesterday and although it warmed my heart to read birthday wishes it burned my soul when the phone rang and I spoke to people! Nothing like a good verbal especially on a birthday!
