Hiya Mandy,
Happy 40th Birthday!!
Just think, you are in your 41st year already!
If you listen to the experts you are at least half way through your life now!
(Don't worry too much………… the definition of an expert is; an ex is an has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure)

Just the same they do say that you achieve your best in life during the first 40 years,

so lets have a look then!....................oh! Never mind, they say it's best not to keep looking back (especially when there is no need!)

So let's look forward!
Just think of all the things that will probably happen to you in your older years;
Well…..your sight will start to deteriorate, but think of the benefits of this, you will not have to wince every time you see Chris in the nude, or come to think of it, yourself in the mirror.

Your hearing will start to go, but this means you won't have to listen to all the people around you moaning and winging away at you.

You may also play the selective hearing card, you know only hear what you want to hear…………….….oh sorry!You already do don't you!

Bit's of you will start to sag, ache or seize up, but don't worry your memory will be such that you won't remember when you are lying in bed….in the dark!
You're closer to getting a bus pass….and a winter fuel allowance!
You can go on Saga holidays………….…yes I know you could pass for this now! But I mean that you may go on them without telling lies about your age!

Anyway! When all is said and done the only way to ensure you enjoy the rest of your life is to;

Get pissed tonight!!
