30

Today is my birthday. The calendar says I'm turning 30, which I find very hard to believe. I certainly don't feel 30. When I was in my early 20s, 30 seemed, well, old. But now that I'm here, it seems OK. I'm a lot more mature now than I was 10 years ago. And I know a lot more about myself and my goals. I've also stopped caring so much about what other people think. And those are good things I think.

I celebrated with friends over dinner on Saturday and with family over cake on Sunday. I've been having an extended weekend and took Monday and today off work to relax and get some crafting done. I should have some photos to show you later in the week.

Right, I'd better be off - Alex got me an overlocker (serger) for my birthday and I'm about to go and pick it up. Looking forward to playing with my new toy!

Happy birthday. When I turned 30 I had the same thoughts. I felt more mature, didn't care so much about how others perceived me, etc. But also still felt kinda like I was 10 years old.

Have fun with your new serger. Can't wait to see what you make with it.

Happy Birthday Louise! Look forward to seeing what you make with the new overlocker? Have you used one before? They seems scary!

Happy Happy Birthday!
Have fun with your overlocker- bring on the stretchy knits! Just in time for winter merinos.

Happy Birthday!

30 is nothing to worry about, 35 is fricking terrifying.
