Jolicious is Forty-licious

This week has been a bit strange. I turned 40! I don't know why but that number seems to be such a milestone. I'm not sure how I feel about it - it's a mixture of good and bad. Unfortunately I have no means of stopping the wheels of time - it waits for no one! I guess I'll just have to accept it!

Anyone who knows me will know I am not a party animal or even that sociable! There was no big party just a quiet Dinner with my hubby who constantly reminds me that he is still in his 30's! We went to Claridges and had some great food at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant. I was even presented with a teeny weeny cake with a candle!

I received a fabulous gift from my friend Anne. It is a Pastel portrait of my three boys done by mutual friend and Artist Sarah James. I took it to the picture framing shop to be framed yesterday and can't wait to get it back to be hung in pride of place!

Sarah has recently set up her own Blog and Facebook Fan Page so please pop over and take a look at her pages - she is very talented.

My birthday celebrations aren't over yet! Next week I am having a long weekend in Florence with Hubby!

Before that I will try and get on top of listing new items in my shop. Here is a sneak peak of some of my new creations

I still have a tiny piece of the birthday cake the boys picked for me, so I might just go and finish it off before the return from school!


  1. Happy Birthday!

    I turned 40 this year too and it's fine. I find I can think of myself as a young fortysomething able to let go rather than an old thirtysomething trying to hang on in there!

    Enjoy Florence.


  2. The 40's ROCK!! Welcome! Love the portrait, what a wonderful gift! Can't wait to checkout the new listings!
    Happy, happy Birthday - again!

  3. Happy birthday! Have a fantastic time in Florence, it's a wonderful place :)

  4. Aww what a wonderful birthday & lovely gifts that are all so richly deserved too. Have a brilliant time in Florence - you lucky thing xxx

  5. Happy belated B'day. I turned 40 this year & think its great, my hubby is also still 38 & likes to rub that fact in though!
