Let me introduce myself......

Ok, so after months of deliberating, I've finally made a blog - yay me!!  I'm still tweaking it so it may keep changing but my general witterings will stay the same!

Basically, I'm hoping to use this blog as a sort of mood board for my everyday life.  You'll find my favourite recipes & wines, book reviews, beauty product reviews & well, a bit of everything that I love! You'll also realise pretty quickly how I'm really not looking forward to turning 40......I certainly didn't give my permission for this milestone to suddenly creep up on me like it has - it just sounds so very grown up, not at all how I feel!  I got my blog name from a scene in Ab Fab where Eddie's ex Marshall is in town with his American wife Bo.  She starts to hyperventilate when asked about turning 50 & Marshall states that she hasn't started 'fifty therapy' yet!!  I remember thinking, "yup, that'll be me when I'm about to turn 40!"  so I'm hoping this blog will serve as my very own Forty Therapy!!  Anyhoo........

I really enjoy reading other blogs & feeling like I'm getting to know the blogger through their words but I've decided to make this a bit easier for you by compiling a list that pretty much sums me up in 29 bullet points.........

  • Favourite colours are red & black
  • I am a self-confessed beauty product junkie
  • Favourite patterns are leopard & polka dot
  • I hate bad manners & rude shop-assistants/doctors' receptionists/waitresses etc
  • The best noise is the glug glug of wine pouring at the end of the day
  • I'm a rock chick through & through......unless we're talking about Robbie Williams......I love RW!!
  • Favourite films are Thelma & Louise & Grease
  • Favourite tv show is Friends (yes, even now!)
  • I can't stop buying cook books
  • I love to cook & especially bake.......& then scoff said baked goods!
  • Favourite tipple is red wine, Shiraz for everyday or Chateauneuf du Pape for special occasions
  • I despise tea, I'm a cawfee girl, always have been, always will be
  • I love winter & cosying up in front of the fire
  • I never have bare toe nails....ever, nail polish all the way!!
  • Stationary shops have a strange magnetic draw for me.  Stick me in Paperchase for an hour & I'm a happy camper!
  • Rome & Marrakesh are next on my list of places to visit
  • I love Disneyworld!!
  • Peonies & tulips are my favourite flowers.
  • I don't like roses, chrysanthemums or carnations
  • I'm very envious of arty, creative people
  • I was a beauty therapist & makeup artist BC (before children that is!)
  • I never leave the house without mascara.....I've tried.....I don't like it, I felt naked......
  • Married in Las Vegas in '96, still love my man like crazy :)
  • I love to read & have a ridiculous amount of books & adore my Kindle app on my iPad
  • I'd really love an old VW Campervan....but it must be red with cream leather seats & Cath Kidston curtains!
  • Facebook & Twitter ARE my social life now.....sad, I know......
  • I'm totally addicted to Pinterest, espcially the wedding boards...which is weird seeing as I've been married for 17 years!
  • My kids rock!!
  • In my head, I'm still 18 & a size 8.......& then the mirror is evil & shows me the truth!

So, that's pretty much me.  I hope you keep popping back to read my ramblings whether they be short or lengthy!
