So now the big day itself has passed I’m quickly finding myself in panic mode as time, which once was dragging her feet so slowly, is now whipping along at a breakneck pace. We’re already at the end of January and in two months I’ll be off on the trip where the real 50th celebrations begin. It’s funny how time has a way of doing this – one minute you have all the time in the world, and the next just not enough time to get everything done before you board the plane. But, whatever happens, once I get on the place I’ll be checking out the expertly sourced wine cellar regardless. I’m so excited I feel almost 49 again!
