As the saying goes “Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional” and in my case that is so very true.
I’ll be 50 in just a few weeks
I can hardly believe it’s been a year since I started this blog and set my self the task of completing 50 challenges by the time I’m 50. And while I’ve still got to update a few of these challenges I can tell you now that I haven’t managed to complete them all
I should hang my head in shame. No – not me. I’m never one to give up.
Because while I’m a year older but I’m not any no wiser
I’m going to keep going. Keep going until I complete them all. And top of the list is still to raise £5,ooo for charity.
So instead of burying my head in the sand and pretending it’s not happening I’m going to embrace turning 50 by celebrating my birthday with a combined birthday party and charity fundraiser in support of the Charlie Cookson Foundation.
Everyone is invited – family, friends, neighbours, Charlie Cookson supporters.
As well as the usual party essentials like food, drink and entertainment there’ll also be raffles, tombola’s and a charity auction.
So come along and join in the fun because as Pablo Picasso once said
It takes a long time to become young
or in other words
Smile while you still have your own teeth
