Yes, finally I have reached the grand old age of 25.

I think it has a ring to it. 'Hi, I'm 25. Quarter of a century old, yup that's me'.

Lots of people, Marek included, seem to think that once you get past 25 age is something you stop talking about. You're old enough to know better.

I disagree. Now I'm getting to my late twenties instead of being stuck in my early twenties I'm hoping people will consider me for jobs I'm qualified to do instead of giving me the 'but she's so young' response. I'm hoping people will take me just that bit more seriously instead of writing me off as 'just an inexperienced girl'. I'm hoping I'll start taking myself more seriously.

Of course I still feel fifteen inside, but that's not going to change until I'm at least 26.

Ruuuth!! I just picked up the parcel you sent me from the post office. THANK YOU so much for all the goodies inside :o)

You are the queen of present giving.

The bag is gorgeous, the scarf is perfect for this Polish weather, the bangles are great fun and the purse is beautiful. Thank you, thank you thank you!

Happy Birthday! I'm sure the present didn't reach you, but I realised I totally forgot to label it in any way... So the one you have no idea who it's from, that's from me. Hope you like it.

Have a great day! I guess I mean evening, what with the time zones

Happy Birthday and many happy returns from a fellow Brit. Forced to draft this as anonymous for security reasons but I will only post from now on in this blog.

Keep 'em coming.

Thanks Efe, or should I be calling you Monef? :) You mean it doesn't change after 26??

Anon, thanks to you too. Very mysterious. Are you Prince William? Even if you're not, you could call yourself that and then I'd know it was the same anon each time.

Already told ya on msn but feel the need to add to the blog....HAPPY BIRTHDAY (albeit belated) BOODLES!!

25 is no biggie...especially as the feeling 15 theme runs through me also.

plus if u ever do feel old....u can just lie, u are blessed with that sort of face and even if u weren't, u could always stick to your chosen number come hell or high water (is that the right saying? i dont get it) hehehehe

All the best chica!

Oh wow, two boodles mentions on one post. I'll never live that one down...

You're right about the lying option though I have looked the same since I was fifteen, or earlier. Maybe that's why the 15 thing stuck. Hmm.

happy birthday becca, i know i'm a few days late, however i had planned on calling you on your birthday but i then realised that i didn't have your phone number in poland, you know i perfer to use the phone. anyway 25 is not the time to take yourself more seriously, in fact you should take yourself less seriously, seeing as 1/4 of your life is over it only leaves so much time to be silly and laugh. anyway happy birthday again hope you had a great time.

Well I'm a great believer in being silly and laughing.

Thanks for the birthday wishes Steve. You know we're planning to come to Canada in May so for sure we (or you) will have to pop across the border and catch up.
