Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes Indeed! It's my 40th Birthday today, the 29th of November 2007. I think it's kind of incredible to be turning 40 because in no way do I feel 40. Okay, Okay, so I've got some grey hairs and my stomach is getting bigger and I've got aches and pains here and there...which I suppose are signs of being 40!

But really, I don't feel 40 - at least not mentally! I kind of wonder where all the time has gone, but there is no denying it. I'm 40 and its great to be 40!

They say that life begins at 40 but I don't know about that. What I do know is that to coincide with my 40th Birthday, I have a few changes happening to my blogging life.

Firstly, you would have noticed the new "Read More...(Expand this post)" text in red. And if you are reading this, you would have figured out that I can now expand and collapse my posts so that I can fit more posts on the screen. And No, I'm not an IT genius. You too can get this widget for blogspot at

Secondly, it gives me great pleasure to 'announce' that I have been asked to contribute to The Daily Tiffin as a co-administrator for the blog. The Daily Tiffin is the Brainchild of the dynamic Meeta K who is the founder of this blog. Its a blog about family life, food and fun as well as other issues relating to kids and families in general. At last count, there are 13 people that co-administer this blog with around 6 other regular contributors. So that puts me in the company of 18 women!! Now isn't that something special!! :) My very first post on The Daily Tiffin will be out on the 30th November, so please check it out.

Well, nothing major really, just some improvements and new things to write about. I'm quite excited about these changes just like I'm quite excited about turning 40 and hoping to see more improvements in my own life.

So Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday! 40 is the new 30 so you have nothing to worry about ;)
I am looking forward to your posts on the Daily Tiffin (as one of the aforementioned gaggle of regular contributors). You do have a lovely blog here.

Happy birthday...and really..40 is quite young...since I am your elder by nearly 8 years....
oh..and the Daring Bakers story? I was still laughing from Inge's cobra story and I did, indeed spit coffee.

You are getting to be quite the accomplished bread baker.

Happy birthday! (Actually, here your birthday will be tomorrow, so we all get to celebrate twice!) Looking forward to sharing the fun of The Daily Tiffin with you and the rest of the gaggle.

hi! just a random blogger who recently came to know about the daring bakers.

i'm quite interested to see how you tackle the recipes when malaysia's humidity is a factor (especially with the potato bread).

my mum always said to half the butter of any western dessert recipe because the humidity makes everything more oily.

happy birthday!

What I really meant to say was Happy Birthday!
