kate5kiwis: i fink i'm ready to say the F word


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

i fink i'm ready to say the F word

egads, i'm finally emerging from down inside the rabbit hole - my last assignment (which has morphed into a hundred and fifty page BOOK, complete with photos, maps, documents and anecdotes) on The Social History of Tauranga Primary School is printed and bound and destined for my lecturer on monday.

it's five o'clock somewhere in the world (bottoms up!) and tomorrow is my *FORTIETH* birthday. for which i'm strangely excited all of a sudden.

i'm immensely thankful for my beautiful life, for sunshine, for rain, for my hair which has finally reached my derrière, and for the blessing of fabulous people, all around the world, who continue to inspire me.
*waves hi and blows a kiss*
the hippie happy month starts now X

Happy Birthday beautiful Katie! I loved looking back at your 'hair' story. I too have cut mine short and ended up quickly growing it again. It never feels right short somehow - but I always go for the chop whenever there's a big 'life changing moment' (normally after child birth or the start of a new job - or the end of one!).

I remember a couple of my mother's friends who gracefully carried off their long hair into the Grandma years - and they always had such a wild spark in their eyes too. Live happy and live long.

Happy, hippy Birthday! Sarah x

Hope it was a wonderful day.

We will have to compare the lengths of our hair one day. Mine did something wicked this morning - I was washing it in the shower and I went to walk out and somehow a great big lock of it had twisted its way round the shower lead thing and when I tried to walk out it pulled me back. It took me ages to unwind it!

I keep thinking of having mine cut cos it keeps drooping into things (cleaning the loos is very risky!!!) but can't quite bring myself to do it.

Enjoy your birthday week!

Sorry I'm late to the party. It's been a combination of being busy/being sick around here. Happy belated birthday! We're the same age now for a month. :)

It must be a nice feeling of accomplishment to be so close to completing your schoolwork!
