The other night JJ and I went to an art gallery opening. It was work-related so there were quite a few colleagues there and heaps of other people for the huge space – around 500.
A photographer from The Adelaide Review was taking photos and wanted to take one of my son and I. Without prompting he told her that he was six and, ‘my mum is 40’.
‘Thanks’, I told him. ‘You don’t go around telling everyone my age!’
But would he be on the ball if the same thing happened today? You see I turn 41 today. Where did that last year go? This time last year I was preparing for a huge party.
After she took the photo I gave her my card and asked her to email the photos to me as I don’t get that many photos of us two together.
This year’s birthday celebration is much quieter. I’ve invited some family and a few friends around for a Sunday afternoon session.
