Turning 38 this year

The kids and me

The kids and me

Turning 38 was a vast different from being 37. Even though I celebrated my birthday with the kids like last year the dynamics was different as priorities have changed since 2015.

Everything seems more intense as radical changes have been made in my life as I break out of my comfort zone.  Learning and acquiring new skills and making adjustments in my current lifestyle to prepare for the changes ahead.

The kids too are moving on  to different stages of the life and are at pivotal points too.

Monkey boy is moving on to secondary school and Tiger girl will be entering primary school next year.

This year it was only the kids and me as R has left the picture.  It was a more cozy atmosphere with less tension and stress as we no longer have to deal with his unpredictability and broken promises.

Eliminating toxic people and behavior from my life has been one of my goals. No longer do I allow people to spoil my mood nor my plans for their own selfish gain.

I’m only spending time with people who value me as much as I value them.

I’ve set up boundaries which I will not hesitate to enforce them if the need arises. I’m clearer about what I want and what I need to get to my desired goals.

How did you celebrate your birthday this year?

Last  Friday Tiger girl and Doggie boy had a very different experience. It was the first time that they attended a fashion event.

We were invited to the launch of Fall/Winter collection by Uniqlo and were excited to see what new pieces there were at the event.

It felt like we were walking through a  Uniqlo store  but more roomy with models parading a selection of clothes.

From Essentials to Work to Sports, Travel and Playtime there were clothes for each different purpose.

The kids clothes section

This was Tiger girl’s favourite section- The Kids section. had some really cute winter clothes. A pity that the kids have outgrown most of the sizes available and the boys are in between their largest kids size and the smallest size for an adult male.

There were also collaboration pieces with designers like Carine Roitfeld  who is famous in her feminine minimalist approach to styling for busy women, including her signature leopard, tiger, and botanical motifs.

This leopard print jacket caught Tiger girl’s eye. She wanted to purchase it but unfortunately it was firstly not for sale nor was there one in her size that was available.

Tiger girl did find something her size however it will only be sold in the shops in a few months time.  She will have to wait patiently till we be able to purchase it.
