So this (in accordance with internationally recognized standard) the 'birthday blog'.
So I'm 40. This is generally assumed to be a 'turning point' in your life, a time to recollect and review.
I've actually had this post in draft for some time - with nothing in particular that made sense to write. The funny thing is that while I'm supposed to feel that this day is significant I'm really ambivalent about it - no particular regrets and no particular significant 'looking forward' I wonder if that's important in itself...?
