I have never thought 30 is a big deal and I won’t let marketing and media get to me. I never had a 30 by 30 list (but then I found myself nodding my head vigorously at this list) and I am not going to the store to buy my first anti wrinkle cream.
The last five years have been pretty exciting. This is my 5th birthday after marriage and out of these 5 I have spent 4 outside India (1 in Singapore and 3 here in Edinburgh).
I know I am supposed to feel older and mature and wise (!) But in my head I still feel about 15. Who doesn’t?
Kiddo has made the largest impact on my maturity levels, if any. After you have a child your priorities are forced to change. Quite ironically, he has brought out the child like qualities inside me yet has managed to turn me into a responsible adult. Life has literally changed after him. The fact that I can cook a decent meal says a lot about my change and those who know me well will agree. I have also in fact, developed quite a liking for eating food and trying out new dishes. The credit for this goes to the Saint and it is going to be his fault if I turn fat. Now can you see how I tend to digress to the topic of food?? 🙂
Anyway, so yeah…30!
The Saint and kiddo have baked me a cake! No help from me. They even searched for this recipe on the net and didn’t use any of mine.
No big surprises and no extraordinary celebration to mark this supposedly important landmark. I believe that is good. 🙂

Hey Happy Birthday 🙂 3 cheers to your Saint ……My 30 is pretty bad i guess that’s because i dont have a Saint and a kid …:( but i enjoy ur blogs so keep writing 🙂
Why? Enjoy your single days! Having a family can tie you down you know! 🙂
Happy 30th! 🙂 The cake looks yum! Good on the saint and the kid for doing that. Makes it all the more special! My 30 is in a couple of years but honestly, I feel like I’m 35 mentally anyway! So I doubt the age will do anything different for me.
Hmmm…good for you? 🙂
Hey, the cake looks great!!! Happy birthday again 🙂
It was yummy, hardly any of it left now. 1 kg cake gone in 2 days! 🙂
I crossed that bridge a long time back. 😦
It feels different but you will get used to it soon. 🙂
I hope so… 🙂
