Four Friends @ Forty – Celebrating in style

This year I have FOUR great friends who all turn 40, 2 already have, and 2 more in the next couple of months.

Several years ago we planned a night away in September 2010 to celebrate, and I was very honoured as a “40+3” to be included.

As you can imagine my camera went too – here you go!

The Birthday Girls!

Arriving at Galgorm Manor & Spa

The Room (one of them)

And the View


Gifts, bubbly and strawberries

Ready for the spa!

(No spa photos – you can thank me later girls)

Later it was time for dinner

Some of the delicious food

Dessert and candles

It was a late night …. but the camera wasn’t in use (much)!

Breakfast the next morning

After a walk in the gardens it was time to leave

It was a wonderful time, we laughed, shopped, sang and celebrated.

Thank you A, E, G and L.

Can’t wait for the “Nifty Fifty” celebrations.

  1. wow!! what a wonderful birthday get-away! that is a fantastic idea!! you all looked like you had a blast… happy birthday to all of them!!

  2. Now thats celebrating in style! Almost makes 40 bearable, hey? Actually I honestly think my life since 4-0h has been much superior to the preceding years and at coming on 52 in a week, I can say that the 50’s are even more satisfying. Each decade makes it easier to lavish well deserved pampering on one – in honour of having weathered the storms! Thank God for GOOD FRIENDS!

    Thx to you and your friends for sharing your celebration 🙂 Great Pics.
