Eight two and a half

Over the past few months, I have been feeling a bit meh about my birthday this year, as I will be turning 40.
I always used to consider that as I remember my dad’s 40th and how my mum made a huge deal out of it and it was the first party I went to with adults there. So the fact that it is my turn now feels wrong, it hardly feels like I have been alive for four decades; even if that’s been close on a few occasions.
