I always feel that there is no point in being disappointed that people do not remember your birthday, if you do not remind them.
Internet, today is my 40th birthday. How would you feel about putting a happy birthday in the comment box?
Go on, make my day.
Let me be the first to congratulate you!
(I was a colleague of Waffle’s till last year and can vouch that she remains eternally youthful – only the insane/myopic/both could possibly confuse her for her daughter’s grandmother or be tempted to give their seat up for her on a bus.)
Many happy returns, Waffle, and I hope to see you very soon!
All the best!
We are exactly two weeks apart – and (not to forget!) one year.
Happy Birthday from Australia! I’ll be joining the same special birthday club in a few months. Scary.
Happy happy! I used to say all my favourite bloggers were 38. Now they are all 40, like me.
I hope your day involves chocolate cake, sleeping late, and time to read a good book. Or at least the chocolate cake. You can save the rest for when The Princess has become prime minister.
HAPPY HAPPY Birthday! I am 40 years and 7 months old, and after the initial shock of OMG I AM AN ADULT NOW, the last month has been significantly easier… In all honesty, I find it to be a lovely number and a fantastic excuse for a big party with loads of champagne. Emphasis on the “loads of champagne”. Bon anniversaire! J.
Happy Birthday! (I was pregnant for my fortieth so no champagne – but it’ s a good age to be, I feel)
Happy birthday, it’s not that bad from here onwards, honest!

happy birthday, waffley! i think i’m late, but it’s still your birthday here in Phoenix!
I’m sure you won’t suffer from lack of birthday wishes.
Happy birthday! I’ll resist the urge to say that 40 is the “new” whatever. It’s always in flux, so I don’t even know anyway. Is it the new 20? 15?
the new 22, I think.
Only months away myself. A horrifying prospect. Hope you enjoyed the day
Have a very Happy Birthday my dear.

Happy birthday. I’m only 10 days away from the same fate, and only yesterday someone asked if a (perfectly nice and spry but completely white haired) man in his sixties was my other half.
Ooops, a day late – Happy birthday!
Happy Birthday! Have been 40 for 2 years now, it is much better than 30 so enjoy!
Happy Birthday! Welcome to the over 40s club (only just in your case. A few in mine)
Happy birthday ! I do not like to get older either, but still I admit to feel bad when people forget about my birthday. Anyway, I’ll turn 50 next year (shhh !), so you are very much younger than I am, which makes you hardly a big girl !
Love to read you, and thank you for making me discover new authors.
Bonne continuation !
Better late than never – happy birthday for yesterday!
A little late, but Happy Birthday!
40 is considerably better than the alternative.
Happiest of birthday weeks to you. Birthdays ending in an 0 should always last at least a week!
Aw! It’s too late but Many Happy Returns all the same! Hope you had a great day!
Happy Birthday and welcome to the club.
sorry its late but I did think of you on your birthday!
hope we’ll catch up soon
Happy Birthday even though it is two days late. On the day of your birthday I was in London with my friend celebrating her birthday on that day so you are in good company! Hope you had a fantastic day.
Can I say that I love each and every one of you? And that’s very tiring when you reach my age, I can tell you.
Am I too late with birthday greetings? Hope you had a good one!
Happy birthday Waffle.
I am rubbish at commenting but I have you on bloglines and read every word there. You’re still one of my top favourite blogs.
A belated happy birthday to you, dear Waffle. I spent a week away from t’internet on a skiing holiday and thought of you on the tenth! Enjoy the journey! – And it’s the same with me as with Norah… you’re on top of my ‘Blogs’nFun’ bookmark list!
Oh drat! 5 days late!
Happy, happy, happy birthday (belated) to one of my favorite authors out there. xo!
Oops. 6 days late. Happy Birthday!
8 days late and counting, but that’s the fun of 40 – the celebrations can last most of the year. 41 on the other hand is quite a drag. Happy Birthday Mrs W and keep on enjoying
