    Mine's November as well and so far
    I'm having a black tie party at a local hotel and quite a few of us are staying over.
    Me and about 30 of my girlfriends are having a meal in a private dining room at lovely Italian restaurant.
    Me and DH are going away to Liverpool for a weekend with 3 other couples
    and I'll be going on a night out of some description with my mummy friends

    I've only just turned 40 but already know what I want to do for my 50th!

    I couldn't have a massive party for my 40th as my children are little and logistics were just too difficult with me being separated too so I am definitely definitely doing a massive massive party and inviting everyone I know!

    I always knew exactly what I wanted to do , celebrate in a seedy club in Berlin which had all been organised. But unfortunately one of my friends who was really looking forward to it died of a bleed on the brain 3 months ago at 50 and I really can't face doing it without him been there. Hence everything having to be reorganised .x

    Mine's a while off but Mr S had a bit of a family daytime do especially to accommodate elderly relatives. We went on a historic boat ride following a picnic, and then had tea in a historic tea rooms (catered by them rather than all buying our own).

    I want to go to Australia, but am having problems convincing DH that we can afford it! The kids all want to come too which will bump the price up, how can I have a great time without taking them too?

    Mine, we went out to dinner a deux. I primed DD with the information that I'd like a party but couldn't face the organisation, and she told DH I didn't want one.

    However, I took him to Paris for a long weekend for his so still got my trip!

    No idea what my life will be like in 2014, when I'll be 50. I hate parties so definitely NOT having one!!!

    Re: What did you do for your 50th birthday ??

    I took my Mum to New York for her 50th. Just me and her, it was lovely.

    It's my 40th next year and I'm not having a party. I love parties but it's a lot of hassle and expense for other people to have a good time so instead, we're going to Chicago. Just me and DH for a long weekend away and I can't wait!
