Birthday Bungee!

As many of you may well know, Alex turns 34 today. It’s now an annual ritual for Alex to wake up on this day each year and feel old, miserable and dejected. I then spend the rest of the day trying to make him feel young and vibrant again, or simply try to take his mind off things. God knows what he’s going to be like in many decades to come when he’s actually old! This year my job was made a little easier by the fact that Alex decided to do a bungee jump from the Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown, the worlds first bungee jump. What better way to feel youthful than to fling yourself from a 43m-high bridge! Well done Alex – my brave, wonderful, amazing and crazy man!

    Sarah, you have put me out of my misery. Wonderful. He made it. Cann’t wait to get a first hand report of what that is like.

  • Bev Morfitt

    Wow! Happy, Happy Birthday Alex! You and Sarah are having an amazing adventure and I am really enjoying your blogs. Best wishes.

    That’s an awesome birthday activity! And a very graceful decent I must say!

    Glad you’re keeping him from getting old and grumpy Sarah! Although where were the photo of your jump?!?

    • Sarah

      Haha. I donโ€™t feel old so I donโ€™t need to do one right? ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I was more nervous watching him than he was doing it!

    Difficult to ‘top this’ for his 35th. – another year of excitement and progress. Accept the years and count them not.

    Happy Birthday Alexander, from U David and A Vicky in London! You sure have some nerve ๐Ÿ™‚ That was awesome but scary, even after the fact! Great photography Sarah. Your Uncle is in London on Marks & Spencer business and I am here “playing” with Guy and his girls. Lots of fun for me!

    Wow! What a birthday! And great photos.
    But why does he need to do a bungee jump so as not to feel old when he has you Sarah? ๐Ÿ˜Š
