Does Life Begin at 40? (Competition)

by mediocremum on 10/06/2013

Print Friendly

To celebrate the release of ‘This is 40‘ by acclaimed writer, director and producer, Judd Apatow, we’re giving one of my readers a chance to win a Does Life Pegin after 40?copy of the DVD and a £100 voucher from Red Letter Days.

The film itself, a ‘sort of’ sequel to Knocked Up,  follows a married couple played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann as they struggle with the changes of life as they turn 40 and the alterations that occur in their relationship and family dynamic – all with hilarious consequences!

I turned 40 a couple of years ago.  I know a lot of people fear it but for the first time in my life I finally feel  comfortable in my own skin and am thoroughly enjoying it so far.  My body is doing a few things I’m not too happy about; rogue hairs, cellulite and gravity but now I just find myself laughing it off!

We’d love create a list of  ‘The Ultimate 40 things to do after you’re 40 list’.  To enter the competition simply leave a blog comment via the rafflecopter form below stating what your ‘Ultimate thing to do after 40 would be’.   Additional entries are also available.  The winner will be chosen at random.  We will then generate an Ultimate Top 40 list from your suggestions.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

A full list of Terms and Conditions can be found at the bottom of the form but in short it’s open to UK residents only aged 18+.

Good Luck!

As me and my wife had children quite young when I am 40 my son will be 18 and hopefully we will be able to leave him at home, so me and my wife can go trekking around Macha Pichu, its something we have always wanted to and I think it will be romantic for us both.

Skydive, always wanted to do that and as I’m already over 40 it’ll have to be a “thing to do before I die” rather than “thing to do after 40″ cos that’s everything now.

The ultimate thing I’ve done since turning 40 was go to my first rave. I non-stop danced for 12 hours, putting my 17 year old son to shame.
My ultimate thing to do now I’m 40 would be visiting the rainforest in Borneo, not somewhere I’d have taken young children but now they’re old enough to be left home alone…
