How old am I?

I was born at 12:02 AM on July 18th in England. This means that, given the 7 hour time difference between the UK and Utah, I have technically been 32 since 5:02 PM this afternoon in Utah. However, there is an 8 hour time difference between here and Norway, where I have celebrated the majority of my birthdays, and there my birthday officially started at 12:02 AM Norwegian time, which is 4:02 PM in Utah. So in Norway, I have been 32 for almost six hours when I post this.

And yet, somehow as I sit here in Utah, I am 31 and will be for the next two hours and twelve minutes. Does this make me ageless? I am going to say yes.

So happy birthday to me! (I think?)

How I spent my birthday eve.
I tried to take an official birthday photo for you, but it seems those only look presentable on your actual calendar birthday in your own timezone. Otherwise you end up looking like a horse-man. Or maybe that's just me? 


  1. I was 29 when you were born, and I'm 39 now, so work it out for yourself.
    Love from Mummy

  2. Hope you are having a great day. Go treat yourself to some yarn

  3. YAY! Happy birthday!

  4. Happy Birthday Tamsin! I have that same awesome situation with my birthday - I just celebrate for a day and a half - and I love it. (Born in Singapore.) Hope you have a great one!

  5. Aj aj aj - happy birthday som var!! Sorry I missed it. Håper du hadde ein strålande dag!
