In September, Carried penned a column for Stellar and said that she and some of her friends, who were also turning 40, had to rethink their grand plans to celebrate because of the coronavirus pandemic.

‘On the agenda: Glastonbury [music festival], a blues & roots festival, a ’90s-themed birthday bash and getting a tattoo,’ she said of their plans. 

COVID-19 also forced the cancellation of the Glastonbury, which was supposed to be it’s milestone 50th year.

‘Instead, I sat in my lounge room “streaming” the best of Glastonbury on TV and taking part in low-key Zoom parties as each of my beautiful girlfriends marked their milestone birthdays,’ she said.

However, she urged people to not cancel celebrations amid an already difficult year.

‘I say we don’t cancel all these milestones, we just postpone… even if Schoolies becomes Toolies and 40ths become 41sts. Let’s still plan these fun occasions, because planning is half the fun,’ she said.
