Whose the birthday Girl ?

I would not normally be advertising the fact that another birthday has crept up on me rather quickly but as this sort of links to my post for next Monday (more later) I decided to let it slip to my fellow bloggers. After all you have become a significant part of my day and I now look on you all as friends. I was pleasantly woken at 7 am with a call from eldest daughter Sam who had stayed up especially to greet me (8 hr time difference). It was lovely talking to you. I excitedly opened up my cards as my grandchildren always make their cards which I love and I just had to share them with you.

This is from Ben (6yrs) I love you Ben you have got my age just right and you wrote so beautifully inside and I loves all the stickers. He must have been reading Sally's post earlier in the week!! so clever.

This is from Mollie see how well she knows me and all my favourite things. The greeting in her card pulled the heart strings, Mollie I would put you and your brothers top of my list of 'loves' and I'd better not leave out your mum and Sam.

This is from Dillon a sophisticated flower beautifully drawn. Beccy before you think I didn't appreciate your card that is also lovely so Thank you all very very much.

I shall be celebrating when Beccy comes tomorrow but I expect I will enjoy one of my favourite things this evening such as a glass or two of bubbly.

When I decided that the baby picture was much better than the up to date version I had not seen that, after the success of last Monday's post (view from front door), the very nice man is suggesting (On Monday 29th January we should each post a picture (or several pictures if you like of ourselves as kids, stating the age we were when the picture(s) was taken!). I'm going to participate so how about joining me I am sure it will be fun. I can see Beccy and I will be hunting out photos and doing a lot of scanning over the weekend. I can't wait to see all the photos and lots of people have already indicated they are participating so don't miss out hop over and let him know you are joining in the fun.

My today is your tomorrow I think. I hope you had a joyous birthday. A picture posted by Sam months ago is burned in my memory..a picture of you in a nurse's uniform. Best wishes for a healthy & content year.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have (had?) a lovely, celebration-filled day. Bring on the champange!

I remember your birthday last year and the wonderful photo of you that Sam posted. I had just started reading blogs back then. Now, a year later, I consider Sam a friend of mine, and feel like I know your whole family a bit. Isn't it funny.

Enjoy your day!

mimi thank you so much for making a comment. How do you manage to keep up 2 blogs. I have had a quick look at them, lovely photos and will be back to read in more detail. If you hadn't 'come out' I would not have discovered you so thank you
