Happy Birthday to my mother on Fun Monday # 94


I haven't really got time to participate properly in Fun Monday today even though Marmalang is really urging us to get into the Christmas spirit. This is what she wants to know

It's the Christmas season, and I want you to tell us what are your three favorite Christmas Carols and a picture of your favorite Christmas "thing". It could be a Christmas tree, or your mantle, or a church, you in a Santa hat.

I can very quickly tell you three of my favourite Christmas Carols

1 O Little Town of Bethlehem

2 While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks (this was favourite at school because we changed the words-did anyone else do that {while Shepherds washed their dirty socks}!

3 Away in a Manger

I haven't put up any decorations or got my tree up so sorry no photos instead I share a picture of the Birthday girl!


Today my mother is 85 years young. This is a photo I took last week after I had taken her to the hairdressers as a birthday treat.

I'm about to leave for the airport to collect Beccy who is coming to surprise her granny.
However, I think we might well be taking a trip to the doctors because yesterday my mother tripped in the hall and scraped a large area of skin from her shin. I put a dressing on it but she wants the nurse to check it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM

That is just an amazing photo of granny. Oh how I wish I could just fly over to surprise her too. Sorry about the fall - I hope it is nothing too serious. Have fun, my ladies, without me. Love you all...xxx

I just showed Frederic the photo - he said "I love your grandmother, she's the best grandmother in the world"


HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANNY from both of us in San Francisco.

Happy Birthday :) :)

"Jingle Bells" would be mine... there's simply one line about "singing a sleighing song tonight" that makes me laugh out loud... but it's too long a story to even begin to explain why! rofl.

Happy Birthday to your mum - she looks fabulous! And I hope she checks out OK at the doctor's.

Great Christmas carols! My mom (my oh-so-gentle-and-delicate MOTHER) taught me a bunch of goofy parodies and cheesy jokes :-)

Best wishes to your mother.

Something went kablooey with your sign up at mamalang. Typo? Since you're so rushed, I signed you up again. We can't have people missing out on your mother's beautiful photo, can we? (I took a liberty, I know. I hope you don't mind.)

God Bless your Mum, she looks great for her age. You are so lucky to still have her. May she have many more happy, healthy years. Like your choice of carols also.
