Is it a rose between two thorns or, a thorn between two roses. I know what my answer is.

I know you’re taking my photo, but I’m not gonna look. This is my best side.

A Secret Well Kept


A big thank you to all my friends and family who did such a great job of setting me up for a surprise meal to celebrate my birthday

A big thank you to my wife who arranged it all and managed to keep me in the dark until we arrived in the restaurant, even though she was getting stressed waiting for the taxi. And then, when he arrived, tried to make him take the long way to the restaurant to allow the other guests extra time to arrive.

A big thank you to my granddaughters and great granddaughters, who played a blinder by coming and visiting me just a couple of hours before, knowing they were going to see me later. I didn’t have a clue.

A big thank you to my granddaughter for making my birthday cake, cakes I should say as there were those lovely cup cakes to support the Camera Cake.

Camera Cake – Baked at ISO 60 (ISO = I’m So Old)

A big thank you to all my friends, family, relatives, acquaintances, colleagues, indeed everyone that have wished me well via the many cards, phone calls, texts, Facebook messages.

You ALL made it a truly special day.

To all of you I say,

THANK YOU

I LOVE YOU ALL


Birthdays


Today is being celebrated by our family on two sides of Planet Earth.

Here in the UK it is my Aunty Kathy’s 90th Birthday. We had a celebratory gathering on Sunday but I know Kathy is out with her daughter today. Hope she has a lovely day…..

Happy Birthday Kathy xxx

Also celebrating today, way down under, in the antipodes is Caitlin. Living down in Perth, W.A. Although we cannot be there to help her celebrate we are thinking of her. Here’s hoping she also has a lovely day ….

Happy Birthday Caitlin xxx
