Well its official, at three minutes after midnight I opened my cards and some presents and realised that life begins at 60 or should that be 40!  …. Or get this my eldest daughter Catherine says that 60 is the new 40 !

Confused, hmm me too. Do I feel any different? Nah. I am a little bit miffed that I have to wait another six years to draw my pension now that the pension age in England has changed from 60 to 66, but such is life.

Do you think I am writing different now, more moaning and whining maybe? It’s my age you know ! Just joking, honest.

Anyway I have had a great day, my birthday is going on for days and days 🙂 my youngest daughter Louise came to see me with Ruby and Seth (my grandchildren) and brought me some lovely gifts…. a lot of which are angel related because they know how much I love my angels. Tomorrow I am having lunch with them along with my mum and of course John.

I can’t believe it is the Chinese New year tonight, Chinese is my favourite food but due to my local takeaway being closed I have resorted to buying half a shredded duck with pancakes from the supermarket for this evening. Yummy, hopefully.

My eldest daughter face timed us online as she lives 50 miles away. Charlie had a trampoline party this morning then went out for lunch. I was then presented with an envelope  from Louise which had a card inside which read

To Mum,

On Saturday the 11th of February you are invited to spend an all expenses paid weekend away with your daughters in a 5 star cottage in The Yorkshire Dales So here’s to making many happy memories and to give you lots of new material to write about!

Lots of love,

Catherine and Louise.

My response was thank you very much, that will be lovely. It is sometimes difficult to have good chats with them with children running round, so I am sure we will have a great time. Please can I be 60 every week. ;-
