Another year older!

Was it really a year ago today that I hit the big 6 0. So much seems to have changed in the last year. I’ve changed too, probably through my new-found hobby, painting.  I had not picked up a paint brush since junior school and although I had tried doing a painting by numbers I found it too hard to complete. 😬  Now I couldn’t imagine not painting because it has become such a big part of my life. 👩‍🎨

We finally found our forever apartment and both still love it. We have been here just over a year now and after moving 4 times in the previous three years this is a bit of a record. I used to get asked if I had gypsy blood in me forever moving 😬 Although saying that we have bought a caravan but it sits on a site and doesn’t move anywhere 😉 No horse to feed either🐴

It has been a lot quieter this year. No promised birthday trip away, ( Do I really have to wait until I’m 70 now for another trip away 😳 ) Nevertheless I have had a lovely day with my family. I even got a cake! Unfortunately they couldn’t fit all the candles on top, it might have caused a fire hazard 🤷🏼‍♀️

Don’t you just love it when they take the photo when you’re in mid blow! 🙄 Such a good look NOT 😉



  1. Happy Birthday!! Made me chuckle about your comments on the fire hazard – that’s exactly what my mother said when I gave her a cake with numbered candles for her 69th last year (“were you just lazy not getting individual candles or was it a fire risk?”). Perhaps you need to think of a little trip away before the next birthday ‘milestone’ while eating your birthday cake 🙂

  2. Felicitations! Yea, you made it this far, and you will keep on going…whatever would the world do without you after all? I can’t imagine a world without those lovely sentiments and brilliant paintings of yours!

  3. Well I don’t know about you, but I thought when I turned seventy that would be it, I’d be ok. And here it is, I’m 71+ and still kickin’! So another milestone, not sure if that’s a compliment really, it’s not like you’re crossing the Delaware or anything. But here’s to you(holding up a cup of coffee) and many more! 💗💓💕💞🤗🤗🤗
