Today is my birthday again. How the time does fly. My grandaughter sent me the flowers and they are a delight. I’m very pleased I didn’t buy myself a bunch from Tesco.
The pinny was a mother’s day present. It is reversible. Large so I can wrap it around and it has pockets. I really like a pocket.
As is often the case it seems I can’t remember much about last week.We did however travel to Portsmouth and Fareham last Monday. Dogs all in the car. It was so warm. I realised too late that I should have taken some water with us.
On the way home we called at the charity shop and I bought a tupperware container suitable for putting water in. Of course its pretty much poured with rain since Monday. Do you remember going to tupperware parties and been astonished at the prices? Now you can pick pieces up very cheaply.
They have had an amazing sale selling ladies clothes for one pound each. I bought a couple of new dresses. Washed and ironed ready to go. I also bought a waistcoat like an afghan coat all woolly. I’ve been so cold that I’ve been wearing it. The cat loves it.
Tuesday was the Beacon Cafe. We made Easter hats and little baskets.
Wednesday and Thursday I had a decorator in to paint the hall, kitchen and lounge. I’ve had one wall in the lounge painted slate grey. Its mainly because Trudy likes to sleep on her bed with her legs up the wall. Now I don’t have to wash the wall all the time.The dirt doesn’t show in the grey. Good job all round.
Off to lunch today and then a movie. However I do wish that I had woken up with someone saying “Happy Birthday”with a cup of tea although I’ve had a phone call or two, but that’s not quite the same is it?
