Celebrating my 60th!

Enjoying my 60th Birthday. Wow, I can't believe I'm saying that! Not so long ago that would have made me a pensioner, but now I have several more years to go. But at least I get free prescriptions now :-) I look on growing old as a privilege so many people never get to have and consider myself lucky to have reached this age with not too many trials and tribulations through the years and very lucky to have the love and companionship of my lovely Ian for the last 13 years. Looking forward to the next 20 years with joy and excitement :-)

Also looking forward to my super stepdaughter Caitlin, together with her lovely husband Dan and my absolutely amazing grandson Jonah, all coming for a special birthday lunch of roast leg of lamb, which Ian has been preparing all morning. Caiti is supplying the pudding, which I don't know what it is so that will be a nice surprise. ( I hope, she once made banoffee pudding which had to be dug out of the dish with a hammer & chisel!) Only joking :-)

I'm feeling very lazy today as really we should be doing a lot more packing today as it's only 4 weeks at the most until we move house. But frankly as today is not only my Birthday but Easter Day I'm determined to just relax and enjoy it, and not worry too much. Will just have to put in an extra effort in tomorrow as we're back at work on Tuesday! I can feel that old Tempus Fugit even as I write!!!!
