..................... but not necessarily wiser and thankfully not deeper in debt as one old song says.
Thank you to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday yesterday. I was trying to keep it a secret!
As I share my birthday with my youngest granddaughter....she's 3........ I'm ancient.......yesterday morning we met up for cake and present opening.
By the time my next birthday comes round I will have gained another grandchild as Eldest Daughter in Surrey is due to produce a little brother or sister for 5 year old Jacob in September. Something else to look forward to. That will be five Grandchildren under 6 years old - what fun! I can imagine chaos when they are all between 6 and 12 and visit all at once.
With all those birthday and Christmas presents I'm glad I'm now old enough for my State Pension! According to the website everyone should get a letter but I didn't and with all the moving and address changes it didn't seem to worth chasing up beforehand so that will be on the job list if ever I get moved.
Would you believe sometimes I feel I'm slowly losing the will to live!
But making an effort to look on the bright side.........................................
This week I have been grateful for
- Somewhere to live until May 10th
- 2 swimming sessions - so good to get back in the pool.
- Lovely birthday presents and cards from the family
- Some fine weather even though it's been a tad chilly
