60 years young!

This beautiful bouquet of flowers
was received yesterday
from my lovely friend

It was a day of surprises!

Our son Dave purchased and prepared
the ingredients for a lovely chicken stir-fry
followed by a cheescake
complete with 60 in numbers and lit up!

I have some huge sunflowers, a thoughtful gift from the above-mentioned son too.
And some lovely cards.
A webcam conversation with our four grandkids....complete with giggles!
(Now that they are living a distance away from us visits are less frequent and as
nana's birthday fell on a school night we'll have to celebrate my birthday on another night.)

It was a lovely day and I dutifully followed the instructions on Dave's card to me....
60 TODAY...put your feet up!
and discovered a new-to-me author Maeve Binchy and her novel
"The Copperwood Tree" (borrowed from the local library and finished in two sittings!!).

Now I'll be entitled to a free bus pass too!
What more could a girl want, eh?

Best of all....I've also got a set of CD's coming from hubby (ordered and coming by post)
of hits of the 60's. I'll be able to bop along while doing the ironing. Such fun!
