There was no time to put a post on yesterday it was too busy a day. First of all there was a breakfast with friends (we often do this on birthdays) about a dozen of us. Friend W took a group photograph and sent to me - I filed it and now for the life of me I can't find it. When I have a bit more time I will make a search and put it on. In the meantime all I can say is that we had a lovely, happy time.
Then it was home to open my 27 cards (all so very welcome - they do the heart good), make myself a coffee, read The Times and take Tess for a walk. Humidity is very high at present and consequently I am having severe difficulty in walking, so it was a slow, painful walk. Then friend G called, just in time for a cup of tea and a nice chat. While she was there friend P rang from the Lakes as he does every year, put the phone on the piano and played 'Happy Birthday' - I turned up the sound on the phone so that G could hear it too. In the evening my son and his wife came round with a Take Away Pizza meal and we sat and ate that and had a nice, relaxed evening. I had a lovely day - thank you to everyone who helped me enjoy it.
Today has been a damp, miserable day and tonight there is fog (or there was the last time I looked out of the window before I drew the blinds). Tess had her long walk with her dog-walker and best friend J. She had on her new fleecy coat which J bought her and also her new harness which I bought her yesterday. She looked very smart and took her place in J's car on the front passenger seat next to a new friend - a Labradoodle. I succumbed to a toasted tea cake when I went for my morning coffee with friends this morning (and when C came a little later she was tempted too!). This afternoon I have done very little other than sit and read the paper. I switched on the News for the Headlines but then switched off - I have resolved to ignore the election and any effort by politicians to bore my ears off.
Have a good week-end.
