I must get caught up - when I started the "Getting to know you" meme I knew I wouldn't get it done every day, but this is bad, only about one entry a week!

I'll do the next one in a minute.

Must thank louise39 and spikesdeb for their cards - that's what I've spent today doing.  Sticking envelopes is horrid!!  I have got a lot done, and hope to get them in the post tomorrow, but as I have a job interview in the morning, and it's a fair drive, I may be too cheesed off by the time I get home again!

I have had fun with the icons I've done, so far ... and did another couple of small competitions as well - I have some more 20's to do ... including a set on Spike!  Having doen Capt John this month as well - I'm a lucky girl!

Well, this isn't getting Christmas letters written, or my meme updated ... or the next chapter of my fic looked at either!

Hope all is well with my friends - group hugs .... most of us need it to thaw us out!

Happy Birthday

A few of my birthdays have been memorable -

#1 - I hit myself in the eye with a poker!
#6 - Tim was born just after it
#16 - Exams
#18 - Exams
#21 - I got run over the day before, had an exam on the day and my granma died 2 days later (on her 90th)
#30 - I had pneumonia

So, six months before my 40th I told everyone I was going to have a party - to say that Mum and Dad were shocked would be an understatement!

We had the party at my Church in Torquay, and 10 friends did the trip for the evening ... everyone from Church was there, all the family, some extended family - 60ish in total.

We had party games - Nick and Tim organised it ... then Dad got to give a talk as I said he'd never get to do the father-of-the-bride one ... this was his chance.  Unknown to me, they had organised a display of photos through the years, Mum had written a long opoem, Nick and Tim both said something as well.

We sang one of my favourite hymns - "What a Friend we have in Jesus"

Then it was time for the buffet meal - I don't remember eating anything, as I was chatting to everyone.

It was a memorable evening.

The following day, Sunday, which was y actual birthday, both boys + families were there, and after Church we had a great lunch at home, then sat in the garden and chatted.

A great one for th mermory ... and almost 10 years ago (gulp!)
