Another Year Older

I wasn’t going to do a post about my birthday but I had such a good day that I couldn’t let it go without a mention. My lovely darling eldest daughter took me out to Saffron Waldon for a lovely day of shopping, lunch at a Tiptree restaurant (one of my favourite places for lunch) 



and a cream tea in the afternoon.  





Back home a beautiful bouquet of flowers had arrived from my darling youngest daughter in Australia. I’m a lucky mum and grandmother, my grandson got me some gorgeous body lotion, hand cream and Green & Blacks chocs - he knows me well :-) 




Saffron Walden is a pretty market town in Essex. It retains a rural atmosphere and appearance and has some fine buildings dating from the medieval period.



My birthday wasn’t confined to just one day, the following day I went out with some friends for an Indian meal, and yesterday I had an overnight stay meeting up with some friends that I started working with 25 years ago!! We get together twice a year. 
Back down to earth now with lawns to mow and a garden and allotment to tidy up and..... a dentist’s appointment, I can feel my heart beating faster and the anxiety creeping in just at the mention of it……..

  2. What a wonderful way to spend a Birthday - I really can't think of anything that would improve it! I like to spread my Birthdays out too, one day just isn't long enough. I hear you regarding the dentist, I have an appointment next week, just a check up but I'm already fretting about it ...

    1. Thank you Giac. The dentist wasn't too bad, most of the work had been done on the previous visit, but I still needed an injection to fit the infill.
