Happy Birthday to a Great Lady!
Today (the 17th Jan) is her actual birthday and so the house is full of flowers, cards, balloons and gifts. Some very dear friends, knowing her love of all things homely and made of china, gave her this tea set in which each piece is labelled 'joy' 'hope' or 'peace'. Others have clubbed together to give her a travel voucher, so I don't know where she will end up! All in all a tremendous experience and a great start to a new decade.
Our forties were really hard, marred by my serious ill health. Our fifties were just as tough as we laboured together through over 60 hospital admissions and countless operations. Boy are we looking forward to our sixties! (You realise, of course, that I married an older woman - but not by much!).
Happy Birthday wonderful lady!
