OMG.....60 TODAY !!!!!




Well..... what can I say.....I have reached the ripe old age of 60 !!!! I actually don't believe it and must check my birth certificate.....perhaps my mum and dad got the date wrong 'cos, I'm sure, at the most, I'm only 30..... but then, that can't be right because I have children of that age !!!! Oh well......60 it is and I shall embrace it with as much alcohol as I can !!!! I have taken a quick photo this morning, as the one on my profile was taken at our son's wedding and that was a couple of years ago now. Can't be pulling the wool over your eyes now, can I ?  This one is nicely out of focus which, when you get to my age , is a neccessity !!!!
I was going to say 'here's to the next 60 years' but that's not possible so, here's to many, many more years of fun and laughter and good times, not just for me but for all of us.

CHEER'S !!!!!!





Jackie

  48. Happy, Happy Birthday! Your out of focus picture is to funny. You know what they say, "Its not how old you are, but how old do you feel?" From reading your blog, I would say you feel very young. And remember, age is just a number. You look Marvelous Darling!

  50. You're beautiful --- in focus as well as out! Don't let anyone tell you any different. Life is too short to blend in. Now go out and make a "statement!" Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  51. A very happy birthday! Hope you get lots of treats. And truly, madly, deeply you DO NOT LOOK 60. I don't care that that pic is out of focus. You could have told us you were 40 and I'd have believed you. xx

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dear Jacqueline, What a brave posting! To reveal oneself to the world is surely the mark of someone who is self-assured and courageous enough to face whatever Life brings their way. Your photograph speaks to me of a woman with great style, sharp intelligence and a contentment with self that inspires others to be so too. Happy Birthday...not a day over 30 in mind I am sure...but with all the charm and grace that only maturity gives!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Happy, Happy Birthday!
    Remember, 60 is the new 40.
    I celebrated my birthday a couple of days ago so I see we are both of the same sign...I think that means we are Forever Young!
    Have a wonderful day of celebration.
    Happy, Happy Birthday to you!

  130. I loved the post! I too have a birthday this year ending in a zero. I refuse to cut my hair, I know my Mom does not approve, she thought late 20's I should cut my hair, add 20 years . . . funny math. 50! I'm inspired by women that keep it young and hip, okay that dates me. Red wine, chocolate, good books, and clothes . . .

  131. I'm so ashamed I'm the 136th person to wish you a happy birthday & I'm so absolutely tardy. My dear friend, you are just as beautiful inside as you are on the outside and I wish you many, many more decades of laughter, & love. Once that grandbaby comes you will be in love all over again and a whole new world will open up. I just know that in 2011 we WILL MEET!!

  133. I echo everyone else's general opinion that you don't look anything like your age! I am not far behind at 57 and didn't realise I had so many wrinkles until I got my new varifocals last week! Like you I think I must have slept through my 30s and 40s - where did they go?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Dearest Jackie, Happy Birthday!! Late to the party however I suggest you add some sparkly!

    I have a couple of years to go, I am thinking that after the 30th decade that the 60th may be the best of all.

    Think of the culmination of what great friends we have gained all over the world. Amazing really, just as you are!

  136. Damn damn DAMN! I missed your birthday. So it is very belated happy birthday wishes from me here in Toulouse :) I shall open a bottle of champagne in your honour tomorrow night (it's already too late tonight and I'm sipping tea of all things ;-) and raise my glass to the next 60 years. Who says you won't be enjoying life in another 60 years.
    My Mummy is 60 in April and so is another of my best friends. They are both convinced that is a magical year. I'M SURE it will be for you too darling Jackie

    Much much much love, bisous to overflowing and endless joy

  140. OH. MY. GOODNESS.

    How did I miss this? Happy (belated) Birthday you gorgeous woman! I'm 40 next month (and dreading it) but you are looking so fine (said in an american accent!) I need to rethink my strategy. Clearly you are only as young as you feel. You look fabulous!

    Hugs, B xxx

  141. Oh no I missed your birthday.
    Well I do so hope that you had a wonderful time and were completely and utterly spoilt by everyone who knows you, especially those who love you the most.
    You know Jackie, your one of those women that I greatly admire for reasons you may not be so sure of, but bear with me on this one. You see your a little more mature than me (I'm 48) and when I have seen photos of you on this blog I am always amazed by your natural beauty. I personally don't see a woman who is 60, but rather a woman who has embraced the fact that the age process is part of life. You have a lovely style and are dare I say it a beauty.
    You also have this wonderful sense of fun and that life is for enjoying and that is wonderful to see in an age where so many women are into fakery to the extend that it is now becoming harder for women to embrace age or to find women that have.
    Younger and younger women are turning to fakery and it is a shame that more women are not more like you.
    I hope that hasn't offended you in anyway.
    Much love and belated birthday wishes
