HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME ... 66 ... CLICKETY CLICK !!! ..........





Sixty six ... clickety click 
Oh dear ... I am now in the wrong half of my sixties !!!
... and I am and have been for a long while, better from the back than the front !!!  haha !!!
Still, it comes to us all and the only way to deal with it is to embrace it ... eat, drink, have fun ... there are still places to go and people to see.

I am the youngest I'll ever be again !!

    3. Haha !!! Your right ... but, in my defence, my hair hasn't changed, in fact, it's been the same pretty much all of my life !!!! I am a bit annoyed that my fringe ( bangs ) has got a bit thinner over the years but I think that's par for the course !! XXXX

  3. Happy, happy Birthday to you dear Jackie - hope your day was truly special and full of beautiful moments. You are still young at heart - and young in years compared to me - but I did love my exciting sixties. Now in my seventies and hoping for many more years - each one better than the one before!!!!
    Love, Mary

  5. I'm sure you'll be pampered today, so enjoy to the full. I was 70 last year, and must admit to finding that a little bit depressing. Otherwise age has never meant much to me, and I'm now working harder, and for longer, than I ever have. Very best wishes, Cro xx

  20. Happy Birthday to you, I like to read your blog but don't blog myself. I am 66 and even though things are going south and there are a few more wrinkles I like who I am at this age (something that has taken a long time)so good luck to you and enjoy a glass or two of bubbly if that is your thing or whatever you like to do. You look lovely by the way and at the end of the day age is just a number. Regards Sue H.

    1. Many, many thanks for your birthday wishes and your kind words Sue and it's lovely to welcome you here ... I really hope that you will comment again . I have never really worried about my age ( although the numbers are now getting rather high, haha !! ) There is nothing we can do about it so we must embrace it !!
      Bubbly has been drunk and will be drunk some more !! XXXX

  24. My birthday is coming up in March.
    You and I will be the same age. 21 :)
    I, in the past 2 years, have had a husband die and my mother. So I am now in the state of mind that I will rejoice every year that I am still here to celebrate a birthday.
    Happy Birthday Sweetie !!

  37. Well, yes indeed, that is certainly one way to put it ("I am the youngest you'll ever be)! Well put! Never considered it that way before and I have to say, you are prob the first person I've ever read/heard talk about being on the "wrong half of my sixties"! You are still blogging, taking photos, entertaining us with your glamour, wit and joie-de-vie so I'd say you are "progressing along" beautifully! :D

    A very happy belated birthday to you too! I hope you did something noteworthy for it? Meanwhile, I really must try to visit my fave blogger people more! That's only a handful but, as you know, all this takes time. You are thought of. happy blogging new year to you too! :)

  38. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much.
