HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME !!! ..........







It's February 1st which means it's my birthday !!! Sixty seven years young ... way past my mid sixties which is a bit of a scary thought but, hey, time won't stand still so I'm embracing it ... trouble is, they seem to be coming round a bit too fast for my liking !!!

But, there are people to see, places to go and, I shall never be this young again !


What do I look like !!! I think that I was too long and lanky for a party dress and a silly bow in my hair !!!

    1. Thank you so much Mary .... I don’t mind how late it is, it’s so kind of you to think of me.
      I think I was getting a bit too old to wear party dresses in that photograph .... or too tall although I think most of us are the same age. XXXX

    2. I am utterly convinced that it does look so good! I know what you mean - but that is typical "us", overhypercritical - and: motion brings exuberance, spirit and soul look through the eyes! Sparkling! Splendid! XXX Britta

  22. Your "long and lanky" is what I would call willowy and delicate .. you look like you would have made a perfect Ballerina ..or a model..
    My mom was all arms and legs ... with freckles on them lol ... I think it is a wonderful look to have ..
