Reaching Half A Century!

 “At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” - George Orwell
Welcome to my 50th Birthday Party 🎈
Time to open the cards and presents!
Now to get dressed.
(thermal vest goes on)
Then it's Breakfast and Brew time!
I have 2 lovely cards and presents off my two sons.
Now to leave the house....
I gives hubby a wet sloppy one before I leave.
Two winter hats and big gloves go on.
I put on my lights.
Now for the fun to start!
The High School has got a TE day.
The other 3 schools are still open.
I had lots of Happy Birthdays greetings.
It might have been quiet for traffic,
still got cars doing the Limbo under my stick and just looking up to see if I can hit their car roof as they go under....
BOING,BOING,BOING went my stick!
At least I finished in one piece.
Picks up newspaper on the way home.
Dropped off the newspaper.
Now back out.
Coffee & Chat time.
Both of my friends were there,
(Who I chat to in the afternoon!)
More lovely cards and hand cream :)
Chat, coffee and toast :)
Once finished we all said to each other.
"See you later Alligator!"
Back home I go.
Now to put all the cards on display!
My younger brother dropped in a Birthday card through the letter box on Saturday.
He must have forgot my first name, as he just wrote Sister in my card!
Then back out for Round 2.
It forecasted rain while doing it.
On goes the sexy lumo trousers.
On goes the boots, two hats, and waterproof gloves.
I turn on my lights, and walk back to my two friends waiting.
Time for a Rabbit....
As soon as I say "Goodbye!"
It starts to rain.
On goes the hood.
I was crossing a dog walker over the road.
When the dog wouldn't go any further, the woman wasn't looking where the lead was, and tripped over the lead, straight on her face she went, I was in the middle of the road.I helped her up.
"The dog is frightened of your big stick,"She said dragging the dog past me.
I replied,"Most car drivers are frightened of my big stick as well!"
Lots of BOINGs been given out as some cars were just driving under my stick.
At least I finished in one piece.
Still raining!
Back home.
Now to get ready for the meal later on.
Hubby comes back for a wet one.
Time for rain mac....
3 Mixed Grills.
(I had sweet potato fries)
1 Lasagne.
I was too full for dessert.
The Kids still had their desserts.
We got home.

Back To Reality!

There are two types of people: those who walk into a room and say, "Well, here I am,"and those who walk into a room and say,
"Ah, there you are." - Frederick Collins 
Welcome to my Sunday love Lie-in 💓
Made full use of that bed!

Now to use the lovely shower.....
That's better!
Nice views from our bedroom windows!
Now to go down for breakfast.
While we were waiting to seated, the woman who was well pissed last night, looked me up and down. I just returned her stare when we sat down!
Breakfast is served!
Where are the beans?????
Once I had finished my third cup of coffee.
(They used Full Fat Milk, as I was worried I had to fetch my pint of milk from my bedroom)
Back to the bedroom to pack and hear my Birthday Dedication on the radio...
As for this special Birthday of mine...
The Hawaii Five 0 Intro was playing in the back ground....
All packed up and ready to leave.
Hubby paid the bill.
We loaded up the car and went for a walk down to the pond.
Then back home we went.
Cake and balloons were ready for tomorrow.
Once we unpacked.
Back out in Sexy Beast. 
There was still queues for petrol, so I couldn't get to check my tyres.
On the way to the garden Centre,
My Birthday Request was read out again.
They played a great song...
(which is at the end of this blog post)
I got some plants for me, and some for my parent's grave.
Now for a look around...
After I got my plants, I nipped into Co-op to get some reduced veg for the soup this week.
Next onwards to see my parents.
I hope they like the daffodils I put on their grave.
Back home.
I gave my daffodils some water.
Soup maker was put on....
Coffee time.
Soup was ready!
Once the tumble drier had finished.
We sorted out the dry washing.
Not before the washing machine had to go back on again!
Hubby sorted out the tea for tonight.
I caught up with yesterday's blog post.
We had a nice Roast Chicken Dinner.
As normal I was late taking a photo of it!
My presents and cards are building up!
Everything was put back into Sexy Beast.
As it might be my Birthday, but it is also back on that Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡
We caught up with 
"Dragon's Den"
