Today is…………… MY BIRTHDAY………….. May 12th

What a wonderful day I’m having.
Hubby put a notice on our lounge window which raises a smile every time someone goes past
and our neighbour gave me some bunting which was put up on the gate

She also gave me a number of other things, including chocolate and a small bottle of Rose wine, but the bestest was a bubble making hoop! I was outside wafting it around and bubbles were going everywhere. I love them and it was such fun!!

At 10am I donned my mask and went round the estate with a tray of biscuits and cakes for our friends. I got trashed by pups and adult dogs alike and reveled in it.
I have received a lot of cards and good wishes, including another from a work colleague of some 19 years ago who never forgets me.

Lunch today was our second stew, but it was followed with cheesecake.
This was almost a disaster as I’d made the base yesterday and got up early to do the rest today. My cheese and cream wouldn’t thicken, so I thought I’d better check I had bought the right stuff else I’d have to go up to the supermarket and buy more of both to start again.
Yep, it was the wrong one, and I’d only got EXTRA THICK DOUBLE CREAM instead of double cream.  Suddenly it all started to thicken big time, so the dessert was decidedly calorie loaded, rich  and absolutely wonderful! I took portions round to our immediate neighbours which left three for us. Hubby managed some too and there is one slice left which we can share if he fancies some more later.

I had a text message from my sister wishing me a happy birthday and saying a card was in the post.

It’s been a good day!
Keep safe everyone…………….. the cheesecakes are on me!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  6. Awwwe! Happy Birthday, Di!! Sounds like you have some great family and friends. I’m intrigued about the bubble making hoop. You must share pictures! …and cheesecake…looks sinfully delicious 🙂

    • I have some wonderful friends. Other brother remembered this year having forgot the last two, and Sis sent a text as she did last year though no card. I haven’t heard from Bro in NZ so hope he’s OK. Nice to get a card from my Aunt though who I write to periodically throughout the year, her daughter will be 65 in September.
      I’ve had a great day though, and the bubbles are terrific!

    Hope you had a wonderful 65th Di. From my perspective, that makes you a “spring chicken” … but I have a plan. If I stop having birthdays, and you don’t, then you will catch me up! Good plan eh! 🙂

  22. TanGental says:

    Happy birthday to Ewe!! Sheepest greetings!! Funny how 65 is an important milestone because of its associations with pensions. Ha! That seems like another world… oh, and if you can’t finish the cheesecake, let me know and I’ll be along!!

    • Piece for you by proxy Geoff. Sadly I won’t get my pension until I’m 66 so have another year to wait. However, Hubby gets his in November! Yay!!!

  23. Happy Birthday! 🎉🎂🎁🎶🥂
