What a week! Husband was cutting back the lawn and laying new stones and fabric sheeting round it. A lot of work.
On Friday I officially became an old person at 65. Not that I feel old and we have been so busy with lots of things that I was exhausted and spent my birthday doing housework because……. In the evening my daughter and her husband came to stay for the week end and we all went out for a lovely evening meal at the Jasmine Indian Restaurant in Glenrothes. A very good meal it was. A lot of drunk was drinked and a few sore heads in the morning! At 5 minutes past midnight on 11th June I asked if I could have my presents instead of the morning as we would be busy. I was taken out to the garden. My main birthday present was a potting shed (I know but its what I wanted) and hubby had put a big sign on it and tied a big pink ribbon al the way round it.
On Saturday 12th we had a BBQ for about 20 people. It was great and had a lovely time. I was given lots of beautiful bunches of flowers – I love getting flowers. Lots of other lovely present too. One of my friends who has been doing a lot of work on the house gave me a bunch with the words written on a card’ happy birthday to the 4th best customer in the street. I am glad he didn’t write ‘on the street’ However the dual meaning was taken by all and it caused a lot of laughter.
It was a lovely day. Today we all visited my mother- in- law who is in hospital. 87 years old and she fell and broke her hip. Then we took my daughter and hubby home to Edinburgh, had a meal in the Haw’s Inn at South Queensferry and then home. All is quiet and peace reigns supreme.
