Here we are at yet another week's round up of smiles....and trust me when I say I've had lots this week.
First I must thank those who linked up their smiles from last week....our numbers are few but it's always worth seeing what's making our friends smile.
And now my smiles for this week.....
As most of you know I celebrated my 60th birthday this week and this is the banner my daughter and her hubby made to hang up for my party...the photo isn't very clear but there are ten of my favourite black and white photos of me as a child on it so it's very special to me.
Here's a collage of some of the pics taken at my party......I'm one very proud Mum and Nanny. Just check out that amazing cake my daughter in law made for me....isn't it gorgeous?
This is a photo of a very special friend who was able to join me at my party....we have known each other 56 years having started school together at Minsterley Primary.
She moved schools half way through primary school when her parents moved house but we both passed our 11+ at aged 10 years and started grammar school together in the same class at the Priory Girls School.
She left school at the end of year 5 and I stayed on to do A levels.
Without knowing we both applied to go nursing and were accepted into the same intake, shared a room in the nurses home and did our three years nursing together.
We had our families together and have remained best friends throughout.....and all that without mobile phones to keep in contact with each other!
She celebrates her 60th birthday 5 days after me so we are close in very many ways.....Happy birthday Dawn for Saturday. xxxxx
My other smiles for this week are...
Look at the sad state of Milly's little brown dog toy.....she managed to chew her way through the new cover I'd made and pull his stuffing out.....all over the living room floor!!
Ta da! yes I know I'm mad but she can still smell her fav toy through the new cover and I have one happy little friend so it's worth my efforts.
And here's the proof....I will do my best to keep her little toy going for her. She loves to shake it like a rat and throw it around the room herself so life just wouldn't be the same without it...and she's worth it.
There you go. Some of my smiles for this week. It's the fancy dress party tonight for my son's 30th so you may well see a few more pics next week.
