Birthday Celebrations.

sunny

School is pretty dreary nowadays. A whole days timetable that would normally stretch to 3.30 is crammed in by 1pm. There are no breaks and everything is rush rush rush. We wear masks all day when the children are around and the children all wear masks. It's almost impossible to know what they are saying. A lot of our holidays have been removed and turned into working days.

Well today was my birthday, and my friends at school treated me to a surprise birthday lunch after the children went home. Then because we are doing a project about schools long ago, starting from next week, we all made our costumes, got dressed up and rather silly. Still it certainly cheered us all up.

My very romantic husband got in on the act by sending me a surprise bouquet of roses to school. What a lovely day!!!

After school I travelled home on the ferry as the sun was beginning to set.

Then Peter and I went out for a delicious dinner. We had ham and cheese sandwich, jellyfish salad, chicken satay, prawn cakes and a rather chewy cuttlefish cake which I would not order again. All washed down with lashings of Estrella beer - Enid Blyton would be so proud.

Happy birthday! How lovely of your friends to organise that surprise, and of course of your husband to send such beautiful roses!

With the situation and rules/guidance over here, it seems odd to see you and your friends all sitting and standing so close together - here you would be expected to stay 2 metres apart of possible, certainly at least one ;)

Haha Alec. I wish. I'm afraid I've hit 55 years young.

Hi Sarah we probably should have been doing all those things too, though numbers here are currently not too bad. I'd say today was a bit of a lapse because we are all so sick of it. We normally do follow the rules.

Happy Birthday! It looks like a really fun day and the flowers are beautiful. Nothing makes you feel quite as good as flowers.

by Beausoleil

Thank you. Yes I love my flowers. They filled 3 vases at home. Thank you for visiting.

"Thank you, Rosalie.Hope all is good with you."

My birthday was 2 days before yours. I got a birthday card, several phone calls from the children, and my sister phoned and sang Happy Birthday. My husband brought the potted plants in - the christmas cactuses are blooming their heads off. My daughter sent us some cool face masks and it was our night to order in, so I ordered what I wanted without giving my husband a chance to say he didn't want to go there. (I got steak, a huge baked potato, tossed salad, and soup of the day which turned out to be beef stew - I had enough for two days dinners. He got the equivalent of fish and chips - the kid's meal)

Hope you had a great day, Rosalie. Happy birthday.

Happy (belated) birthdayyy!!!

Thank you, Maurizio.

Happy birthday Irene, I see hubby has got you involved in his regular beer habit, new information I read somewhere recently stated that alcohol of any type and in moderation is actually beneficial in dissolving sticky plaques sticking to the artery walls thereby avoiding dangerous blood clots, so don't be shy about ordering a refill......but whose round is it?

Earlier this year I suffered an ocular occlusion in my left eye, it's now sorted out after three Eylea injections into the Macular which banished the clot and drained blurring fluid accumulation restoring normal vision,

So, don't be reluctant to order up that healthy nightcap!

by Bennytheball

Hi Benny glad to hear you managed to get your eye problems sorted. My husband has glaucoma and cataracts so has terrible problems with his eyes. Hope you are surviving lockdown all right.
