Today is my birthday !

Today is my birthday - hurrah !!!!
I know that when you get to my age you are not supposed to like them or acknowledge them, but not me ! ( I don't particularly like the numbers associated with them - but I just ignore that bit !)
I get to be pampered for a day by my family - which is great. I shall buy some naughty cakes for work and then not do any (work that is)!
We shall have a lovely take away tonight with my favourite aromatic duck pancakes and my family will have to endure board games, because they are not allowed to be nasty to me today and say NO !!!
I have had some great presents - lots of lovely pampering stuff and new handbags and purses !!!! You can never have too many!
Andrew I love my new Maria Wards. Thank you so much for being wonderful and knowing me so well!
My lovely girls bought me beautiful gifts - thank you ! Such a treat!
Well, I hope you all have a great day too!
I know that I will - come what may...

Catch up

It's late and I should be getting into bed. But as Matt reminded me tonight, I haven't been posting my thoughts lately. So, here I am! I've had quite a busy time lately. Here there and everywhere. I had a lovely time on the Isle of Wight with my family over the Easter week. Can't believe that my sis is now 50!!! Of course, I am so very much younger than she is... I'm now back at work and it's feeling very sad. My section is being disbanded as they are moving the work to London and no-one wants to go. We are all being given new posts and are going our seperate ways. It's tough. We've had lovely time all together. My staff are great people who are supportive and fun. I guess that nothing stays still for long and it will be good to have a new challenge... (Yes, if I say it often enough I might believe it...) Photo is some of the staff at Christmas. Yes, Father Christmas always comes to our party!
I'm planning to have a big party in the summer at my house for all my staff and their partners, but please don't mention to Andrew yet, I haven't told him!!! Should only be about 120 people!
Still, my birthday on Thursday, so cream cakes all round.
I shall say goodnight now. Sleep tight and sweet dreams...
