Weekly Smile: 26 July 2021

My biggest reasons to smile this last week or so include:-

My husband has recently turned 60, so we had a lovely little family celebration with colourful balloons and banners and traditional birthday party finger food – sandwiches, sausage rolls, crisps and other savoury nibbles, followed by chocolate cake with six candles (one for each decade). What fun!

My son came to visit for an extended long weekend that included being here for the birthday celebrations – due to ongoing Covid restrictions across the country this is the first time we’ve managed to meet up this year, and it was so wonderful to see him again. Hopefully it won’t be so long before our next reunion ❤

The new bed we’d ordered was delivered last week, and oh, it’s sooo… comfortable to sleep on. Although I don’t always sleep too well so it’s probably just as accurate to say it’s sooo… comfortable to lie awake on in the middle of the night! 🙂

Fifty Seven and Counting

 My fifty-seventh birthday is today
 I just can’t help but ponder growing old
 Retirement is one short decade away
 I picture what my future life might hold
 Imagining myself in years to come
 No longer working for my daily crust
 I’ll potter in my garden just for fun
 And spare some time for housework if I must
 But hopefully my hobbies will expand
 To fill my days with things I love to do
 Creatively I’ll find my promised land
 Artistically I’ll flourish through and through
 I look ahead to far horizons clear
 A distant ageing world that holds no fear…
