Thanks for popping in. Been a long old birthday at the NEC, I can tell you! Got up to Birmingham really early, and yet STILL didn’t leave the building till 7pm. So much space – and yet it was still too small! Still too cramped. We grow into space, don’t we! It’s like at our house. I’ve got a walk-in wardrobe which you can’t get in because it’s so rammed full. And I can’t get into half the clothes either! Ah well. Not about to lose any sleep over that particular issue – especially after the lovely meal and birthday cake with good friends this evening! Life is too short. And when I think that I have been around 60 years now, that’s a miracle! It really is, when you think about it. When you consider how fragile the human frame is. When I reflect on how negligent I have been, how little I take care of myself, how I danced, smoked, drank and and partied my way through England and Europe in the 70‘s and 80‘s – it really is a miracle I’m still here! Glad I am though…..
Many many thanks for the kind birthday wishes, the lovely cards and gifts. Grace and Mark called from the States today, and Mum sang Happy Birthday to me over the phone early doors. All in all a most enjoyable day.
And while we pedalled up and down aisle D at the NEC , Maria was doing a super job at Hochanda. Great job! She was in the Art Nouveau Zone, and judging by sales, so we’re you! Wow!
Here are the sets Maria was showcasing :
Time to hit the hay. Do I feel any older? I can’t lie. 60 is a biggie for this old bird. Feels like a door has closed somehow. Not sure what that’s about. But do I feel any older? Don‘t know. Ask Dave!
Love and hugs,
