I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

Green Wing


I'm sure you all know by now but just in case - The Green Wing series 2 starts on Channel 4 at 9pm on Friday March 31st. Hurrah!

Later: Well, I have just had a brilliant afternoon, visiting Dons and catching up with her step-father who is over from San Francisco. (He also happens to be my ex-husband.) He is such a lovely man. I hadn't seen him for ages. It was great to spend some time in his company - so thank you Dons for making that possible :o} ......... Oh and for the cream tea .............

Awwww... that's nice to hear someone talk so nicely about their ex husband!
One day, I'm determined to visit Dons for a real cream tea! (hehe! and I'd like you to be there...) Remember I received one throught the post from her!? It was such a great surprise!
I only have one ex-boyfriend that I love still... (Oh and one ex-fling that I feel quite fondly of too!) :o)

Throught?? I hate it when I leave a spelling mistake in someone's comments box!
Ho Hum! :-)

hahaha - yes, that's really annoying when that happens, isn't it?

It was a lovely brief visit wasn't it? I just wish he lived nearer.

I agree with Trac it's good that you and your ex seem to still be on good terms. Really quite rare.

I see that (from my end anyway) everything has come back up to the top! Did you do something or did it happen on it's own ?

March 20, 2006 1:18 pm

Blogger Donna said...

Still can't get to you from your comments tho!

Hi Leons Life - I'm not on bad terms with any of my exs - I find it's best not to have bad feelings towards people if at all possible - it would only damage me in the end :o}

I have risen to the top of my blog now because darling trac did some fiddling with it for me. I have no idea what she did but whatever it was it has done the trick - hurrah!

Hi Dons
Yes, the visit was lovely but brief and he is so far away :o{
You'll have to get on that plane sweetie!

I wonder why you can't link to me through my comments? Luce has had problems finding me too, it appears. She thought I had stopped blogging.

March 20, 2006 1:51 pm

Blogger euro-trac said...

Yes, that is strange and I'm not sure why! Normally when you click onto a name in a comments box, you get straight through to their profile page, but you don't seem to have one!? :o(

Shall I have a look into it for you? Thought I'd ask first, don't want to just nip into your blog without asking!

yes! looking forward to GW - and the first episode from last time is repeated tonight. too late for me tho....

I can get to your profile from your comments - but not to your blog. It looks as though your blog URL is missing from your profile set-up - perhaps maybe?

March 20, 2006 10:24 pm

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Thanks for the hint Lettuce.
Trac, does this help you at all with sorting it out??

March 20, 2006 11:09 pm

Blogger euro-trac said...

I'll have a look in a bit! I NEED coffee at the moment! :-)

March 21, 2006 9:47 am

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

hahaha - that's cool. I always need coffee first thing.

March 21, 2006 10:13 am

Blogger euro-trac said...

Do you know! I think I've gone an done it!

You must really think that I know what I'm doing! hehehehe!

Blogger ramblingwoman said...

well, I've just caught up with your blog! I couldn't access from your comments so assumed you'd given up! Not so!

Nick Cave...ah, there's a ballad he sings, the name escapes me, which is the nicest song in the world...I think it's 'I believe in you'. It's so beautiful.

You have a very good outlook on life GOW!

March 21, 2006 10:51 am

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Trac you are sooo clever! Yes, I certainly do think you know what you're doing :o}
Thank you Sweetie - it's great that people can link to me now xxxx

March 21, 2006 2:22 pm

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Hi Luce
I'm very pleased that you have found me again - thanks to that wonderful Trac and her fabulous fiddling!
Mmmm ... Nick Cave - such a passionate performer.

Thanks for your kind words :o}

March 21, 2006 2:35 pm

Blogger euro-trac said...

"wonderful Trac and her fabulous fiddling!" Oooh la la!

Looks like your blog is all lovely and working properly, but if you have any probs in the future, just let me know! :o)

p.s. I couldn't help noticing Dons' sexy strawberry neocounter! You can have one too if you like! Or flowers or sky! ;O)

Sorry, that was me deleting the last comment! I posted the same comment twice!
There seems to be something strange going on with the comments! Not just yours, I think it's blogger.com's fault!

March 21, 2006 2:57 pm

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Oooh Trac! What do you think I should have for my neo counter? Sky - flowers - what would go best with the funky colours that Dons have given me for my blog?

March 21, 2006 8:06 pm

Blogger ramblingwoman said...

Hi GOW. To see my 'website' (blog really with pictures!) just click on the my side bar 'beginnings of my website' - it's the first picture you see.


March 21, 2006 8:28 pm

Blogger euro-trac said...

It's probably best for Dons to sort out your counter to go with her blog colours! I'm a bit drunk at the moment, so I'm leaving you with smarties and pink dots!

I bet, by the morning I'll regret it!
:o) x

March 22, 2006 2:37 am

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Hi Trac - the smarties are cool - thanx - you are a sweetie! xxxx

March 22, 2006 7:53 am

Blogger euro-trac said...

All of our clocks have gone missing! I expect they'll pop back at some point...

The smarties look better to me sober... hehehe!
But like I said, Dons can sort out your counter's look as she's in charge of the look of your blog!

I'll just be the maintenence department! :o)

March 22, 2006 8:22 am

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Cheers Trac!

27 comments?!!!!!! I thought I was missing something here. You've been having your own little blog party without me, hahahaha ;-)

March 22, 2006 8:32 am

Blogger grumpy old woman said...

Yup, 27 comments and most of them mine! hahaha
