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

me again

Had a fabulous Mother's Day yesterday - I was very spoilt with fab prezzies - then we girlies all ran off to the restaurant where Jazz works and had coffee, toast and cakes whilst sprawling on squishy sofas looking out at the beautiful bay.

Then we had to go back to the real world to meet up with Elizabeth's birthday guests and spent the rest of the day celebrating her birthday, which was great fun. Elizabeth really enjoyed it too, which was indeed a bonus. The pic shows her clapping her hands - an activity which she indulged in a lot throughout the day :o}

Tomorrow the lovely young woman who highjacked her Mum's blog to post a Mother's Day entry is coming to visit me. I feel so honoured that an almost sixteen year old young woman chooses to spend time in my company. The time we spend together is very precious to me. We don't do anything special - mooch around the shops, choose something for our evening meal, buy magazines, eat, chat, watch some TV. We can even sit together in silence, which is an indication of how comfortable we are with each other.

Lucky me....... (pressing my lips together ...... )

hahha, this lip pressing thing has caught on? Does it work or does it just make us look like we have piles?

Well we know how great you, Donna and Jazz are, but now you say your mother was like Elsie Tanner!!

How cool is that?

I loved Elsie Tanner - the Queen of Soaps!!

Hello Donna's lovely Mum....(you are her Mum aren't you? I do get things mixed up at times)

thank you for your nice supportive comment..;-)

And there's nothing nicer than having a lovely Gran..Jazz is lucky. And you are lucky to be able to spend time with her. I talked to my Mum tonight and she was crying for my boys - they were always very close - and she misses them like blazes...as they miss her.

Yes, I wish my lot had a gran.

You seem to have such a lovely family.

Thanks for your birthday wishes. I had a wonderful day. Tired now though! Too old to rave.

Hi Tats & Trac ..... thanks for calling in - I think the current version of that phrase, if you were five year olds, would be "poo, bum, willy"!
As for me raving Donna - the less said about that the better! hahaha

I agree with lettuce I want to be a granny like you too. The worlds grumpy and old seem so inappropriate.

You need to change the blog name:
The worlds bestist granny or do a blog competition. Rename Grumpy's blog

poo bum willy is Paul's favourite naughty sabotage phrase. If I leave my desk top open or emails to be sent I have to be careful to check them before sending as he nearly always adds 'poo bum willy'. Guess that means he has a mental age of 5 then. I knew that tho didn't I?
