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

Mid Season


Went to the shops today and saw a sign saying "Mid Season Sale" - mid precisely what season are we talking about here?

Had a lovely afternoon on Wednesday. I took time off work to play with Lizzy while Dons was having her meeting with Mr Fabric Man. It was a magical time - I hardly ever have a 1-1 session with Lizzy 'cos there is generally at least one other sibling present who thinks they have exclusive rights to me :o} I tell you, girls, the Granny stage is the big payoff for the horrid, worrying times you can go through when you're being a parent. The whole relationship is so simple - you just love them and they love you back.

I am not responsible for working out the best way to bring them up. All I have to do is follow the parents basic rules and then enjoy. It is such a privilege to have the love and trust of a child - something money cannot buy.

Oh, I saw a couple of the real grumpy old women on Richard and Judy tonight - they're fab! So, Trac, is Linda Robson the woman that my photo reminds you of? (Bad grammar, I know).

Later: Loved everyone's choice of band/artist. Here's mine:

Name of Artist: Nick Cave
Are you male or female? – “West Country Girl”
Describe yourself: “Nobody’s Baby Now”
How do you feel about yourself? “Oh my lord!”
Describle your ex-boyfriend: “Black Hair”
Describe your favourite ex-boyfriend: “Loverman”
Describe where you want to be: “Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow”
Describe how you live: “Ordinary”
Describe how you love: “I Let Love In”
What would you ask for if you had one wish? “New Morning”
Share a few words of wisdom: “Ain’t Gonna Rain Anymore"

Now say goodbye: "Where Do We Go Now but

No that wasn't me... I don't think you look like anyone from Birds of a Feather! Never seen it!
Love your Nick Cave thing! It's amazing how everyone's that I've read, works so well! :o)
I'll try and remind my Mother In Law what you've said about being a grandparent when she has my boys all to herself over Easter! hehe!

Sorry Trac - it was Luce (Rambling woman) that thought my pic reminded her of someone from Birds of a Feather, so I've (obviously) been trying to work out who it might be. Having never watched B of a F myself, it's not been easy but, having watched the Grumpy Old Women on TV last night I think Luce might have meant Linda Robson.

Well, on my computer you are back on top, where you belong!!

I'm a bit worried about your profile pic as it has a habit of disappearing - same as dons! Must run in the family! :-)

I've changes your comments to word verification as I seem to remember you telling someone that you wanted to get rid of the other way you had set before! I can always change it back if you prefer!

Oh yes... and I've changed your time to GMT

Anything else... just let me know!

I wonder if you will be on top on everyones computer!?

love Trac

p.s. There is something odd about your neo counter where the flags keep popping out of their box!?
Not sure what that's about...

If you want me to 'snazz' your counter up a bit, email the password and stuff that you use for that, and I'll take a look for you!

Hi Trac
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for sorting my site out for me. It looks fine to me now and yes I'm much happier now that people can post comments straight to my blog - much better :o}

As for the password for my neo-counter - haven't a clue - Dons set it up for me, so I'm going to have to ask her.

Happy me! ~(:o})=

Glad you're happy!
That's all I wanted! x

It's amazing to see yours and Dons profile pics next to each other... you both really look alike!
Both gorgeous! :-)

Hi Tats

Yes, my red headed pixie is gorgeous, isn't she? The design of my blog and the choice of pixie are all down to Donna's great taste ~(:o})=
