they say it's my birthday & take the last train..

You say it's your birthday
It's my birthday too, yeah
They say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you
by Lennon-McCartney

yes, today I turn 51!

where has the past year gone? blinked and I nearly damn well missed it....

not much to report.... had a lovely breakfast with Harry and his parents.... then gardened for most of the day... and then tonight we are going out to a lovely dinner at the BonTon in Leura... I guess that is what you do on birthdays once you are over 50. I cannot believe that I am over 50 now... it seems only yesterday that I was 17... I look in the mirror with the eyes and soul of a young person and staring back at me sometimes, is someone that I don't know. This year, I hope to get to know that person who is me. So now, a whole year until my birthday.. a whole year of my journey... I wonder where it will take me.

oh and before I forget.. today is the last chance to visit the Enchanted Forest... take the last train.. click on the caravan below.. don't miss it!

Happy Birthday Robyn!!!

Don't they fly be now? I know just what you mean about being seventeen, you wonder where it went!! I'm sure we all feel the same inside except I know I have more acceptance of things now that I did then! (Except when it comes to dealing with mother!!)

Happy Birthday Beautiful

I hope by the end of this year when you look in that mirror you recognize the beauty and wisdom and light and sweetness you shine out to everyone else.

Tho I do know what you mean - Does your mother inhabit your mirror like mine does? Why won't she get outta my way and let me fix my lipstick for heaven's sakes!

Kavindra said...
