Happy Birthday To Me!


46 today.


Yeah.


"late forties" - gulp!


This is the view from the 7th floor of my pet building project. Impressive, huh?


I woke to text from London. My daughter has been offered a school place. It is a weird weird day today.

It just gets better now. My "gulp" year was when I turned 27 and thought "uh oh, late twenties. not young any more".
Many many happy returns, and all best wishes for the year ahead!

Hope you have a lovely day - and the weather has improved for you. x

A very Happy Birthday. I hope you weren't thinking of jumping! If anyone is rude enough to ask, just halve your age. ;-)

Happy birthday, lovely lady! Yeah, 40s, huh? I thought the big 4-0 would be it and suddenly 41 is racing towards me. How did that happen? Hope everything is okay with your daughter and that you've had a good day, even if a bit weird.

Oh Happy Birthday! Same day as my sister.We just returned from celebrating her 49th.And I must say, that Norie hat has me wishing very much that I could do more than basic knit and purl stitch.
And I don't even do them well.
You are one talented lady. Hope
all goes well for the "girl child."

Wishing you a great year. My advice is, forget about numbers!

Cool building project. Is this to be the Roobeedoo Knitting and Sewing (and Blogging) Centre of Excellence? :-)

Thanks everyone! There were several jokes about whether I wanted to be the first to jump from the 7th floor, as I had left it too late to be buried in the concrete. Charming! And no, Christine, I am afraid it won't be named after me - there is a price tag of several £m attached to that honour! ;)

Happy birthday, Roo! It has taken me several looks to interpret that building photograph. At first I thought it was a favourite building rather than a building under construction and I was trying to see those gaps in the netting as a sculptural effect in glass... Too much hanging out with architects and glass artists, methinks (but that can never be a bad thing can it?). I wish you and your daughter very well for the decisions that lie ahead. xxx
