Birthday #57

So Friday was my birthday I’m now 57 yrs old. I don’t feel that old mentally, I still feel as daft as I was when I was in my early 20’s, but physically things have not gone so well I feel about 107.

The day started off pretty well, a few cards and presents from the family, a few books that I wanted, a bit of lindt dark chocolate, a tee shirt and tickets to go and see Harry Potter World when I’m feeling a little more up to it.

After everyone had gone off to work, Dora decided she wanted to go on one of her rare walks, damn near killed us both, but still enjoyed it as it’s not that often we get to do one now.

Then after getting home it was time to get ready as I was going out to lunch, meeting my work mates at Pizza Express, good food, great company, good laughs and excellent presents, cinema vouchers and a bottle of local “Silly Moo” cider. Been so long since the 4 of us were in the same place together.

Friday evening was spent eating popcorn and watching another present I got from my eldest, a DVD called “Bad times at the El Royale” excellent movie, by the time I got to bed I could barely move, but after having such a wonderful day I really didn’t mind though as Saturday and Sunday had been earmarked as rest days.

Saturday was spent mainly in the garden with Dora sleeping beside the bench and me reading the latest book I’d bought “Made in Scotland” by Billy Connolly, and watching a fantastic FA Cup Final between Man City and Watford and the best part of Saturday was I didn’t have to watch  Eurovision, result!, pain levels were ridiculously high but a good day in all.

Sunday got off to a painful start, eventually got downstairs the Mrs went off to work and I went into the garden with a coffee, Dora and my book, should hopefully finish the book today.

So the wife is home now from work and my youngest is on her way. Tonight is Takeaway night as it was my birthday Friday  and so I will be partaking of a Lamb Vindaloo, Pilau rice and a garlic naan.

All in all a damn good weekend

Thank’s everyone for the cards, presents, company and birthday wishes you all made the weekend a good one.

Party on dudes

    1. It was great to see you all too, already looking to see what films are coming along. I picked up a little something for Danny Dyer that I think she will like 🤬, I will bring it along to the next coffee session. Have a good week 🙂.
