I recently posted a photo of two flower arrangements ,one for a gift,and one for me,but couldn’t decide which to give to a dear friend,and former neighbour,who was about to celebrate being 90 years young…
this is the one we gave her..and she loved it ..

Here she is,with her lovely cakes..at her ‘bit of a do ’….which was great..A hog roast and superb buffet was provided ..and doesn’t she look great?.A tireless fund raiser,and she omitted to tell us she didn’t want gifts,but donations in lieu of presents..which of course,everyone did..as well as gifts:o)

Me and my ‘second’ mum,as I affectionately call her..

A wonderful day out with a special lady..:o)

Happy returns to your friend, Bloomer. I think the arrangement you gave her is beautiful, what a lucky lady she is! I hope I look as good if I make it to 90!

Thank you so much guys and gals..she will be thrilled when she sees her photo on "Tinternet" Lol. Her eldest daughter is 73 this year,( child bride)and she can run rings round them all,and me :o) still does all her own painting and decorating too.. She likes a tot of Whiskey,and Brandy..and Sherry ..in fact most things..that must be one of her remedy's for a long and happy life,or it helps..
We just love her to bits :o)

She looks one very happy lady ... a 'young-at-heart' 90 yr. old if ever I saw one! I read your comment as 'she likes a Lot of Whiskey' ... lol! You're looking tanned and healthy too Sandra ... :o)

Thanks Neellan,it was a lovely day..and it was lovely that a lot of her family from down South were able to attend..it meant so much to her...:o)
..............
A very happy lady,Shirley..and I guess she wouldn't look as good after a lot of Whiskey ! I think you might want to reread it as a tot ! Lol xx

I have just been looking at those lovely birthday cakes and the one on the right looks like Birtday ... should I be going to Specsavers? :o)))

10 Jul, 2013

 

90??? she is amazing, lovely pics of you both and what a great 'do' you all put on for her. Congrats.
ps. Shirley...I agree with you 'Birtday', someone has nicked the H. Lol

10 Jul, 2013

 

Well, I hope it wasn't Bloomer! You know what a joker she can be ..........

10 Jul, 2013

 

ha ha,I wasn't going to mention the missing H ,Shirley :o).Her daughter in law realised too late,she had missed it out,so no need to get your eyes tested yet dear..:o)
One was a fruit cake ..delicious..and the other was sponge..very thoughtful to have a choice..x

10 Jul, 2013

 

Well spotted as well,G.mage..we did laugh about it..I agree,she looks just great doesn't she? She only gave up her voluntary job at the local Hospital in her late eighties..talk about Wonderwoman ! :o)

10 Jul, 2013

 

LOL Sandra! ... I can't help smiling though ... :o)))

10 Jul, 2013

 

Oddly enough,it was I who mentioned the H to her daughter in law..but she had left it at home where it was assembled :o)..red face,and not with the sun ! . No problem,all went well anyway..funny,there's never an H around,when you need one ! Lol
