59 not out...

I had an enjoyable birthday yesterday. I was in Edinburgh for my weekly art history course, l then had lunch with two of my daughters at the Portrait Gallery before looking round the BP portrait completion exhibition. Home for presents
Hardly visible is a  game Letter Tycoon which has some beautiful graphics and look forward to trying it. The girls made a birthday meal afterwards. A good day .
Today Jan would have been 57  and she is much in our thoughts. When we first met it was a fun thing that we had  birthdays a day apart.  A  recently widowed friend told me this week of the idea of  “sappy “ occasions which are both happy and exhausting. I was rather taken with the idea and thought it was a great way of thinking about the time leading up to anniversaries or memorable events.  We will get through this sappy day today.

  7. A belated happy birthday and many more to come. It seems good to me to remember and cherish good memories and keep them alive as you move forward.

  9. Best wishes on this milestone, albeit a bit late. Five-nine looms on my horizon. I hope I face the day as well as you have. (Frankly, I’m a bit tired of aging, but the only alternative is not to my liking.)
