another year has passed by so quickly. I hope 2014 so far, has been kind to you.
Next year I turn 60. Its great to be able take what life has dished out for me. I am thankful for what I have, the experiences I have gone through, the trials & tribulations, the hard knocks and the willing shoulders, and of course the good family I have and the fabulous friends I have made at SHC. Some have decided that I am a bit.h and left but there are many who stood by me through the jolly good times and the not so good times.
It would be nice to to able to celebrate it in a big way. Like having a party with a “live” band with family and loads of good friends to share the special occasion. A mountain of longevity buns and a huge birthday cake! Yes, I am still a little girl at heart. Love my cakes and birthday parties!
Or simply sail into the sunset on a cruise and wake up early to watch the sun rise again on my birthday!
I have managed to strike some items off from my bucket list. Like going on a hot air balloon ride – awesome!!!, went on a holiday and sleeping in a hotel room on my own – for the very first time in my life. Of course I freaked out at the thought of “someone” sharing my bed or worse still “someone” sharing my mirror at night! My hair is standing on ends right now! And yes, every lamp in the room was turned on. Would love to go on a cruise – Mediterranean or Carribbean! Anyone who has been on these cruises, if willing, please do share some tips with me. Thank you in advance.
I have been thinking for some time now. Maybe its time to organise a talentime or a T-dance with our own members belting out songs of the 60s. With a “live” band like the RTS time. And we all go retro! No fancy food but just the good old fashioned sandwiches with ham or cheese and cucumber, fruit punch with slices of orange in the punch bowl, cocktail sausages with a cube of pineapple and cucumber skewered together on a toothpick, fried fish balls, chicken wings etc! Many members I know will turn 60 too next year. Wouldn’t it be nice?
Just a thought! Because its raining heavily and I love watching the rain falling down – therapeutic. Makes me feel nostalgic too…..
Listen to the rythm of the falling rain…..
Pitter patter pitter patter….
I wish for everyone, that you enjoy good health, good luck and happiness for the new year and the many more years to come!
