Hello ...

Hi Everyone,

I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all you wonderful people who left me Happy Birthday wishes for the 17th, and to those of you who mentioned my birthday on your own blogs. What a bunch of fantastic people you all are. I feel priviledged to have gotten to "know" you all through the blog world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Ok, so what have I been up to, since I last posted .... hmmm, that would be about 10 days ago now ... OMG, how slack am I !?!?

Well, as you know, it was my birthday on Saturday ... that was a lovely day, with family coming over to help celebrate Saturday night. A quiet evening, but great fun none-the-less.

I have been busy working Monday / Wednesday / Friday these past few weeks. The remaining weekdays have been busy with houswork, shopping, catching up with friends (and, unfortunately, no blogging ... waaaahhhhh!!). Weekends have been busy with being Chicky's taxi driver, ferrying her to parties, dance rehearsals, netball, and whatever else. OMG, that child has a busier social life than I have !!

I am quickly posting this, before heading off to work, this Monday morning. We are starting later, as the company I work for has moved to a new building, and the computer system is not up and running yet, so we cannot begin work. They originally promised it would be working by Sunday ... and we were meant to start at 8am this morning ... ummmm, nope, that ain't happened !!! Apparently, all will be ready, and we start at 11am. Hmmm, I guess we just have to wait and see !!

As I say everytime I post lately, I hope to drop by all your blogs during the course of this week. Please don't hold me to it, but I will try. Believe it or not, I actually do visit your blogs, via my Google Reader, quite regularly, although usually don't have time to comment. I apologise for this, but that's the way my life is at the moment. I miss you all tremendously, and wish I had the time to visit properly. Thank you, once again, for continuing to perservere with me, and dropping by to see if I am still alive !!

Anyway, I had better make tracks. Hope you all have a fantastic week. We have a forecast of 37C (98.6F) ... that's pretty warm. The past few days have been in the 30s, and there is more of that to come ... and it's not even Summer yet ... darn it !! Hope the temperature isn't too extreme where you live, whether it be cold or hot.

Take care,

I quit having birthdays a few years ago and now just celebrate annually the current anniversary of my 35th birthday. That keeps the numbers lower.

You are getting some pretty warm temperatures. I don't know your normals for this time of the year but it sounds like you are above the norms. We could use some of it here where our highs are in the mid 40s(F) and by mid-week will be dropping below freezing overnights.

Happy belated Birthday. I'm sorry I missed your big day.

Blessings for many more years.

Haaaaappy birthday to yooooouuu!

My granddaughter is sweet 16 today. Time does fly...I remember the drama of her birth. I say drama, because I was there at the time. Actually it was beautiful and something I'll never forget.

Don't work too hard!

Sometimes those nice quiet birthdays are the best ones:-) I just realized I put a birthday card for you on my blog but I never came over here to actually wish you a Happy Birthday!! See what happens since I've turned 50 last month, a few memory cells have disappeared! hehe Anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you dear friend! xoxo

Marie said...

Many, many happy returns for your big day on Saturday! Hope the year ahead is wonderful for you.

Busy days and nights for all. Even moi, hence the break in blog transmission.

Otherwise, all is fine in the tropics tonight.

Hi Connie ~~ Nice to see a post from you, but we understand you have a family to care for, work three days a week, run the taxi for Chicky. Any wonder you get too busy to blog. Just pop one in every now and then to let us know you are OK. Take care, my friend. Love, Merle.

Gidday Connie,

I have a excuse for my belated birthday greetings, I was in Mackay visiting my daughter and grandkids and without any internet connection.
I've also had a little break from blogging but now I'm back.
