A bit of this and a bit of that

                                  

Yesterday I celebrated my Birthday ~ I had a great day ~ starting off first thing in the morning when I opened the door to the little sitting room which is where my computer lives It was pretty well crammed with Balloons ~ :o)

On one chair there were some Birthday Presents ~ as you can probably see I got lots of things for the Birds~ Seed ~ peanuts ~ fat balls ~ as they know I love to feed them ~ and Russell made me a new Bird table which they took too at once ~ (The birds that is :o) and some DVD's ~

Lyn took me out for a Birthday Lunch and Tom joined us it was really lovely ~

and I just want to thank you for sending me Birthday Cards both through Snail Mail and e~mail ~ I was very touched at such thoughtfulness ~

The day before my birthday when I woke I realised I could not hear very well ~ when I put the TV on it was very odd as it was like listening through a tunnell ~ I rang the Nurse who when I went to see her she said both my ears needed syringing ~ I have never ever had any trouble with my hearing ~ I have to put this Olive Oil down both ears for a week ~ then she said next Wednesday she would give me my hearing back ~ Lyn and the receptionist were laughing as I couldn't hear what she was telling me ~ so she wrote me a note ~ and handed it to me ~

Went to see My Sister Joy this morning and she said she had noticed for a couple of weeks I didn't answer her when she spoke to me ~ (But she forgave me:o) being as I had not heard the questions ~ 

We hopefully are having a BBQ tomorrow if the weather holds out ~ and even a swim if it is warm enough ~ But if it is a nasty day will be having a Roast Sunday Dinner ~ there will be 12 of us ~ so that should be a fun day ~

Ally

What a lovely Birthday it seems you had!!!  I hope you had a nice time as well.  Seems many folks around here are having trouble with ther ears.  Hope they get better soon.

Happy Birthday Ally albeit late.  I like the pressie of the bird table.  I imagine Nin and Barney did a little clearing up of the balloons....they're not easy to grab hold off, but fun to see them trying too :) You have a lovely birthday week. Rache

mlraminiak said...

Wow!  Your birthday sounds like Christmas!  Mine is coming up on Saturday, and I don't expect I'll see as many gifts as you got.  However, my sister did buy me something at the local department store today.  It's a bird book that has a little doo-hickey attached to it that will play a recording of the song of the bird you're looking up.  I will enjoy the heck out of it, I'm sure.  

Happy Birthday, a few days late...!
