Granny and day five.

Hello All.

Wow what a day.
The sea is full of the most incredible energy today.
I have,also, never seen so many birds in one place.
I have twenty seven photographs.
I won’t show them all to you.
I promise.

We didn’t go to the beach.
Too damn cold and windy.
When we got to the point I let Jasmine out of the car.
Thought I might just stay in the warm car.
Not a chance.
She stood looking at me with her head cocked.
Come old girl…let’s get going.
It is going to take me the rest of the day to defrost.

So my birthday was very quiet.
Which is probably a good thing.
Too much excitement not a good thing at my age!
I’m being sarcastic people.

My friend and her hubby drove an hour to come over for coffee.
Which meant a lot to me.
She also brought me a box of fattening goodies.
Homemade rusks,fudge, some other sweet things, some choccie biscuits and a slab of chocolate.
Hmmmmm…I don’t know whether to love her or hate her.
Oh yes…and a bottle of red wine.

My phone never stopped.
Which was wonderful.
So nice to be remembered.
Even a half hour call from Germany.

My beloved daughter in law forgot.
She phoned this morning.
Full of remorse.
I will be able to milk this for a long time. πŸ™‚
I still love you sweetheart.
You are forgiven.

Now I think I shall go and have a nap.
Because that is a good thing to do when you are on holiday.


  1. Happy Birthday, Granny (a little late). Your photo of the surf is magnificent. Amd the birds! I always look forward to your post because of the photos. And you of course. Enjoy your off days.

    • Thanks so much Maire…only one day to go…sigh

  2. Glad you had a nice day, Granny.

    That first photo is amazing. I hopre you weren’t too close.

    • Not a chance Tilly…love my zoom!

  3. Love the photos! I’m so glad you had a nice birthday. Your friend’s gifts are so YUMMY! Enjoy them – to heck with the guilt, I say! πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks RD…too yummy…can feel the weight piling on!

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Enjoy your last days off πŸ™‚ Thanks for the invite to have scones, I think they might be stale by the time I get there though 😦

    • Hi Princess….make that LAST day! It is going to be hard to go back!

  5. Wonderful photos, Granny. Glad you had a lovely Birthday filled with sweet surprises.

    And wine.
    And naps.

    • The nap didn’t work NR…too much coffee!

  6. birthday, pressies, calls (how about the facebook love?) and then you are still on holiday. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    • Jealousy makes you ugly!!! πŸ™‚

  7. Glad you had a lovely (although quiet) birthday granny!
    Pressies and calls are good.
    Yummy food is good. (Not the consequences though)!
    Have to work it off with more walks on the beach with Jasmine.
    Make the most of the rest of your holiday!

    • Hi Barb…as you will see from today’s post I slept and read ALL day!!!

  8. Happy Birthday granny ! glad you had a nice day-the photos are beautiful. There were lots of birds-but aren’t they beautiful ! Yes; AREN’T- its a word in my dictionary !!! πŸ™‚

    • We say aren’t all the time over here Penny!
      Thanks for the wishes.

  9. What a wave! Good shot. That Jasmine didn’t fall off the turnip truck, did she?!

    • I am not sure what that means Souldipper…it sounds derogatory.? πŸ™‚

  10. Happy belated, Granny! Some of my very favorite people have April birthday including my dad (his was the 26th) Very nice snap, by the by! It has been raining here in Michigan for most of April and I’m pretty much over it. My view isn’t as beautiful as yours.

    • Thanks Blogbrarian…we have SO many April birthdays….today is my son and tomorrow is the latest granson’s first birthday.

  11. I take it your birthday was on the 25th… (…fell a little behind on my e-mail hehe) A very happy, happy birthday granny! I hope that you had a very enjoyable day πŸ™‚ I have to say: I also prefer phone calls; don’t mind so much if I don’t get a lot of gifts (although those are always welcome, thank you πŸ˜‰ – A phone call just says, “I remembered something that matters to you because you matter enough.” That’s me anyway… Do hope that you have just as nice a week for the rest of it πŸ™‚

  12. A belated “Happy Birthday” to you! I’m sorry I missed saying it on the day.

    • No problem Dawn…it just makes the birthday last longer!

  13. Happy Birthday! Glad you’re taking a break. The photos are amazing — especially that one of the wave. So, as we head into summer, you are moving into winter? We had a little rain today, but our temps are still quite cool. The high today was (I think) 15 degrees. I’m not complaining, but I sure wish it would hurry up and get into the twenties! Have a great rest of your holiday.

    • Thanks so much KLRS..yes we are defintely racing into winter…snow forecast on the mountains.

  14. Glad you got spoilt with the gift basket πŸ™‚

    • Hmmmmmm cindy…I am not sure..tummy resting on my lap!

  15. Have a nice nap, Granny. Sweet dreams!

  16. […] Granny who is on the other side of the planet has had the same bird experience, check it out here… […]

    • Thanks for the mention Princess!
