Not far behind you Betty so let me know just how much you have enjoyed your 70th so that I can look forward to mine too.
betty2
Jaybee dont feel any different, but had the greatest time . Had all the family [14 in all] at the retaraunt for dinner the meal was excellent They all did me proud The lights were dimmed in the restaraunt and a cake was brought in and everyone singing "happy birthday" Lots of lovely presents but to me the highlight was being surrounded by my nearest and dearest. A great feelin I mentioned this on another thread but I,ll do so again , My son presented me with a family tree, all done in photos, Me at the top then my daughters and sons and their kids, it was a beautiful gift , one I shall treasure, me my 4 kids and 6 grandkids all pictured individually on each branch wub.gif

Tomorrow my neighbour and her husband are taking me to lunch so anothet treat in store for me. So jaybee looks like this is goin to continue , next week I,m off to cambridge for the weekend and who knows mibby something else will arise . So you see life begins again at 70 rolleyes.gif
betty2

jakka13
Glad to hear you're enjoying yourself Betty .If your anything like me I bet you don't feel a day older than you did at forty laugh.gif
jaybee
Life begins at 70 eh???? Then I canny wait. Told you, keep it going and if you get tired, just cat nap. You don't want to miss anything. What a lovely gift from your son. My neice did something similar for my mother's 90th. She then mounted it on a magnetic board and I have it stuck to my fridge for her so every day she can look at her whole family. It ain't so bad getting old, is it? I am enjoying it.
