I am 53 today. I have had a very satisfactory birthday. My loving family delivered on the present front. I got amazing home made cards from the boys; I spoke to herself in far off England. I got lots of flowers, cards and good wishes. I had birthday cake. Mr. Waffle and I went to Glendalough and it did not rain on us.
Honestly an excellent birthday.
Unfortunately, as I tramped around the mountains on my delightful day off not one but two of my staff texted me to say that they had tested positive for Covid. As I had them in my office several times over the course of the last few days, I fear the worst. I feel fine so far though and I am double vaccinated and boosted. Let’s hope for the best.

Happy birthday and thank you so much for the many pleasures your blogs provide. I have fingers crossed for you that the vaccine does its work and the covid stays away. Here in New Zealand I am waiting for the time when I can travel again. At present even the suggestion of a two hour – socially distanced – train ride away to our capital city is frowned upon by many around me. I am told either I am ‘very brave’ or, that it is not something they would do. We shall see. Enjoy your day. Regards, Kerry
Happy birthday for yesterday. Here’s to a year of good health, adventures and frequent blogs.
Hope the vaccines do their best and it’s mild if you do have covid, the office present collections have gone downhill during the pandemic.
Looks like & sounds like the sort of day a birthday should be; without the texts. But anyway….
Congratulation and hope the year of 53 is a bloggy as the one just gone.
