Memos, Mail and me

Last week was the first of Sian's plan to share the best bit of post from the previous week, and I pre-wrote my post when there had been nothing of interesting arriving on my door mat.  I scheduled the post to publish and half an hour later the postman arrived with a rather lovely surprise of a small premium bond win.  Cue late minute editing of the original post!
 
This week it was much easier to choose!  My monthly subscription of 'the simple things' arrived on Saturday just at the point when the coffee machine was on.  Ah, nothing better on a Saturday morning to sip a cappuccino and browse though a good magazine.  There were a million and one things I should have been doing, but it was lovely to take a half hour out of a busy day to relax and recharge my batteries because we had a busy weekend ahead (more of that below) and there was much baking and cooking to do.

 
How about the rest of the weekend then? 
 
Well it was party central here yesterday.  We were celebrating Paul's mum's 90th birthday.  I guess that getting to that age and having your family gathering around you, you would assume that you would be the centre of attention wouldn't you?  Not with this little cutie stealing your limelight ...

A 90th birthday is the amazing & a celebration that includes the eldest to the youngest always has such a charm about it. Oh how nice to have a good picture magazine in ones hands. I borrow magazines from the library & I am never the first to glance through them & I miss being the first to open ... Happy week ahead.

Lovely photos of the party! I had my copy of The Simple Things as my standby blog post for today ... it ended up on IG!

I've never seen that magazine, it looks a good one. Congratulations to the birthday girl.

What a special celebration! It must be wonderful to watch the generations together.

Is there anything nicer than a little quiet time with a new magazine (apart from a multi generational big bash, of course) Call me daft, but when I get a new one the first thing I do is look to see what will be in the next month's so that I know what I'll have to look forward to when this one is finished.

Wishing you a great week

What lovely photos and a special time together! I love to see young and old in the same space ... I stopped subscribing to The Simple Things last autumn but sometimes buy the odd copy :).
