It's That Day Again,

 


On this day in 1960 a rebel was born, and everyone knew it straight away, although I hid the fact so sweetly in lots of these photos.  😁

For your amusement, on my birthday here is a trip down memory lane.

A proper little madam on a family holiday.


Junior school photo ... I hated combing my hair then and my Mum was horrified when she got the photos.  😂


I scrubbed up well for Whit Week every year though.


The Girl Guide with the longest legs.  😄


On holiday with the family.


A day out, Dad loved the roses and asked me to stand next to them.


My fifteenth birthday.

Then we'll skip forward a few years to save your time and your sanity ... past a wedding at 18, children in my 20s, first grandchild in my 30s, a divorce, two years of freedom, another wedding at 47, more grandchildren and a complete change of lifestyle for the second time in my life. 


A smallholders day out at River Cottage.  Yep, I'd been 'Tangoed'.  😀


Celebrating something .... or perhaps it was just a wine day.  😄


Organising my Lovely Hubby ... he takes a lot of organising!!

Then it was another grandchild and the start of the great grandchildren.  Fast forward to today ...

And to scare you all off, me now 64 today.  Bloody hell how did that happen?

Just me, you can take me or leave me ... but I'm the only one I've got, so you're pretty much stuck with me if you want to read my wild and wacky ramblings.  💖

Thank you for always being here.


Sue xx

  1. Happy Birthday Sue, you're wearing well! Hope there's some good dark chocolate in your day. 😋
    At least your dad asked you to be next to the roses, mine would have got us out of the way. Sadly, I have very few family photos as my dad always wanted pictures of scenery.

    1. Thank you, some dark and some Blonde Aldi chocolate will be good. Maybe I was just there for the perspective, they were tall roses!! ;-)

  6. Happy birthday Sue. It's my birthday today too and I'm a Sue as well! I love being born in April the changeable weather but like me and being an Aries, a bit feisty. Hope you have a lovely day. Regards Sue H

  7. Happy birthday Sue - we must all be around the same age, there are a lot of Sues around! Lovely photos - we've not got many early photos, I don't think Mum and Dad really went in for photography much. I love that Brooke Hampton 'Girls are' quote, it certainly applies to me too! Have a lovely day xx

    1. Thank you. ❤️ There are a LOT of us Sue's for sure. Dad was into slide photography in a big way, my brother had them digitalised so we couldn't have them all on our computers.

      Brooke says it as it is doesn't she. 😀

  10. Happy, happy Birthday Sue. You are just a year and a bit ahead of me and seeing your photos reminds me so much of ' milestones ' along my way, although I wish I had those long legs - mine are short and fat!
    Thanks for all your blogs........it's always a pleasure reading and joining in on them x

    1. Thank you so much. ❤️ Life is a series of milestones isn't it, and you don't realise how many you've passed already until you sit and do something like this.

      I'm sure my legs have shortened now. 😂🤣
