Another Milestone Achieved

September 1st . Today I reached the age of 70th. I really don’t know where all the years have gone. Time waits for no-one.My day started with a phone call from from my 87 year spiritual soul mate Geoff who lives in Victoria ( I live in Brisbane). Geoff sang Happy Birthday to me. So sweet, it was a delightful start to my day.

Up bright and early , dressed in pink ready for the start of spring .

Waiting at the bus stop in preparation for a day out. Another cluster of Covid-19 in Brisbane, recommended to wear a mask on the bus.

Met up with my bestie mate Joan. We usually try and meet up for lunch and chit chat every couple of months.

We shared a chicken and mushroom pizza, followed by dessert and coffee. I opted for pavlova my favourite dessert.

I have been thoroughly spoilt today with lots of beautiful messages and some gifts.My daughter from the cattle station sent me a bottle of soup mix and a lovely poncho type garment…nice and warm .

My son posted me a monetary gift card and a packet of Gingernuts. The gingernuts are a kiwi brand that he knows I like, so does he and his beautiful wife….they are really yummy

My friend gave me a silk pillow case, an oriental bloom soy candle, earl grey tea and Griffins MellowPuffs…yum.yum.Receiving gifts is lovely but the most important thing in life for me is love and support from friends and family.I live alone and have been now for 12 years. I am not lonely. I am contented and comfortable with my life. I am happy and truly blessed.

I did order myself some more art gear

Lucky me πŸ™‚πŸ€πŸŒ»πŸŒΌπŸŒΊ

    1. I agree it truly was a wonderful way to celebrate. I had planned what to wear and had no idea what Joan would be wearing. It’s amazing how things work because of the choices we make. It was the first day of spring here in Australia so that made It even more special. πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸŒΉπŸŒΊπŸŒ»πŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸ™‚
