Its my birthday
Its my 60th birthday on Thursday. I guess I am definately over the hill now. Can't kid myself any longer about being only middle age. I am an OAP an old age pensioner. I don't think I am quite ready for it mentally but my bank account will like seeing that little (yes it is a bit little) bitty pension going in there each month.
The only picture I have of myself in recent years is the one I have on the blog and that was taken in 1998 so there is a bit more grey and a tad more wrinkles but basically I look the same.
There is a woman in the village that shares the same birthday with me although she is older, thankfully, I couldn't stand a younger woman to spend my first OAP birthday with. Last year I took her out to lunch this year she is taking me. I bought her some flowers and a card today. That is about the extent of my imagination when it comes to gift giving.
I have had a lot of ups and downs in my life but I thank God everyday that He brought me through. It is also International Women's Day so if you are an international woman, enjoy.
