I don't want you to get bored looking at me and hubby in the garden last year, so I'll show it to you in the daylight, my refuge where the foxes wander.
There is not much that many of you don't know about me now, I enjoy a good laugh and if I can find one I will. If I can make someone smile my day is complete. I enjoy people and people watching but do not suffer fools easily, mainly because my dad told me I would be one when I grew up, and I think he may have been right.
I was born in Yorkshire and the extended family are still there but we now live in Staffordshire, we being my husband of 33 years and our two sons, well one of them has left and lives with his partner a girl whom we love dearly.
My latest hobby is writing and from this I am learning a great deal from and about people, that write.
My latest, latest thing to keep me occupied is making myself a nice new fleece top, it's getting cold and my old one; which must be 12 years old has had to be sent to a better place and I miss it already RIP>

My First Soup Birthday. Not A Joke
Blog Posted:10/1/2012 1:55:00 AM


Two of our special ladies have just had birthdays and both requested birthday poems... I have never had a birthday card never mind a poem... Strange I know, especially when I could have had two every year. My recognised birthday the 23 Aug and my maybe birthday: 23 Sept. The reason behind this is that my parents noticed there was a mistake on my Birth Certificate; it was wrong by one month, but neither parent remembered if they put the mistake right and they never agreed which was the correct one.  There was rather a lot of us though and my little brother appeared within the next twelve months followed within twelve months by my little sister so I can sort of understand.  An eagle eyed souper has pointed out that my first soup birthday is this month on the 8th. Will anyone send me a Soup birthday poem PLEASE I was considering running this as a contest; My first one, but because there have just been two already, I think it may be over kill. But if someone would to write me a poem I would love it...

    I like how you add "Not A Joke" to some of your blogs....that in itself is a good statement concerning your overall blogs ha! Happy 1st Soup Birthday, Mandy! The Birth Certificate situation is quite intriguing. I see that people have already written Birthday Greetings for you -- how nice :D Hmmm, the pic is making me thirsty....

    Of the two amazing statements here, that you have never had a birthday card is to me the more strange. I certainly hope you receive enough to make up for the lack in other years. I will be posting one for you shortly. Love, Joyce

    Gosh, Mandy, I wish I had the time to think of a cute little poem for you off the cuff. I am glad Debs did one for you. that seems so strange to me that a mother could not remember giving birth to a child in one month or another!! I did make a tiny mistake, however, with my son. Since I went into labor with him AUG. 23, I had that date stuck in my head and almost put it on the birth announcement until Joe reminded me that I had actually given birth to Jeremy on Aug. 24. Anyway, like YOU, my son is a witty guy!! BIG BIRTHDAY HUG for YOU, though it's late. Luv, Andrea

    Thanks Debbie that's lovely, don't get me wrong my parents did their best as everyone does, it was just less than perfect, as everyone is, I think you just get lost in the crowd when there is lot of, and I still love them dearly. My dad has been gone 14 years now, but my mum is still kicking strong xx
