Good morning lovely ladies! Happy Friday to you! Lets think of the past week and what has made us smile.
I received a few postcards through Postcrossing that were especially for my birthday. (Birthdays are in the profile). The first one comes from Switzerland. I love black and white photography and this older lady is wishing me happy birthday with her snazzy spectacles. What a hoot! I love it!
The stamps are great too. The one on the left is from a series of railway stations. This particular one is Fleurier, in the Val de Travers. The ladybird is from a series for special occasions. Those occasions where people send each other mail. Congratulations, good luck etc.
The stamp is large and impressive: It features the Czech crown jewels. Visible are the St Wenceslas Crown, the Royal Scepter and the Royal Apple. They are Stored in the Crown Chamber of St Vitus in Prague , where they are brought out only on special occasions.
This week I have had lots to smile about. Saturday was my birthday and I wanted to invite my friends, but the weather was not so nice so we had to stay indoors. Still, we had a nice gathering. I had ordered an ice cream cake and I got the candles out ready. Someone took this picture with the candles showing I would be 86. I don't think so...
I quickly put them the correct way. We were laughing so much that we continued to cut the cake and eat the ice cream. Until someone reminded me that I hadn't lit the candles and they hadn't sung 'Happy Birthday'. Oh dear.
I had a sponge cake too, so we put the candles on that and this is me blowing out the candles. You can see there isn't much left of the ice cream cake. It was delish.
Here is a photo of me and all my girl friends (the men are there too but they are keeping themselves out of the picture) . Only the three ladies in the foreground are actually Spanish. In the back row nationalities from L to R: US, Irish Rep, Netherlands, Peru, Mexico.That is it from me today. Now I'm off to Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
As usual I finish with some funnies I found on the internet. The engineering flowchart is so true. I think my hubby has one that he follows.
Have a great weekend,
