Hubby gave me money to get my hair done, and here is the result:
My darling 23 yr old son, Ben made me the best Beef Rogan Josh with Rice for dinner
and a Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Frosting and 'Happy Birthday' out of Banana Slices. yummo:

Little Miss Innocent!!

Meet 'Little Miss Innocent':

Her name is Allie and she is an 8 1/2 yr old Labrador Cross.
When I went for a nap, I had accidentally left the remnants of my lunch in a bowl on the arm of the lounge.
I got up, and you guessed it noo food left in bowl:

Allie must have jumped up on the lounge, eaten the food, licked the bowl clean, and jumped back down. LOL

When I got up from my nap and saw the empty bowl, I had to laugh!!

When I said to her: 'Allie, did you eat the food in the bowl?' she looked at me, bowed her head and ran from the room!! LOL

As I said: 'Little Miss Innocent'!!

All Done!!

Yayyyy!! Roof is done & roadwork done!! It's soooo quiet. LOL

Noise, Noise & More Noise!!

It doesn't rain but it pours in my street.
They start doing roadworks in the street.... Then they disappear.
Then.... The roofers arrive to replace the roof.
Guess who came back today? Yes you guessed it.... The roadworks started up again.
It's utter bedlam. LOL
Trucks everywhere all vying for space in a street that doesn't have a lot of room to begin with.
Oh, well hopefully they will all disappear soon.

Oh Lord, please, please keep me sane!! AARRGGHH!! LOL

Getting Older

It's funny as we get older how many things start to go wrong with our health. I've had osteo-arthritis since the age of 16 ( I'm now nearly 51). It started in my knees and ankles, then a few years later my hands. Even more years later my back. Then my jaw. Now my hips. LOL.

The way I look at it, if I don't laugh about it, then I'll start crying. But the good news is: at least I have both hands and both legs and my mind. So as far as I am concerned, I have nothing whatsoever to complain about. Do I?

Happy Easter everybody. Spend some time showing your family just how much you love them and appreciate them.
