Happy Birthday, Viv!

1 Dec

Our lovely Viv is 75 today!

Happy Birthday!

Viv is still in hospital but on the mend and desperate to access the internet.

To celebrate her birthday, I have written a simple senryu, to complement the one she wrote yesterday, in her hospital bed, on the spot and over the phone to her daughter, who posted it on Viv’s blog.


Viv has been alive
for seventy-five years.  I
am glad she is here.

Visit her blog and
push her numbers up to
80k.  Make her day.


Happy Birthday, Viv!  We miss you.

For more Six Word Saturdays, go here.

    That’s lovely, Tilly. You know where I’m off to next! Love your festivey Christmas header. Have a good weekend.

    At first I thought I had clicked onto the wrong blog (it doesn’t take much to confuse me) when I saw your festive theme! Very Christmassy! 🙂
    Get well wishes to Viv from me too.

    Thanks for the update. Lovely poetic tribute, too. I’m heading over now.

    As for your blog’s new look: it’s nice, but….Christmasy. This grinch will merely tolerate for the season.

    Of course I will pop over to Viv’s blog and wish her a happy birthday.
    Love your new christmassy page!

    Oh wonderful – glad to hear she is feeling better. I was missing her submissions to the poetry challenge.
    I am risking the loss of Maltesers to say Love, love, love the Festive Look!

    I love the look this year, a Christmas card; very creative. Happy birthday Viv! I am hoping that she is feeling better and not going to stir crazy.

    Visiting for the fist time, from Six-Word Saturday. Wishing Viv well, and ignorant: what is the form of a senryu?

    Belated Happy Birthday to Viv. Hope she’s soon well enough to go home again. 🙂

    I am overwhelmed with all the support and good wishes, and it’s all thanks to my two proxy bloggers, Tillybud and Sally. Thank you all from the bottom of my newly repaired heart, which is very happy to be home at last.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
