Diary Of A Fifty-Year Old (3)

30 Sep


Lunch.  A girl may be old, but she’s gotta eat.


Into Stockport.  The Hub wanted me to have something to open on my birthday because I couldn’t open London, so he bought me a beautiful eternity ring. Because of my weight loss, however, it was too large for my finger and needs to be re-sized.  While I was chatting to the jeweller the Hub spotted a pretty little ring, gold with pink sapphires…and now I have two new rings!

But I only got one writing magazine.  He’s so mean.


Collected Tory Boy from the station and cooed and fussed enough to make him want to get straight back on the train to Peterborough.

Highlights coming up: 

  • Chinese for dinner
  • Creative Writing class
  • Take out my contact lenses

    Enjoy the rest of the day.

    You’re making me (and probably lots of others) jealous, TB. Thanks for keeping us posted, though, even if it does seem you’re fishing for multiple “Happy Birthday” wishes. Again, Happy Birthday, TB!

    The Hub is clearly a keeper.

    Sounds like a pretty good day! It’s 2 pm my time and I am still waiting for lunch. Hubby is supposedly bringing back a sub for me. Guessing no rings will be hidden inside.
    Thought you might like to know, I did a candy salad treat bag for my son’s birthday party loot bags: there may have been a few Maltesers in there! And they were a big hit. Now the kids keep asking for them. I’ve hidden the rest of the stash in the china gravy boat in my cupboard. Which means, I’d better finish them all before Thanksgiving.
    I feel confident I can do it.

    Two rings? Wow! The Hub really does like you. Hahaha!

    Lucky you! I always wanted an eternity ring… and then you got TWO? Wow! He needs to come talk to my husband. 🙂

    Sounds like you are having an excellent day so far. You have a very generous husband – TWO rings AND a magazine!

    Tilly, you tell the Hub that the song says Five golden rings!!

    Happy Birthday, Tilly. Your hubby sounds like such a sweetie. The rings are are wonderful pressie to open. I adore pressies that come in very small packages. 🙂

    What a life you lead…..

    A ring does need to be repeated, to be sure, to be sure.
    Not sure if I’ll be able to take the suspense in contact lens removal … 🙂

    do we get to see the rings?

    Mmmm Chinese. Hope you enjoyed, Tilly!
    Happy Birthday!

    Is that what the book 50 Shades of Grey is all about? Well, now I feel a little embarrassed. Somehow I got the idea in my head it was about something different entirely. I’ve clearly got a warped mind.


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.
