Happy birthday to you!

Good morning dear friends,

Here we are again, a wonderful weekend before us ... hope that you have all had a great week.

We have another birthday in the family and this time, the 6th of June was my dear husbands special day.

Unfortunately though we have both come down with colds.
We had to celebrate the birthday, so it was a lovely lunch sitting out in the sunshine at Euro,  but as so often when you have a cold,  you can not really taste the food much. It was one of those beautiful clear blue sky days when you are happy to be enjoying the day and this is the view we looked out on.

 That night we were in bed by 7.30 as the flu does make you feel tired and worn out.
It is so true, that one hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours of sleep after midnight.
The next day we both felt a lot better.
Today we are going to do a final push to finish the decorating in the lounge -  I can't wait to get things sorted back into the room.

Hope to catch up with you all and your lovely blogs soon.
Wishing you all a happy weekend


  1. Happy birthday to your husband, Carolyn! Sorry to hear that you didn't feel well, I wish you both a quick recovery. You were celebrating in a beautiful spot, the calmness of the sea brings instant relaxation and the view... stunning.

    Have a great weekend and get well soon xx

  2. Hey Carolyn,
    want me tell you just a short "hello!"
    Get well soon again!

  3. Carolyn,
    I saw your pink roses on my blog, and had to come over and take a peek. They are so pretty. So sorry you both were sick for husband's birthday, but it sounds like you still had a nice time. The view is just lovely.

    Have fun decorating your lounge, and get some rest this weekend. Those flus are hard on the body.


  4. Oh, Carolyn, I'm so sorry both of you have the nasty flu! As you know Richard and I had it a couple of months ago. Not fun! Take it easy!
