I Shouldn't Have Counted My Chickens!

So far the day has had some hitches -
in fact, it started with two glitches!
Wide awake at four am
I only went to sleep again
when the clock crawled close to seven.
Then I dozed right off. Ah, heaven!
At 7.30 there's my Bro,
phoning from New Zealand!. So -
here I am, now rather dozy,
proud possessor of a posy
from my pal who came to lunch,
plus owner of a super bunch
of flowers from my son and daughter.

They are safely tucked in water,
while I am heading towards my bed
for a little nap instead!

Morning mishap made me curse -
my computer died, or worse.
Two hours later, clever son
had more or less the battle won
and there was Blogger good as new,
so I could come and talk to you,
My birthday's not quite been ball,
but thank you people one and all...

And it can only get better from here in! LOL


  1. Happy Birthday to you
    And a big O one too.
    Bake a cake and put the flags out
    in Blogland for you.

    Have a lovely day!

  2. Oh gosh, computer problems, what a birthday present. You're so lucky to have a clever son fix the dastardly machine! Happy rest of your birthday!

  3. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, Jinksy. :)

  4. Good peeping from someone who is no spring chicken. haha

    PS: My word verification is subfogie. Meaningful?

  5. Happy Birthday Jinksy.
    Too bad about the computer but glad your son could fix it. What would we do without these handy sons?

  6. I missed your blog for a couple of days
    So didn't join in with the versified praise,
    I coulda, I woulda, I shoulda, 'tis true,
    So this birthday greeting I now send to you.
    You were two days old the day I was born,
    All my life I've been younger, and much more forlorn;
    Since your party's over and you're feeling fine,
    Please hop o'er to my place to take part in mine!
    I'll be pleased as punch iffen your name I see;
    You don't even have to R.S.V.P.!

  7. Belatedly wishing you a Happy Birthday - in fact, why not celebrate it today?

  8. Sorry Pen missed the actual day but hope it was a good 'un!

  9. Happy Birthday!!! You don't look your age, kid.

  10. Ah, thank goodness for that clever son, eh?

  11. A belated happy 70th birthday from me too Pen. Incidentally, where does your son live in New Zealand? - Dave

  12. Oh, I'm so sorry I missed such a momentous day! That is one heck of a number. Congratulations, darling auntie of mine!
