A Very Happy Birthday to you Both

  Wishing her Majesty,Our Dear Queen Elizabeth a very happy 80th Birthday  .

The sun is shining for you Ma am ,we all hope you have a lovely day ,

Today is the day ,the pound  coin came out twenty three years ago,So its that long since you had  a note in your purse or wallet ,But not if you live in Scotland !

And how do I know this ?Well today is the Birthday of my dear Eldest Grandson Iain Michael ,yes he's twenty three today  ,so as you can see I found a few,pictures of him growing up ,sadly we dont see too much of him now he lives and works in London ,and I understand will soon be making a career move to Germany ,go for it Iain !!although we dont see him,he rings me up ,recently to ask about his 'family tree'I was able to take him back to my Great grandparents ,so that was a good result for him.One memory I have of this young man was when he was about eight and a Michael Jackson fan ,his Mum had bought him a video,and as I was baby sitting ,he asked would I like to watch it ? Oh yes please ! we did THREE times right through ,Sharon laughed when they came in ,said you should have said no after the first time ,Arent Granny's soft ?...and then as a little fellow we walked into town with his new buggy ,he would be about 18months old at the time ,I stood in the bus depo ,and missed three buses I couldnt collapse the wretched buggy , another young Mum helped me in the end ,when we got home and I told Sharon she said he could have done it for you Mum !! 

Arent Birthdays Fun ,Shall we all have a slice of cake ?

There we go ! that should be big enough for us all to have a piece,Have a lovely day everyonewhether its your Birthday or not ,With Love from Jan /Gran xxxxxx

A pound in my wallet? I should be so lucky. Wifey doesn't give me any pocket money and I have to rely on my friends to keep me in beer.  :O(

Hi Jan,  A smashing entry.  Happy Birthday to Iain and to Her Majesty.  I would have liked to go along and watch the walkabout as I live nearby, but I know what Windsor is like during a Royal event.  It`s much easier to watch from the comfort of an armchair. :o)

Your grandson looks very handsome. Birthdays are great fun when they are little. I have great memories of birthday parties for my kids and the grandkids too. Queen looks pretty good for 80 doesn't she? Love Conniex

Happy 23rd Iain!  And a Happy 80th to Queen Elizabeth.  She still looks good, doesn't she!  I like the new warning labels on strollers.  "Please remove baby before folding up!"  Sheesh!  Whatever happened to common sense? LOL

Take Care!
