K K Katey my beautiful Katey

May 16,1967.is the Birthday of my youngest ,and you've all heard about our Kate ,in fact she often comments on this journal ,as Kgermanshepherd .She is having so much trouble at the moment with her back ,and today has an appointment,for some physio ;and usually after she's been for a couple of days, is in alot of discomfort ,she is going on holiday in two weeks so we are hoping she will soon get some benefit from the treatments .

 

Kate is married to Martin who's Birthday was last month ,and has two very dear sons Matt and Sam .As I said she is my baby ,she hates me saying that,she not keen on me calling her Catherine either ....but I'm her Mum  SO ....she has two older brothers Mark and Derek and Sharon her older sister ..........I used to tease her ,and say she was my tin baby ,because I dropped a clanger when she was concieved ,of course it really was a joke we wouldnt be without her ,she is my rock ,I can rely on my Kate ,she is my daughter but she is also a very  dear friend too .....

And not only is it Kates Birthday ,Action man is forty today ,imagine we've had that little plastic man around all that time ,the first one didnt have that fuzzy hair,  in the begining it was plastic ,both my boys had action men and I know all my Grandsons have had them too ,Hmm I wonder if now he's forty they will give him a baldy head or even grey hair ?

John came this morning at ten o clock and went home at two thirty !dont ask me what he did ,you know computers are  time comsuming arent they ? he put all my pictures onto disc freed up loads of space and numerous other things ,the only thing was the minute I came to prepare for this entry ,I wanted to scan some beautiful pictures of my lovely baby ,the printer/ scanner refuses to work ,so I am bumbling along in my own inimatable way !

Karen ,who works for the company I worked for, has persuaded me to go onto the tenant participation team, and she is picking me up at one fifteen  tomorrow , we are going to discuss the news letter ,I was on that team before I retired so she wants me continue ,then on Thursday I am off to Oakham ,Lincs with the over sixty group so its a full week ,I have just nticed I have 104 alerts still awaiting my attention,oh and before I go I'd better 'fess up  Sandra ,I pinched the birthday graphic from you ,  but bless her heart when she heard I'd lost everything the other day she told me she got stuff I could use next week ,Hopefully I'm up and running again.. so touch wood !

Have a lovely evening everyone ,with Love from 

Thankyou for this Donna,I will be in touch soon xxx

Goodness, don't tell Oakhamites that they're in Lincolnshire or they'll have your guts for garters Jan - it took years of campaigning for them to get the county of Rutland disinterred from it's amalgamation with Leicestershire and they take being the smallest county in England very very seriously  :O)

I hope she gets some relief from the physio, I had some years ago and it really made all the difference.  Glad you like the graphic Jan, like I said, snag away...lol  It`s about time Action Man was pensioned off if you ask me...lol! :o)

Happy birthday Kate - all the best people are born in May you know. ;O)
I remember action man, used to be all different ones,:Action man - 'Alpencorps' Action man - 'Commando' etc, etc. My dad swore  he bought me Action man - 'coward' for Christmas one year, but before he could wrap it, he ran away! :O(
104 alerts! Sheesh! Where do you find the time?

Happy Birthday to your "baby", Kate!  Megan is my baby and also hates being called that although she uses it as her SN.  I didn't realize you lost all your stuff.  I had that happen last summer.  My oldest hooked up an external drive/back up drive for me.  Glad you got your pictures backed up.  Have a good day tomorrow.  HUGS  Chris

You are so fortunate to have had such wonderful children and to have had Katie last and to be such good friends is a blessing.  I hope she had a wonderful birthday and will have a terrific year.                  Kathy

Happy Belated Birthday to Kate.   I hope her back feels better before she goes on  her trip.   Have fun on your trip with the ladies too.     Dawn      http://journals.aol.com/adlessor/ACoupleofNomads/

Kate sounds like a lovely daughter. My youngest Leah was born on May 14, 1961 early in the morning on Mother's Day. She is a treasure too. It use to always rain on her birthday and it became a standard joke. This year I wished for it but it didn't happen here. She called to tell me it was raining where she lives 3 1/2 hours away. Hope her back better for her holiday. Paula

You talk of her with such love...  obvious in every word.  Daughters are so special, aren't they?

Glad you got your computer up and running right!
