Happy Birthday Sharon

Donna offered this lovely picture this morning ! and as I've said before ,how does she do it ?always the approropriate picture just when I need it ,its so uncanny Thankyou Donna ,My daughter Sharon Jayne is fourty three today .Wish Sharon could be so obliging ,she hates having her picture taken so I dont have many of her ,anyway fourty three years ago ,I was blessed with a little girl ,after having two sons I was delighted ,She herself has three sons ,Iain ,Stuart and Paul,its Pauls girl friends little girl Keira who Sharon is holding in the picture above ,and we have taken little Keira into the fold ,as ours ,Sharon is the Mum of my only Grand-daughter Charlotte

Was talking to Sharon earlier ,she and her partner Ian  have just come back from Weymouth ,where they went for the golf ,They went sight seeing as well  ,they went to Portland bill ,reminds me of the shipping forcasts on the radio ! and to Lullworth cove ,where the bore hole sprays you with sea spray ,asked if she had taken any pictures she said she hadnt gone near to it ,,far too sheer ,Hmm sounds like her Mum ,she has also bought herself a pair of pink boots .Will need to see them !

Was thinking of things that happened around the time of her birth I remember we moved,from a delightful cottage ,two bedrooms, to a council house all mod cons ,supposing we had stayed put, built on .The cottage had so much character ,but no I wanted my modern house ! You change your thinking as you get older dont you ?The cottage is still there tastefully done up with out losing any of its character ,and is worth pots of money now .

I think Sharon was about five weeks old ,when we moved and I can remember,I had put the boys to bed ,Sharon was in her pram  ...I was watching television ,with Mick when the news flash came on ...President Kennedy had been shot....so yes like everyone else I can remember where I was and what I was doing .......

So have a lovely day Sharon and a good weekend everyone        With Love From

Happy Birthday Sharon.  Oh memories Jan eh?  I know what you mean about that cottage and how you wish now you had kept it.  Our second home was like that, not a cottage, but it needed extra room. We should have taken out another mortage and got it done up.  You should see it now, beautiful, the people have done what we should and it is gorgeous with all the extra room we needed.  Still, you think you make the right decisions at the time. That is life.  Have a great weekend my friend. Look forward to talking to you when you get your mic

Happy Birthday to your Sharon...my daughter Julie will be 45 in December.  I can remember that awful November day, too..just a few weeks before Julie's 3rd birthday.  Hope Sharon has a wonderful day.  Linda in WA

Happy Birthday Sharon ~ Sounds like they had a nice time out in Weymouth ~ Golf and sight seeing sounds good to me ~ Pink boots sound interesting ~ Odd when you mentioned President Kennedy I remembered exactly where I was when the news came through that he had been assasinated ~ some things you never forget ~ Ally

Happy birthday Sharon! I hope you have a lovely day! I've been to Lulworth Cove, it's a lovely place. When you're young you want all the mod cons but when you get older you suddenly see all the charm in those old places! Jeannette xx

Happy Birthday to Sharon,  Thank you also Jan for your memories of the time she was baby.  You are right, we do change our values as grow older, if only we had the wisdom back then.  We visit Lulworth and Portland Bill every year when we visit Dorset.  I always think of the shipping forcast too!  Mind you, that part of the coast is notoriously difficult.

Hi Jan  Happy B'day to Sharon.  I must be the only person on the planet who doesnt remember what she was doing when Kennedy shot!!   I was working nights and hardly knew my own name around that time...my excuse anyway.     The cottage sounds lovely ..I moved into a pretty old cottage years ago and  promptly destroyed it by having the old range cooker (coal) taken out plus the old ornate fireplaces from  bedrooms up stairs .....had moved from london modern house and wasnt having coal etc  in the cottage  ...what an idiot I was!!  Will never forgive myself for that even though only sold it 3 years ago.   Eve

I know how it is with the memories...every time one of my children has a birthday I am reminded how fast time flies by.  Happy Birthday to your daughter and many more blessed memories for you.  'On Ya' - ma

Yes, I know what you mean about moving home but, I am pleased to say, our new home is one that we should have been in years ago.

I hope you and your family are happy where you are living at the moment.

By for now,

John.

Memories of the past. As we get older birthdays seem to trigger memories like yours. I am going backwards now but my grandchildren cannot wait to be older! Daft isn't it! Love Conniex

You have a point Jan, I think Donna is telepathic! I have noticed the graphics often tie in with your subject! lovely picture of both girls, and yes, you do change as you get older. I have noticed that with different stuff Linda xx

Happy Birthday, Sharon!  There's nothing like the mother/daughter bond!  What a lovely entry and tribute to your daughter.  She's lucky to have a great mom like you!

Happy Birthday to Sharon!  So glad to meet your lovely Charlotte's lovely mum.  LOL..you do seem to have many males in your family.  I'm also laughing because when I was younger, I wanted that modern home.  Definitely with age comes wisdom.  xx  Chris
