There was a little girl....and she had a little curl .....right in the middle of her forehead....when she was good she was very, very good...and when she was bad!!!!!!!

Mum, Dad, baby sister and me....Singapore 1960ish

I would like to wish a positive birthday my friend. 'Happy', in all the circumstances surrounding you doesn't do it. And if if "H.B." is just a cliché, then it has little value for you. But have a positive birthday, celebrate life, spoil yourself a little, or a lot, because you are a "Special One" who deserves every possible ounce of good that's going. As I believe it's true that we get what we give, then you are going to get rich rewards for all that you've given. It may not compensate, but then these things are not measurable. I hope the sun is shining down on East Anglia today for you and the day brings you all the sweetness it can.
Oh, BTW, it will be late, but what for your letterbox tomorrow or Thursday.
With all my love,
StewartXXXXXXX

Happy birthday, Ruth. Since I mostly read your main blog, I have spent this morning catching up with this blog since I last read it on the the 23 March. I did not know, therefore, about you losing your darling Mick. You have my deepest sympathy.

Sylvia said...

Happy Birthday to you. I have to tell you how much I admire you and how much you inspire me. When I get down in the "dumps" I think of you and a smile soon comes to my face. {{{{Hugs}}}} to you.

Claire said...

Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
I saw a fat monkey and i thought it was YOU!

Oh and i have decided that you need to start attaching the label the Real Ruth onto posts like this! I cant wait to hear more about Singapore.

I saw a young woman.

HUGS AND HUGS!

Ruth, love the pictures. And the poem - my mother used to say the exact same poem to me when I was little because I am a curlyhead too. "When she was bad she was horrid!" So true of me! ;-)

Would love to learn more about your past in Singapore.

Mauigirl said...

Forgot to add, I saw the young lady. Had to squint a bit and then.... poof! I could see the old lady.

Dirty Butter said...

I always see the young woman first, even though I know the old hag is there.

My birthday fell not long after Daddy's death, so I know Happy is not the right word for this birthday. But it is another milestone in your life, filled with much promise for the coming year.

Thinking of you each day, whether I blog or not.
