Today it is my dear friend Penny's birthday,
HaPpY bIrThDaY, pEnNy!
For a bit of fun she requested that as a birthday 'gift' we post a link to a photograph of ourselves in our 'blogging position'. She also made a specific request that I should be wearing my new, as of yesterday, reading glasses.
So here I am, in my blogging position in my new reading glasses, in the style of the film Calendar Girls - sadly I didn't have any cakes and Hope's chocolate brownies piled up in front of me just didn't look right ;0)
Luke asks, "Why, Mum, why?"
Why not, son? It's fun and I've made sure I've covered up enough of my bits so small children and cats won't be traumatized.
"But what if one of my friends should stumble across your blog?"
How likely is that? That one of your zombie-killing, bedroom- dwelling, small world outlook friends should 'stumble' across the crafting blog of a middle aged woman. I think you're safe there, love.
Thank you to Hope for taking the photo (one of many before the balance of what was concealed and what was revealed was just about right. Hope preferred the one that had just the top of my head poking out the top of the flowers!).
I hope Penny gets lots of photos - it'd be lovely to put faces to names.
Penny's fun blog is here so you could go and have a look (and wish her a Happy Birthday too).
Have a lovely day, Penny.
