Six word Saturday


Overwhelmed with wishes!  Thank you all!

I seem to've got myself in a hole at the moment!

I seem to’ve got myself in a bit of a hole!

You’ll be able to find out where on next Monday’s walk, but meanwhile I have some serious catching up to do!  I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has left comments on the blog in the past week.  I’ll be visiting you as soon as I possibly can.

I had a wonderful birthday, and the smile on my face wasn’t even seriously dented when my mobile phone made a bid for freedom from the bottom of my bag and swam off beneath the ferry!  It did, of course, provide much amusement for the other passengers.  I hope you’ll excuse me if I simply post a quick gallery of highlights.

Such delightful memories!  Here’s wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  I’m off to visit Cate at Show My Face and check out Six Word Saturday. See you soon!



    1. It was a definite antique, Suze. I’d been debating a new one for 2 years. No excuse now 🙂 I’m fine- just a little gobsmacked. Why do these things happen to me? 🙂


    1. No gifts, Mrs. M- the ‘day out’ is that, and my choice of whatever I want to do. 🙂 The lizards adorn the wall of our favourite restaurant. I suppose they might let you buy one but I’m not sure. Pressie is going to have to be a new phone. The old one was a seriously bad swimmer. 🙂 🙂

  1. I thought of the joke “Is a thing lost if you know where it is Dad?” ” No, why?” ” Your camera is at the bottom of the ocean, I dropped over the side of the boat.”
    It is not funny when it is for real,
    Good attitude you never lost your smile and never lit it spoil a happy birthday.


      1. Take a scuba diver with you next birthday.
        Pleased you can laugh about it.
        As I said too Pauline “It is bad enough having your purse stolen, without letting it spoil your day.”


  2. I love the contrast between our respective birthday celebrations! However, we share the smile on the face, and a mobile phone – yours went, my new one arrived. I’m so glad it was good. The photos prove it!


    1. Thanks, Meg 🙂 We had been discussing a new phone as mine was purely an antique. If Mick hadn’t witnessed ‘the calamity’ I think I might have been accused of losing it deliberately. 🙂


  3. What a fabulous birthday you had, Jo! Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures with us. 🙂 Take easy on catching up, see you next Monday! 🙂


  4. Happy belated birthday Jo what a fabulous way to celebrate. Had to chuckle about the phone and it’s swim to freedom… Ah well now you have an excuse, you can buy the latest and greatest in phone wizardry… 🙂


  5. Aah Jo your gallery tells us all you’ve had splendid time away – you do look a happy bunny 🙂
    Happy Belated’s !
    Ease back into it all there’s no rush . Keep that buoyant holiday feeling going as long as possible !
