Glamorous octogenarian

This weekend sees my mam reaching her 80th birthday.
This morning I brought her up to the local hairdressers, where she gets her hair done every Saturday.
See it’s not off the ground I licked it!
When she was suitably coiffured the staff had a lovely surprise for her…….a birthday cake. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so excited. All the Blue Rinse Brigade sang a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday”.

At the risk of sounding like Pollyanna or Mother Theresa it really is small acts of kindness that make life worth living.


  1. I can see who you get your good looks from :-)

    1. I hope I also inherited the"stay younger for longer" gene :)
