halfway to ninety

I've been celebrating my birthday today, helped by my sister Gill who's been staying for a few days. Last year my Dad said to me:

"Well of course you do realize that next year
you'll be halfway to ninety..."


I'm looking on the bright side - another forty five years? Fantastic!

Happy, happy birthday dear Diana and SNAP! So, I'm older by 3 months eh? It was a darned good year wasn't it! Hope you had a wonderful day and I'll buy you a belated birthday coffee and cake at our next meet-up (which feels way overdue!). Much love sweet friend xx

I'm the same age as you! Though just between you and me, 90 isn't long enough. I'm aiming for 120.

Happy Birthday. That cupcake looks delicious, I'd take a bite out of that in a second. Chocolate is such a good flavor. I hope I'm on my halfway point in life, because that would mean I'd get to be 108, I'd like that if I was sound of mind and body.
