Friday's Smiles

If you read my previous post you will see that it has not altogether been a week of smiles. I have been on an emotional roller coaster. Just when I think things are looking better then along comes another cloud. Hoping that the weekend will see some brighter times.
My son sent me this during the week which made me smile

Below is my auntie - mum's sister who was 90 on Tuesday. Mum was due to come here to help celebrate. We managed to take auntie out for lunch - but sadly had to cancel the Afternoon Tea I had planned . We hope to do it again when mum has recovered. I didn't make this cake - a quick supermarket purchase. I have a special one for her for Sat. We are just going to have a cup of tea and cake with her. She seemed to enjoy herself - so I was pleased and it was cause to smile. Am linking to Annie's Blog - a stitch in time 


  1. Good morning Anne. I love the's so right too. Glad your Aunt had a lovely birthday and hope your mum continues to recover. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to join in the fun.

  2. What a lovely photo of your aunt with her cake. It's hard to imagine she's ninety. Do hope your mum is soon better. The pic sent by your son was cause for a big smile. Hope your week is a good one. Barbxx

  3. Yes - so true! Lovely photo of your Aunt. Best wishes to your mum - hope she feels better soon. x Jo

  4. Hoping that your mum is still recovering well - What a wonderful photo of your aunt. Have a good (Better) week xx Soojay 3

  5. Your aunt looks so well for 90 years. I am glad you were able to celebrate with her a bit. So sorry to read about your mum. What a worry for you. She sounds like quite a tough cookie, so I hope she continues to heal. She needs you now, so don´t worry about anything else. It will all still be there for you when this hurdle is crossed. Thinking of you. Hugs. Kate x

  6. Aww Bless. Sending get well hugs to your Mum. Mine is not well right now, so I kinda know what you are going through.
    Love the caption.

  7. The Minions made me smile!
    Your auntie looks great! I'm so glad you were able to (sort of) celebrate her birthday with a cake and 90 candles.
    Wishing you (and your mum) all the best.

  8. Oh, Anne she looks so wonderful and congratulations to her. I do hope your Mum gets better very soon and things improve for you too,
    Lots of love Jo x

  9. Wonderful picture and post Anne, I hope your Aunt had a wonderful birthday.

    Hugs Diane

  10. Good morning, Anne. I hope your mother has continued to improve and will be able to enjoy a belated birthday celebration with her sister very soon. Ninety is a wonderful age to reach - hope I do as well and look as pecker too. Love the cartoon your son sent you :) Wishing you a good/better week. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
