The Ups and Downs of a Big-Zero Birthday

This is going to be a very quick blog as today is my Big-Zero Birthday... hurray!
But we had to set the alarm early for Mr A’s hospital appointment... boo!

Family and friends are coming for the weekend... hurray!
But I have a shopping list that’s almost as long as the Isner/Mahut tennis match... boo!

The weather is going to be scorching... hurray!
But that will make guest babies, oldies and dogs fractious... boo!

We have people staying in relays, some on Saturday night, others on Sunday night. I’m so organised... hurray!
But I may well run out of clean sheets... boo!

Hang on! None of this matters because today is my Big-Zero Birthday and I’m going to enjoy my weekend. Next week I may even blog about it.


  1. Happy Birthday! Sometimes those Big Zero birthdays can be so stressful!! Hope yours is nice.

  2. Happy Birthday, Rosalind! Sounds like you have a fantastic bash planned. Love the "ups and downs". Look forward to hearing more!

  3. Happy birthday! How nice to have a reason to celebrate!

  4. Happy birthday - I bet everything works out beautifully! Hope you get some more Wimbledon watching squeezed in there too :)

  5. Happy Birthday! I too have a Big Zero birthday coming up soon too! We just get better as we age. ;-)

  6. Thank you to everyone for my birthday wishes. The last of the house guest have gone. It's been lovely but I am now almost asleep on my feet. It must have something to do with age... normal service will be resumed as soon as I've had a night's sleep!

  7. Happy Birthday Rosalind! The question is: which big O birthday is it@ :) Burning minds want to know. Hope you have a great one.
