A Great Week

Tuesday was the 21st of September, my birthday. I did not only have a Great Day, but also a great week. It reminded me of my 80th birthday in 2014, when I was celebrating for days on end.

The following link leads to my posts from September 2014:

Here I had some early 80th birthday celebrations with the family at Sussex Inlet in August 2014:

After the card games we asked everyone over to our unit for some drinks of sparkling wine. We had a few bottles of this and Caroline poured the sparkling wine into these blue wine glasses. We were able to use the glasses from all the different units. I mentioned that I was looking forward to my approaching birthday. I actually sang a song about my approaching birthday which may have impressed a few people!! Ha,ha. Anyhow, I was in a cheerful mood.

Here is the song (the German version);

Ich freue mich, dass ich geboren bin
und hab Geburtstag bald.
Man hat mich lieb
und schenkt mir viel,
zum Essen, Trinken und zum Spiel.
Ich freue mich, dass ich geboren bin
und hab Geburtstag bald.

The following day, Sunday, after lunch all the units had to be cleaned before we could leave. Some people were still cleaning while others were waiting outside. Here I am with the group of people who were waiting.

Ryan had come with a van and could take in it all of our stuff that did not fit into our car.

We drove back along this road. 40 means 40 kilometres.

    1. Lew, I was kept busy, busy, busy non stop. I was sometimes hardly able to have a bit of a rest in between all the deliveries, phone-calls and emails! My family was not able to see me because of the lockdown, but some of my neighbours did join me on my outside beautiful new deck for morning tea. 🙂 We are not allowed to enter each others houses. But luckily the deck provides a lot of space for outside entertainment. 🙂 Even outside no more than five people should come together. And they all have to be fully vaccinated and observe some social distancing! Our area, where I live, the Illawarra south of Sydney, is only very recently starting to come up with a lot of cases. It is expected that too many people are going to end up with Covid in hospital during the month of October!

  1. YAY for a great Birthday day and week, SweetUta!!! 🙂
    I’m so happy for you I have joy-tears in my eyes! 🙂
    And what lovely memories of past birthdays to bring you joy!
    So, did you turn 39 years old this year?!?! 😉
    (((HUGS)))) ❤ 🙂

  2. I guess, it would have been 1973, Carolyn, when I turned 39!!! 🙂
    I remember, the next year,1974 was not such a good year for us.
    Some major problems in looking after 17 year old daughter Gabriele
    developed close to my birthday in 1974. . .
    But, yes, thinking back to a lot of birthday celebrations brings me great joy.
    Your comment, dear Carolyn, is spot on as always. Thank you very much!
    Big HUGS! Yours, Uta 🙂
