6th May is Elly’s Day

Happy Birthday to my Baby.

love award

The 6th of May is for me a time of reflection. With each passing year there are more memories to ponder over. I think about all the things that Elly has accomplished over the years. From an early age she showed great promise and talent.

She became a sculptor

Dancing Queen Elly

She learned to dance to the Birdie Song

She learned to cook

She became a bookworm

Became expert at Car maintenance

Carried out surveys

Became accomplished as a needle woman

With this wealth of talent George must have a very easy life ❗

(pity we forgot to teach her to wash dishes;) )

  1. Awwww! Happy Birthday Elly!

    The Birdy song… really? πŸ˜›

    (Dunno if I should have been first to comment…)

  2. Aye, the birdie song – twas very popular in the Spanish resorts in the early 80’s! Shame, however that I’ve forgotten a lot of those talents over the years.

    Thanks Mum – I love you! xxx

  3. Well it was either the Birdie song or push pineapple etc.

    Have a great day and year ahead.

    (Mind you I was meant to be a Gemini but arrived early)

    Great family photos! Grannymar

    Talk about a proud Mum, and rightly so!

  5. Steph ~ Are you another May blossom?

    Darragh & Darren ~ You have my permission to tease her rotten tonight since I won’t be there to do it myself πŸ˜†

  6. A May blossum I am, GM…

    though the blossom’s looking a bit withered these days πŸ˜†

    I’m not telling you the date for fear of seeing my life in pics! πŸ˜‰

  7. I shan’t be teasing Elly GM (at least not while the other half is watching… he’s a big bloke!) – Darren on the other hand is fair game }:)

  8. Happy birthday Elly!
    The picture entitled ‘She became a bookworm’ has a 60’s FIAT 600D in the background. That was my first car!

  9. I can see from the photos archives that your daughter is multi-talented. I wish her a very Happy Birthday πŸ™‚

  10. Everyone, thanks for all the birthday wishes!! I’m home from work, about to pour a glass of wine and get ready to go out tonight – big party planned! I’m sure I’ll have the head to prove it tomorrow…

  11. Thanks everyone, I was out enjoying the sunshine. I am sure there will be a noisy party in Dublin tonight.

  12. LΓ‘ breithe shona duit ….. la la la la la la la

    30 ain’t the end of the twenties … it’s the beginning of a new exciting decade ….

    Happy birthday Elly …. and happy anniversary Grannymar!

  13. Happy birthday Elly πŸ™‚

    On the subject of washing dishes – Man’s work! I remember living in my first student flat on Baggot St. It was a dingy basement but it was home and it was freedom. I shared with 2 girls, one a friend’s girlfriend and the other her friend. We all landed with our assorted collections of non matching cuttlery and crockery but I also had a box which contained at least 30 mugs! Great Gillian said – We will only have to wash up once a week (and she meant it) – I spent the rest of the year cleaning up after the two of them πŸ™‚ And to cap it all I slept in the pantry which was the so called 2nd bedroom! I know this has nothing to do with your post but it just came to mind.

  14. 30 is the beginning of the rest of her life.

    Thank you everyone for the greetings.

    PaddyAnglican, Elly never learned to wash dishes ’cause her dad did all of them (his idea)!

  15. Happy birthday to your dear Elly! I’m only 6 days behind, (mine’s the 12th) but I’ll be at least 30 years older. May birthday people rule!

  16. Belated Birthday Wishes, Elly.

    I’ve been out of the loop because herself is exactly 30 years and 2 days older than you…. Sorry I should have said Janet is…..
