“It takes a long time to grow young.”

...but I think I've just about made it, thank you, Mr. Picasso.

Here's a picture he painted of me AFTER drinking a bottle of Prosecco.

(I didn't say who had drunk the Prosecco!)

Yes, it's my birthday and I feel so very lucky to be receiving kind wishes from all over the world. And just now, there was a knock on the door and a neighbour brought a present that Laurie and Irene had organised from Australia! It's a beautiful canvas of a photo.

We are off up to London this afternoon, to have a Japanese meal and to see War Horse at the theatre. I expect I'll cry.

Just look at these remarkable puppets!

I am one very happy, very VERY lucky girl.
