Army v Navy at Twickenham

Me and my better-half had a fun day out on Saturday to watch the Army V Navy Rugby at Twickenham.  A brilliant day with huge crowds, beer tents, numerous foodie stands and seeing old friendly faces from our days when we both served in the Royal Signals in Germany in the Army.

it was an excellent game where we beat the Navy 48 - 9, sang along to Sweet Chariot

and the cloudy, drizzley day did not spoil the fun - or that of the five streakers in total..........

another birthday :)

Tomorrow will be my 51st Birthday - a day when you accept that you are definately in your 50's and to be honest it does not feel too bad.  Yes, I have quite a tum, the bread diet was tough and came to a juddering stop - due to my shameful lack of willpower.  The odd wrinkle on my face, 3 liver spots on my hands, and too many grey hairs to count, but I feel good and the fall into the crafting world has given me a huge lease of life.

To celebrate we will be travelling to Twickenham to watch the Army V Navy Rugby which I am so looking forward to, having both served in the Army in the days of Northern Ireland, the Falklands and when you could get postings to Singapore or Hong Kong.  We will be meeting up with some old faces (including our own) at the Royal Signals Association beer-tent and I am sure a good time will be had by all.

There will be no extravagent pressies as my poor hubby is in and out of work during this ever-lasting recession - but I will hold him close to my heart and we will keep smiling through - somehow when you are a little down on your uppers you do seem to laugh more :)

So Happy Birthday to me, on reflection I do have a lot to look forward to and god willing we may even get the odd day when we get to do our Happy Dance !
