BUSY HAVING FUN

I haven't had much time for blogging this past week due to too much partying. TOH celebrated his 70th  three times. First with Birthday Bear on Tuesday and.......... 

on Wednesday he celebrated at a surprise dinner at Baguette, a nice French Restaurant in town. Our daughter, Carol and SIL David flew from Sydney to spend a few days with us for Bill's birthday. He thought we were just having dinner with them but I invited a few more of his friends.
 On Saturday night we celebrated again just with family and it was time to say goodbye to our children as they were flying back home the next day.
We had a delicious dinner at Baan Thai Restaurant close to home.

 My SIL, David and I were having a happy time. I was trying out the camera on my new iphone for the first time on this night. Unfortunately the photos  are a bit grainy due to the low light.
During the 4 days that they were here we had iphone lessons. Oh to have fast thinking brains like these young ones.

  1. Ha, all young people have had to learn is Iphone. We have had to learn crank phones, dial phones, Ericaphones, plastic phones, then mobile bricks, then weird mobile phones. How good are we!

  2. It is fun to have an I-phone, I only hardly use the phone. I like all the other things like wordfeud etc. Bill must know by now he is 70 I think ha,ha.

  6. Three times 70= two hundred and ten. But Bill doesn't look a day over 65.

  9. That is completely true! The kids coming up today and so technically advanced from birth. It's just amazing. I got a smart phone and in many ways every day it prove itself to be much smarter than I am. Frustrating, also.

  16. Please pass on my birthday wishes to Bill. What a terrific milestone! It looks like he had a great time celebrating this rather special birthday.

  17. I'm a HUGE fan of multiple significant birthday celebrations! That way you get to spend quality time with everyone - AND you get several special meals instead of just one!!! I don't need to ask if you all had a great time - it's obvious!

  19. Diane thanks for letting me know that there was a problem with the link, hopefully sorted! We have also bee celebrating 70 birthdays, must be the year for them, mine come up in August! Not sur I would have a clue what to do with an iPhone, I still have a very old Nokia that only does calls and texts and that is it! Take care Diane
