So for the last week I have been telling everyone I was gonna be 45, even was telling Eric that Granny will be 90 on Sunday and that is double me…and then today I realized 2009 minus 1965 is 44….I told you I hated math…..so I feel a year younger…ha! Jeff even came home from work and said "Hey Birthday Girl" and I said "I'm only 44" and he said "I was just gonna say that!!!"
Well I was due on April 1, but I came late…fooled ya Mum…maybe that is why I love having a fun time…and can't control my wackiness!
I was named after Diana Lynn, a movie star that was in Bedtime for Bonzo http://www.answers.com/topic/diana-lynn Mum spelled my middle name with an "e" at the end though.
So for my birthday here are some funny things to watch, in honor of 44 – that is what my father-in-law calls beans (old 44's) and they lead to farts…or maybe he is talking about the farts…who knows…he is a man and they think farting is cool.
The first one I hope they are not swearing cause it is not in english, it is my sister Jacqui's fault cause she put a video on her blog which led me to find this one…
How about this one…enjoy these, and then enjoy some pics I dug up…hey I say if you can't laugh at yourself…then you can't laugh at other people…
…also take notice of the hair…cupie doll-ish
Here I am taking my first Stampin' Up! order, this is before faxes, computers and the awesome on-line ordering…by the look on my face, it looks like it might have been a good one. "Hey Mummy, they want the whole color family of Bold Brights!"
As you can see I finally did get braces, I hated to smile, and my nerves gave me the usual cold sore before pictures…what a freak, I even look like a boy…thank goodness Jeff didn't know me then, he would have said "next, I pass on this one" – ha!
But what is hilarious when I was looking at these pictures, what looked like a cute cupie doll hair thing, turned into…
and if you remember last year at Convention, when I was so excited to see my banjo boy Craig Miner and rushed to get my picture taken with him…only to see…
I love this last picture, my friend Patsy sent it to me, she took it of Jeff and I eating breakfast with her and Tom in Hawaii…
Well I hope you have enjoyed this look back…it was fun digging up some of these pictures.
Some day I will post some of me and Jacqui growing up, those sure pull at my old heart strings when I realize how much I miss her and the rest of my family.
Added: OMG I just check out my little sisters blog and look what she did, she got some "us" pics…check it out!!!
Have a super Friday and thanks for stopping in!
