Friday Smiles

Evening Everyone,

I'm joining in with Annie's Friday Smile, albeit a tad late in the day. My computer has been playing up these last two days. It's old, 7 years old, and starting to run a bit slow ... a bit like your truly, I guess ... so I've been doing a bit of clearing out of old files and it's proving a long and time consuming job! Still, it's like spring cleaning, it just has to be done.

On to what's made me smile this week. Usually I have a struggle deciding which photo(s) to choose to show but this week it's really easy.

It had to be these two photos of my lovely granddaughter-in-law, Heather, after passing her driving test - first time! Could there be a bigger smile!!!

And the funny for this week is a poem written by one of my all-time my heroines, Maya Angelou. With just a couple of years till I hit the sparkling seventies this could have been written with me in mind :)

Have a wonderful weekend,


  1. Huge congrats to Heather...def worth a big smile. I love the poem's so perfect for ladies of a certain age. :-)

  2. Well done Heather, quite an achievement. Safe and happy driving to her.
    That poem is oh, so, true and it all applies to ME!!! I must be getting smaller as my 6 year old grandie is up to my shoulder now.
    Have a great weekend and I hope the sun shines where you are,
