Mr Life: OAP


Thank you so much for your kind admiration of our hall. I would like to take full credit for it since I had the idea of knocking down that bit of wall. However, I have to admit that ... umm ... I didn't have any practical input. Stevie and George did the building, Mr Life did the decorating and the floor chaps put the floor down. I supplied encouragement and cups of tea and afterwards did a bit of dusting. I also found the spare wallpaper, forgotten in a cupboard, which meant that we could make the remaining bit of wall match the rest of the hall without having to redo the whole lot. (It's a sort of blue-ish green, Lynley.)

Today is Mr Life's 65th birthday (yes, hasn't he worn well? it's the way I've pampered him over the years). He got a watch and some railway books and Grandson got a sandpit.

 He liked it.


You can see by his hooded top and corduroy trousers that it wasn't exactly blazing hot summer weather.


The sandpit has a roof to keep the sun off him...


... or as the case may be, the rain.

  4. Happy Birthday to Mr Life! I rather fancy that sandpit. Perfect, with a roof! And the hall? Splendid.

  5. Happy Birthday Mr. Life! Isn't it amazing that grandchildren (and nieces and nephews) get gifts too? I sent my brother a gift and by darn, if there wasn't one in there for a certain little girl. I don't know how it got there - because why would I send his daughter a gift on his birthday? The birthday fairy must have gotten confused. (No, he didn't buy it either.)

  6. OAP? I'm guessing here ---Old Ancient Person? Happy Birthday OAP! They say life brings us in a circle. Hope you have the knees to get down and play in that sandpit! And I have to say, based on weather reports from My Man In England, the idea of a sunroof on a Scottish sandbox made me chortle!

  8. Happy Happy Birthday Mr. Life! And what a lucky guy to be pampered by such a marvelous woman! Perhaps a larger sand pit just for you? It's the secret to staying young. Grandson looks positively happy!
