Wednesday 2 June 2010


It has been hotter than hell here today. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but that´s how it feels. I forgot to say that there has also been an outbreak of chicken pox here, one little girl was behind us on the plane so we are watching the wee ones very carefully.

Our "girls lunch out" in Soho may be about to be extended to an overnight stay and a show because entirely by coincidence this weekend happens to be my birthday and some "girls" in my family and extended family want to treat me. I had banned them from giving me a surprise party because Davy always arranged that and without him it would be too difficult for me, but when they suggested that as I was in London anyway this would be a good alternative it seemed an excellent idea. I fancy going to see the "Queen" show "I Will Rock You". We may even treat ourselves to lunch out on Sunday too! Maybe a swanky hotel like the Langham? These things sometimes have a way of running wild!

So any of "the Soho crowd" want to stay over or other friends or family/extended family members join us please let yourselves be known and we will put you on the rooming list. As I have lost the BlackBerry I will contact you all when I get home.

Well, a very warm happy birthday to you! It sounds like a most delightful and fun weekend you have planned for yourself in celebration, hot weather be damned!

At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

Happy birthday! I bet you enjoy your London trip and show! I'd like to see 'We will rock you' too! I hope you have a great time!

Good luck with the chicken pox! said...

Congratulations Carmen. That is a massive acheivement. I shall be ording one when I get back home. said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes one and all. I would also like to see the Jersey Boys, but that may have to wait for another trip. And so far no chicken pox. Fingers crossed.

If you do get one, you must send me your home address so I can mail you an autograph. I've been doing them on 3 by 4 inch labels that you can then afix in the books. Also, after you've read it, whether good or bad, I'd appreciate it if you'd go to my Amazon site and write a review!

So far, I've gotten two reviews! One is a friend, a fellow blogger, the other is someone I don't really know at all. It is all quite exciting for me.
