100 up!

Posting today will be delayed until early evening. It is my Mother's birthday and she has reached a century of life in a country that has now become but a shadow of what it once was.

One very proud son will therefore be enjoying himself in the company of 'the best Mum in the world'!

See y'all later............


Afterthought: All outstanding comments - and there are a quite a few - I will reply to this evening.....

To all commenters, many many thanks for your good wishes. Unfortunately, there are not many people who can boast of a parent reaching 100 - and yes it does fill one with pride.

One small point: Centurians no longer receive a telegram, it is a birthday card with a picture of Liz on the front. She also received what was termed a 'telegram', in its own 'presentational' folder, from Iain Duncan Smith.

The card and envelope with the royal seal will both be treasured by me for the rest of my days.

One hopes ones mother enjoys the occasion considerably

The Gray Monk said...

I trust she has received the Queen's congratulations - or have those been cut to save money as well?

Congratulations to your mother, a very fortunate lady to have reached such a venerable age.

WitteringsfromWitney said...

QE2: Thank you. I believe she did.

TGM: Thanks to you too - also see reply above re ER's greetings.
