6 word saturday

In labour fifty years ago today

My lovely daughter was born at 9.30 am on Scottish national poet Robert Burns’s birthday.   I have no tiny baby pictures – in those days everything was on ciné, much to my regret!   Here is the youngest one I can find:  , Sally  at 5 months cropped from a group and enlarged beyond what is reasonable.  She was 5 months old then!

    🙂 Happy Birthday, Sally ~~ Does she have a blog?
    🙂 I read Tilly Bud, she has a nice blog.
    😉 Nice ‘poem’ today. I wish I had read it before …

    I wish I would have thought about the poem before I read the explanation. I’m sure it would have evoked a completely different meaning had I read it in a vacuum. Nonetheless the meaning as you intended it is really lovely. Birthday Congratulations to mother and child alike.


  5. Happy Birthday to Sally! I hope the celebrations are going well. 🙂

    Awwh! How funny- my James was born on 23rd and I always end up thinking back to the hospital on his birthday. I was a fortnight overdue and had to go in to be induced. I was not at all amused. But it’s all worth it in the end, isn’t it, Viv? He came home for a birthday celebration this year, so that was nice.
    My 6WS will be seriously late again this week. Catch you later 🙂 Love to Sally!

    Thanks for the beautiful tree enamel from Harry! It will have pride of place somewhere in the study. Other wonderful presents I have had include a fantastic wind up/solar powered radio come torch come clock and a daylight bulb to got with a new lamp for your/my music cabinet from the boys; and a 101 uses of baler twine from some good friends. Love Sally

    Thanks Mum – I have those cine films and will take them to get them put on to CD soon. I have been getting training on all things archival with folks from the Northumberland Archive and they can get them done for me. Love Sally
