Happy birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me

Well my pressie to self, a new to me second hand lens off e-bay, has yet to arrive, but so far I've got a CD from a friend in the States, and earrings from my husband and a CD and the promise to cook dinner from my son, plus the odd cheque from my in-laws, which will go towards the lens.

Here's a bit of Snoopy dancing to celebrate!

I see you admire Julia DArling. I met her several yrs ago when she came here for our Lit Festival; had lunch with Julia plus Fay WEldon and others ( a real treat for Little Moi! ) Julia was a lovely person, bright sensitive funny quirky and I liked her petry and her writing very much. I was so sorry to hear of her death but she and her work will be warmly remembered for a long time.

Thanks all. I've had a good day.

Jan that sounds like an amazing day! I got to know Julia a very tiny bit by e-maiol just prior to her death. She was very ill by then and laterly confined to bed. I sent her some photographs of snow and things which she really liked.

I think she was an amazing writer. Jacky Kay was a friend of hers and she's working on Julia's blog at present to put something together for BBC Radio 4. I heard Jackie read the poem Darling this year, it's about sitting at Julia's bedside and it's very affecting. She also wrote a lovely poem about them both being like lighthouse. Check out her blog which was done for National Poetry Day this year.

Oh I tried it out in the garden today, it will be handy just to to pull views in a bit closer, the marcro function isn't that great, need to dave my pennies and get a dedicated lens for that, but good ones really cost.

The best thing about it is the quality of the glass, which is as good as a much more expensive lens with more twidly bits that I don't really need.
