Birthday

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 30 – Wish & Magic

Colleen Chesebro’s Poetry Challenge

Colleen Chesebro and I share quite a few interests in common, as a matter of fact we do find that when we do those quizzes on Facebook we sometimes get the same results! This morning we both ended up being like the moon… with a dark and a light side!

It’s my good friend Colleen’s birthday today so what better way to celebrate than to write her a Happy Birthday Tanka.

There will be no moons, dark, or light aspects to the birthday wishes as Colleen’s prompt words: wish and magic are much more suitable for a birthday poem. Colleen is a big fan of fairies, and I’m sure she’s partial to cake, and no doubt appreciates the wonder of rainbows so I thought this might be just right.

Birthday cake rainbow,Glowing with magic wishes,Fairy guests arrive,Gliding on light-hearted wings,Linger awhile, rest and play! (1)

A very happy birthday to Colleen, and all the best for a fairy special day!

I wish I could spend your special day with you and your winged fairy guests. Enjoy!

#Weekend Coffee Share: My birthday and Other News…

20161113_134358

Welcome to Kyrosmagica,

Pull up a cosy chair and get comfortable –  I have so much to tell you. It has been quite a week of colourful excitement, fun and frolics.  It’s been my birthday week so let me suggest a mug of hot chocolate topped with chocolate drizzled marshmallows…. Why not? Or if you fancy a Martini Espresso do join me in a moment…

In the meantime what about a journey back  in time in my special phone booth… I am getting older by the minute… on the bright side I’m not as ancient as these dinosaurs

We have a tradition in my family – my mum and dad decided that birthdays should last longer than a day. So when it’s anyone’s birthday we celebrate for a whole darn week! Not just a single day, we like to make it last, and last and last, …. ad infinitum.

So my fun week started off last Sunday with a trip to London with my two daughters. We made quite a day of it visiting Camden food market, (eating yummy Beef Rendang – which is a spicy Malaysian dish,) walking along the river from Camden food market, and then taking a bus to Covent garden, as the tube station was shut. My poor wee legs.

Here’s some photos that I’d like to share with you.

My keen photographer daughter Georgina is on the right clutching her camera, Natasha is to the left of her, our model for the day!

What about a little oriental charm along the way?  A beautiful Chinese restaurant that we discovered floating on the water! http://www.fengshang.co.uk/

We were in search of graffiti to photograph and we found plenty.

Sometimes you need someone special in the foreground to make it especially interesting….

What else did I do this week?

  • I went to a make up evening with my youngest daughter – the launch party for the new John Lewis beauty hall which was great fun. I nearly won the raffle prize but unfortunately I lost it by one number. My raffle ticket was something like 365, and the winning number was 364. A bit of a disappointment – but life isn’t all about winning, is it? It’s about experiences. Doing the things you love with the family and friends you love. That’s what truly counts.
  • I bought a couple of new books at Ruth Hatfield’s book launch. I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, I read the first in this series a while ago:

My review of The Book of Storms by Ruth Hatfield

  • I went out for a lovely birthday lunch with my hubby, and youngest daughter.

So before this week ends I’d just like to raise a glass to you, my followers, to thank you for your  continued support in this here blog. It means the world to me. In fact I’d love to raise a glass of Espresso Martini to you.

Cheers. Love ya..from the real me, no cartoon this time!

The Bloggers Bash is celebrating its First Birthday today.

Happy Birthday, Bloggers Bash.

Happy Birthday Bloggers Bash

On the 1st August 2015, just over 20 Bloggers attended the very first Annual Bloggers Bash event in London. Here are just a few of those who attended.

The Bloggers Bash was the brainchild of Sacha Black. She invited Ali Isaac, Geoff Le Pard and myself to join a committee to organise the event. Part of the event included The Annual Bloggers Bash Awards (also known as the ABBAs) where the blogging community was able to nominate and vote for their favourite Blogs and Bloggers in six award categories.

It was a nerve-racking day for many of those who attended, as this was the first time many would meet other bloggers, face to face, for the first time. Since then, many of these people have formed friendships which may never have formed had it not been for…
