David, my B-Day is today.
And I let slip my B-day yesterday to Meryl in chat. I noticed split-second before I hit the "enter" button, but hit it anyway. I stayed under the radar the last years, but now it's nice to have a B-Day thread on BM :D.

Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. My daughter had a sports event, so we postponed the family gathering (luckily only a small one) to the day after my actual B-Day.


LOL about the Psycho Children Chuckie. That's exactly how PC look like.

Lee, thanks for the pic of Monika and me in the diner. Not the most flattening one maybe, but who cares? We had so much fun. :D


Jude, what a cute pic of Brokie. A week without heating is bad enough, but at least it was before the current extreme cold spell.

Laura, that pic of Ennis and Jack never ceases to warm my heart. I get never tired of looking at it.

Kelda, even the digits in the video were right, only in the wrong order ;). I was 41 on the 5th, not 14 ;D.

Thank you all for your good wishes and photos. So many happy memories. I'm a red-eyed devil in Chuck's pic. :laugh:
We went out to a Greek restaurant for lunch (yumm) and later I had a friend and some in-laws over.

I didn't know until yesterday that you can send text messages to landline phones. Yesterday I had a text message read out to me for my birthday, and at the same moment I hung up, it rang again with another text, saying "Forget everything, I'm a day early."  :laugh:


Meryl's post came just in. Mmmh, you know what this girl loves: sweet potatoe fries.
And at Bryant Park with Brokie friends they taste double good. :D More happy memories!

I got lovely gifts from my family: from hubby a photographic book about the US and a poster with Heath as Joker. ♥♥♥
My kids bought me a children's book, which we once had and which we all love dearly ("Guess How Much I Love You?"). But somehow we lost ours, so now I/we have a new one.
And a card, a picture from Oliver and a bookmark from Oliver which I use for the photo book.

Not much in the way of celebrations yesterday, but still a very happy day, with Helen coming home, which of course was my best birthday present. :D

Thank you! :)

Oh myyy - so long ago. My first trip to the US ever. At that time I was really convinced this was a one-shot-thing. I owe it to the generosity and patience of Jens and my kids that instead travels across the pond became an annual event for me. Not to mention the Brokie-trips within Europe.
And of course I'm also thankful to my Brokie friends who gave and continue to give me reason for those trips! :-*

Posting four times in a row... ::)
But I guess since this is my birthday thread, I might as well hog it for a moment. ;D


I didn't have a Full House, but I had a very full house today. 17 people altogether. My family keeps growing - and meanwhile it's the next generation who brings their boyfriends in the house. :laugh:
My big table had seatings for 12 people and since a group of four came a little later there was enough space. The younger generation later gathered in the living room anyway. Then they all went for a walk with the dog, which made Tina very happy. She loves going with a group.
I had a very lovely day with so many of my friends and family. And after everybody was gone, Jens made pankaces extra for me today, as my birthday dinner (while the family ate something else). I am stuffed and very happy at the moment! :D

Happy birthday, dear friend! Last year, you were a little apprehensive about starting your job, but you have made it through in flying colours!

It has been an eventful year with your job, the loss of your mother  :'(, and us getting to meet your family and see you in your natural habitat!

Thank you, Meryl, Lee, Kelda, Paul and Chuckie! :-*

Yesterday was a halfway quiet day since we did the celebrations on Sunday already. But I got nice presents yesterday, we went to a Greek restaurant for an extended lunch, then the hubby and I had a nice nap, followed by coffee & cake, and in the evening I had leftovers from the restaurant. Presents, fine eating and napping was (almost) all I did on my birthday. Not a bad way to spend your birthday :laugh:.  


I also reread my thoughts from last year. Wow - how fast time flies. It's already been a full year since I went back to work. Back then I gave myself one year and then wanted to decide how to proceed career-wise. I had plans to either
- look for a job more close to my home
- maybe set the goal to become the head of a facility (nursery, kindergarden, the like)
- possibly increase the number of days per week to work.


Probably none of those will happen. I found out I'm very, very, very happy to work only two days a week. I have no intention whatsoever to work more than I do now. I have the weekend plus three days in a row all to myself and am not willing to give it up. O0
Of course if you only work two days a week you can't be the manager of a facility. And if I worked closer to my home I'd earn considerably less due to the fact that I live in a different federal state than my workplace is. In short, the payment is a good junk less over here in Rheinland-Palatinate.
As it is now I earn a good deal more than I had hoped for! I'd be stupid to change anything about it, and stupid I'm not ;D.

So I'll continue to commute, and continue with my two days of work. The work itself is mostly lovely and after changing the group last summer I now like my colleagues very much.
I have also plenty time for my family and to myself. It's all good as it is and I have no intention to change anything. :)

Sweet Jesus, no. :o
We are adventurous, but not that adventurous. We're stopping where the world (= the mainland) ends. Driving the Dempster Highway and on to Tuk. Always North, across the polar circle and further North, North, North - as long as there's a road. All the way to the Arctic ocean. I'm already excited, it will be an adventure for sure.

Now that you're mentioning it, I wonder how far the North pole is away from Tuk. :laugh:
Title: Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY PENTHESILEA!
Post by: Penthesilea on January 08, 2019, 02:48:09 am
Oh my gosh!

I wasn't able to calculate the distance from Tuktoyaktuk to the North Pole as the crow flies.
But: someone did it with the car! And it was the guys from Top Gear, of all people! I love Top Gear (British version only).
They drove with modified pick-up trucks to the magnetic North Pole! :o

And yes, I totally ordered the DVD on the spot. It's a pack of four DVDs with four different specials (one of them the polar special) and it's gonna be a birthday present for hubby ;D


ETA: distance from Tuk to the (geographic) North Pole is about 2100km = 1300 miles.

In 2010, I flew from Scotland to the Orkney Islands, rented a car, stayed there for two days, then flew to the Shetland Islands, rented another car, then drove north to the northernmost island of Unst, then walked to the north coast in the Hermaness Nature Preserve and saw the lighthouse on Mukkle Flugga (big rock). That's the northernmost tip of the UK. It was a fun journey!!

Nah, probably not. Temperatures should be anywhere between 13°C (=mid fifties F) and 5C resp. 40F. I will take a light winter jacked however, so I won't have to buy one in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. Been there, done that. Twice. On Monika's and my summer trips, lol.
One time we got surprised by snow and the matching temps in South Dakota in early September and the second time no snow but icy temps in the Canadian Rockies.
