Was surprised to see this come up on my Facebook!

I have a friend who puts her cards up, Christmas and birthday, on the rail around her living room so she enjoys them all year.
I worked with a lovely lady who is a Jehovahs Witness so never celebrates her birthday or Christmas just wedding anniversary. I should have asked her why but never did.

So sorry to hear that. I got a lot of messages but only 2 cards!! Are you getting out enough, involved in enough activities.
Hope things improve for you soon. Xx

My birthday was lats month. Obviously the pool of card senders is getting smaller but I was thrilled to get a card from my godmother who must be in her late 90s and has great difficulty getting out to buy and post cards.

Happy belated birthday, here's a birthday cake to enjoy.

Belated birthday wishes Emsgran cupcake flowers and DanniRae cupcake [ flowers].

I'm a Lancashire lass, so too far away to call for a brew.

Emsgran There are folk who have no family to wish them a happy birthday Why not be grateful that you have. I get the distinct feeling there is something missing in your life not related to having a friend. People don't however come knocking at your door saying can I be your friend so join a club that's how friends can be made..

Meetups?? I had no idea that these took place. Sadly I'm in Leicestershire otherwise I could have joined you for belated birthday wishes and wine!!
Happy Belated Birthday Emsgran! XX

Happy belated birthdays ladies. I have a group of friends with whom I share Birthday cream teas. We don't stick to the date but celebrate when we can meet up. Perhaps we could give Mick a list of birthdays and he could signal up the dates when he does his morning call.

Belated Happy Birthday. Put your birthday on your f/b profile & all your friends will get a notification when it's your big day. Missed a friends a few days ago as she still had "if you want to know my birthday just ask!"

silverlining48 Mon 03-Jul-17 17:10:41

Florenceflower, the flowers are lovely, thankyou.

catwoman Mon 03-Jul-17 17:02:21

Happy Birthday for yesterday Emsgran. Have you put the date of your birthday on your profile? I get a daily update for all people on my friends list that have entered the info when it is their birthday. I missed a good friends a few days ago as she still had written on her profile" if you want to know birthday then ask!! " cards are deffinately being superceded by a txt msg or a f/b greeting. X

Happy Birthday Emsgram, I suggest you have an 'official' birthday. go out and buy some presents for yourself, and phone out for a takeaway for your tea. A bottle of prosecco, perhaps?

Kim19 Mon 03-Jul-17 16:06:26

Violette, if you are willing to divulge your birthday date and your nearest accessible large town, I'm sure someone here would love to help you celebrate. ANY excuse but proximity is king, of course.

pinkjj27 Mon 03-Jul-17 15:35:55

Thank you Florence Flowers those flowers are lovely and make up for all the missed cards but you don't miss what you never had but you know what I mean.

DanniRae Mon 03-Jul-17 15:19:36

Those flowers are beautiful Florence! Are they in your garden?

radicalnan Mon 03-Jul-17 15:14:24

I am near Glastonbury if that is any use to anyone else.

Happy birthday to you two ladies hope you both had lovely days, cards are so expensive now it seems FB is the way to go.

FlorenceFlower Mon 03-Jul-17 15:07:41

Happy birthday to EVERYONE especially Emmsgran, Dannirae, Silverlining, pinkjj27 and Violette ..... hope you all get plenty more birthday wishes too. I'm very guilty of texting or Facebooking, and after reading these posts, will make sure I send more cards. flowers
