A delayed birthday present

Today the HD3QBEM and I went shopping for my birthday present.  She had promised a piece of furniture or a piece of jewelry for my 60th but somehow the time went by and we never went shopping.  A few weeks ago she remembered that we had not yet been and that in October this year I would be 62 but ill health has prevented any weekend excursions for some weeks.
But today we went and purchased these sapphire earrings.   Aren't they beautiful?   I am really pleased with them and will wear them often with pride and thankfulness for my wonderful mother and her love for me.


  1. Beautiful earrings and well worth waiting for. Of course, now you can rewind your age to 60 again!

  2. Oh Margaret, what a lovely gift from your mum.
    As we say in Scotland "I wish you all the health to wear them".

  3. Beautiful! A wonderful gift.

  4. How kind and generous of your mother, these are beautiful earrings
