The last time I was the 'first' at anything of 'significance' was when I used to come first in the Parents Race at my sons school Sports Days - 30+ years ago. They used to be very proud of me winning the races - especially as it meant they got to share the winnings - a bag of sweets or lollipops.
Before that it was when I was at senior school - when I used to win the races, high jump, long jump and hurdles! (I learned to run and jump and climb at a very early age - being skinny, shy, wearing glasses and 'blessed' with titian hair,and freckles, it was of the utmost importance for 'survival' LOL)
So you can imagine my delight, that yesterday at the ripe old age of 60+ to learn that I was the first person in the United Kingdom to receive my Jo Capper Sandon designed stamps, and to blog them.
Just a bit of silliness to make you smile - as I have visitors this weekend - and won't be able to have time to use the rest of them or to blog them.
Gosh - I was the first - fancy that - can you see my silly grin - it'll last all day?
