Happy Birthday for today to my lovely mother.
We got together for a lovely lunch in the sun and later put her in the hot seat.
Champagne - check
Cake - check
Flowers (Roses from the garden) - check
Poppy at feet - check
Cat at shoulder - check
Nearly forgot -
First present - check
Singing and champagne toasts - definitely.
We celebrated it yesterday so that more of us could get together before Alistair and Janka fly home to Vancouver today...
A rare get together from across the miles.
As Mum said later, because of the distance, they have had very few occasions like this in the last thirty years where Al and I are both there for her birthday, so it is something to remember.
Which reminds me - I must hurry up and get over there before they all head to the airport! Loving being on holiday. Can't believe it is a Monday! Big week ahead still :)
Carol service tomorrow and a few days of family get togethers to go before the my nephews also arrive on the 27th.
Must. Wrap. Presents......
